Glassdoor has released its latest list of top employee benefits from companies like Facebook, Google, and Netflix.

“With nearly 3 in 5 people reporting benefits and perks being among their top considerations before accepting a job, some employers are raising the bar even higher when it comes to benefits and perks they offer to help attract talent,” said Glassdoor.

These are far beyond free food and an on-site gym, stated Glassdoor, with top companies offering life-coaching services, egg freezing, and free amusement park passes.

The list below is based on the job site’s Benefits Review platform, with information provided by employees of the respective companies.
