Among the many Stack Overflow office traditions, birthday boxes are one of the longest standing favorites for the office to honor and show appreciation to its employees. Around from the actual inception of the company, the celebration includes a personalized meal and a party package—decorated to suit and filled with special treats prepared by office chefs.
One way Stack Overflow employees bond and blow off steam around the office is by playing ping pong in between brainstorming sessions. Since the table is classified as a ‘work-free zone,’ it serves as an equalizer between every level of employee. Staff enjoy competing with managers and CEOs—and enjoy winning against them even more.
