Techies' homes are their castles

Author: JT Smith

Technology workers want freebies that set them free.

CNet reports that's the conclusion of a new survey to be released Wednesday by, which polled 1,000 technology professionals on
their preferred perks. The Minneapolis-based career Web site found that the most popular fringe benefits were telecommuting aids
such as subsidized home PCs and Internet access.

Techies also want their companies to spring for membership to local spas or health clubs. A free car and
wireless phone rounded out the survey's top five perks. At the bottom of the list were game rooms and
free haircuts.
