    I am a software engineer here (and the submitter of the ad). This company is really a great place to work, we have regular gaming nights, casual work environment, good social events (go karting/paintball/beer & pizza night). You will get to work on interesting/challenging stuff and not have insane hours. We also offer things like personal project time for software engineers (after probation period), similar to what google does, so you can spend friday arvo working on projects of your choice or reading technical books etc

    I would trade all that in for professional managers, succesful outcomes, cool projects and a chance to go home and get on with my life. I don't live to work.

    Your right, the things I listed as "benefits".. well not everyone cares about that stuff.

    I believe we also have the qualities you listed. Some of the developers prefer to get in early and leave at 4 to spend time with their children. We have a good work life balance (ie professional management), rock solid job security (ie. we are very successful and the established world leader in the mining training industry) and many other benefits.

    Geez I sound like a HR fanboi. Which I am not :)

    Firstly, I don't work at this company and know nothing about them. But in general little benefitss like that are a small but fair indicator of a company's treatment of their staff, in my experience anyway. Companies that make small, consistent gestures to their staff are generally good ones and the morale boost it gives to the average worker is a benefit to the organization as a whole. I'm really amazed that some places seem so ignorant of this, and are more scared of spending a few bucks short term.

    Of course some companies only use these incentives when crunch times roll around and as soon as they're over, so are your benefits. I've worked for a few of them before and I find that kind of carrot dangling patronizing, it feels like they're trying to pay your overtime with food and toys more than anything. (Not that I'm even suggesting this company does that).

    I find it refreshing to see a company talk about the smaller things they offer their employees. After all, anyone can talk shit about how great their company is and how cutting edge their projects are. Although needless to say, you'll never know what a place is really like until you go for an interview and finally when you start working there.

    Also, Mick. You should take more time to read the guy's post. He does mention a few of your points in his original statement...
