Lol raises what is this 1970? CEO bonuses additional management and shareholder value is where it’s all going. Coffee going away is a really bad sign because the perceived benefit value is much higher than the cost. I bet you won’t le have to pay employees a couple more thousand a year to have comparable value to the employee. Something about being fucked over on coffee every morning has always made me a bit annoyed with my employer.

My business has raises as part of the standard yearly review package. If you don’t get a raise you ranked as not meeting standards. So ymmv.

My company is lorg. Cutting to Gmail may have saved $100k/year or more.

For appropriate context, my company is significantly lorger than at least 90% if the companies google lists as adopters of gsuite when you go to research on its website. And no, it’s not a listed company.

We actually have raises! If I remember my starting salary correctly, my pay has exceeded inflation, though my skill and value to the company have increased in that time.

I'm not bothered by the fact if changing the coffee. The reason behind the budget squeeze isn't hidden and seems reasonable to me. What bothered me was the tone. They tried to spin it like a benefit. I think it was just one over stimulated person in the facilities group and not a trend, but we'll see.
