One of my favorite perks at salesforce is that we get 56 hours a year of volunteer time off (and really good donation matching). What other companies have something similar?

We get 5 days Time2Give, during covid it was increased to 10 days to volunteer. There’s also a donation match for eligible charities, but don’t know the limit.

That's really good too, I like these kind of perks - I don't really have that at my current job but something to suggest

Black Baud, which sells primarily into the non-profit space, employees can an hour of additional PTO for every two hours of volunteer time. They also have a donation matching program and a grant program where employees can nominate charitable organizations for company donations.

That's a pretty cool concept. Because people can't take advantage of the PTO unless they're willing to commit to the volunteer hours.

We match up to 10,000 in donations and I think we give 2 days of volunteer time

Nice! I think you match double what we do ($5,000). Though I think we increased it during COVID.

In my former life I worked with REI (the outdoor rec company) and they give good volunteer time off also. I wish more tech companies did this.

Years ago, when I worked at Bank of America, they offered 5 paid days of volunteer time. I wish I'd have taken more advantage of it back then.

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

Got in a spat with my SO. He didn’t want to wake up to drop me to the airport at 330am and said it was unreasonable that I was asking that of him. He helped arrange a taxi service (we’re on vacation). I am still pretty miffed that he thinks he’s in the right to avoid being inconvenienced. I woulda woken up and taken him and it’s not about saving dollars. Sometimes you show love by being willing to be inconvenienced. F here fwiw
