Perks

Yesterday in Facebook, I posted a simple status update: "Thirsty, no paper cup to drink water". The post was in jest of my company removing paper cups in the guise of being environment friendly and asking us to bring our own cups. But I was surprised when one of my FB friends actually asked me to bring a cup. That statement made me wonder whether I have over-reacted? Perhaps this is a common thing among other companies out there.

But I wonder which company:
1. does not provide any stationaries - no pen, pencils, staplers, rulers, tape, etc. As a new employee, you have to bring these at your own cost
2. does not provide coffee/tea - you have to use your money on the vending machine they allocated
3. does not provide paper cup for water
4. at one time, decided not to include paper to dry your hands in the toilet and instead use toilet paper rolls to dry your hand.

If this sounds to you like I am working in a Chinaman company or a local Malaysia Sdn Bhd company -  I am not. I work for a US-multinational company.

Oh, maybe they pay very well .. so they cut some of these corners..

Let's see: I have worked 10+ years in this company. The biggest bonus I have ever received is 2 months - ONCE.

Increment for the past 3 years are around 2%.

I question why am I even staying put!
