    Tech companies are notorious for offering cool perks in a bid to convince people to take a job with them over a cushy gig at a bank or consultancy firm.

    But team collaboration platform Jive Software takes the bacon with its offer of free pork products every Thursday for its staff.

    The data extracted from Glassdoor’s benefits review also reveals that new Huddle employees get a £5,000 bonus when starting out at the company, deemed a ‘Cuddle’ by the firm.

    Airbnb staff, meanwhile, get $2,000 towards a nice holiday.
