Re: Some incredible perks
@jastroff- Obviously, when you start looking at the broader economy it becomes difficult to make one statement that fits all. It is hard enough to do that in tech. But I'd say tech is a slightly special case where persk are always going to be a little better. The fight for talent is real in all industries, but the fight for good technical talent is even crazier. I'd expect companies like Facebook, Apple, and Google to always fight harder for talent than say, Exxon. That said, we often repeat as a mantra on IWeek that all companies are tech companies. Certainly GE and other major companies that see how software is changing their business are now int he fight for talent. So I suspect we will start seeing silicon valley style perks spread to at least techies in other industries.
But I don't think every industry and every size company will feel a need to jump in which is why tech dominates the list.
