I don't see my phone and laptop as a perk, it is a ball and chain which prevents me from easily segregating my personal and professional life.

I remember seeing a programme about how Blackberries, and similar, were causing lots of stress for such reasons.

Curiously in the UK we get taxed on these as work benefits!

I see my Blackberry and laptop as ways my employer assures that I will be available when they need me - which is a perk for them not me ;)

They pay for my cable access at home which I do see as a perk - I get to use it everyday but I don't actually work everyday on it ;)

As mentioned above to galbinus_caeli, the irony in the UK at least is we get charged additional tax on items like laptops, Blackberries and similar, as they're considered work benefits! I wouldn't use my blackberry-a-like or laptop for anything other than work, so it's a bit galling.

I've only just started taking advantage of getting my broadband paid for, and agree that it's a useful perk.
