    Re: Meanings.

    "Fringe benefits" can vary, depending upon the company and the country. In the US, fringe benefits can mean anything from medical insurance to free enrollment at a local gym to having a refrigerator stocked with free food in the corporate cafeteria. "Fringe benefits" refers to anything the company offers over and above your salary.

    "Boardroom row" usually refers to a corridor of offices occupied by executives of the very highest level.

    Re: Meanings.

    "Boardroom row" uses 'row' with its meaning of 'an argument'. Hence, when the company directors disagree very strongly over some matter to such a degree that it affects the Company and becomes public:

    Didier Herrmann told to leave

    LogicaCMG's board continues to reshuffle its members with the announcement that executive director Didier Herrmann has been asked to step down with immediate effect.
    Herrman had joined the board after LogicaCMG acquired Unilog in 2005. It is understood Herrman was not getting on with the newly-appointed interim chief executive.
