I've tended to list stuff about the working environment in my
requirements in the past - flexitime, casual dress, friendly office, two
monitors per developer, giving your opinion not only encouraged but
could actually cause changes to happen, no Radio 1 or other inane pop
radio stations being played loudly near the developers (*waves at
Peter*), etc etc.

The work I've done has always tended to be mostly website related stuff.
I know this is sneered upon for being dull, but I quite like it.  The
main questions I tend to ask about the work itself are to do with trying
to avoid particularly horrible technical decisions (with mixed success,
it has to be said).
