You just can’t mess with Beer Fridays. For the third year in a row, F5 Networks, once a scrappy Seattle startup and now a major provider of IT infrastructures, has once again left its competition in the dust with a refreshing, hoppy end-of-the-week tradition that has lasted since its early days. “Beer Friday,” one employee tells us, “is core to the culture of F5.” Even those who don’t drink are fans of Beer Friday, which they refer to as “Free peanuts, chips and veggies Friday.” Refreshments aside, in an office of more than 750 people (and 2,000 around the globe), they also just appreciate the chance for a weekly get-together with co-workers from other departments.

Today’s Lagniappe (a little something extra thrown in for good measure) – Here’s a YouTube video on Life at F5:

The Green Goldfish Project is a quest to find 1,001 examples of marketing lagniappe for employees. Green goldfish are the little signature extras given to employees. They help differentiate a company, increase employee retention and drive positive WoM.
