Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, offers free travel to the annual company meetup that brings all the work-at-home employees together. Pinterest makes sure you have all the Apple equipment you need. Zynga offers a commuter reimbursement program to repay you for getting back and forth to work. EventBrite provides a transportation stipend to make sure you can get to and from work. Google gives you a free rental car to run errands. And, even some companies like Twitter and Pinterest don't believe in tracking your vacation time. They believe freedom makes their employees more productive.
