5 Companies That Have Incredible Office Perks

How cool would it be to go to work every day, only to find that your office is less like a work space and more like one of those decked out “Real World” lofts?

Google is known for it’s exceptional employee perks, like free meals, free cooking classes, on-site gyms and massage therapists. And Facebook, crowned most desirable place to work by Glassdoor in 2017, offers free arcade games, free meals and snacks, an on-site barber shop, and even on-site dental and health care.

And now, Glassdoor has listed some of the 2018 companies that offer the best office perks (not to be confused with employee benefits, like paid vacation and paternity leave). Here are five of the best.

Genentech

This biotech company in San Francisco is, according to Glassdoor, “setting the gold standard when it comes to perks.” They offer shuttle services to their office, which offers on-site child care, car wash facilities, bicycle repair, haircut services, spa treatments and a full-service fitness center.

The Penny Hoarder

The personal finance website headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, was voted “the Coolest Office Space” by the Tampa Bay Business Journal, likely because of several things: a library that comes complete with a two-sided fireplace and T-Rex head mantle, according to Glassdoor.

There’s also a room for nursing mothers, a “quiet room” for twice-daily meditation sessions, and an indoor park that features “artificial turf flooring, company-branded yoga mats and beanbag chairs.” There’s also a coffee bar along with air hockey and shuffleboard tables.

Commvault

The data protection and information management software company has one of the coolest office perks at their headquarters in Tinton Falls, NJ: an in-office slide from the fourth to third floors. Also: ping-pong, foosball and pool tables, a fitness center, softball field, basketball court and walking trail, according to Glassdoor. And while the company offers unlimited PTO, why would you want to miss out on all this cool gear? Exactly.

Procore Technologies

The best part of the office at this construction management company is its beachside locale in Southern California. If gazing out at calming  waves wasn’t enough, there’s also catered lunches, a dog-friendly office, a gym, and on-site massages and haircuts.

Acquia

Two words: nap room. No, make that three words: beer on tap. This Boston-based cloud company built their office to help motivate employees, which apparently includes snack-stocked kitchens,  foosball, air hockey, ping pong, PS3s, a gym and monthly on-site massages. This is in addition to the non-judgmental naps and beer.

From total marijuana legalization in Canada, to North America becoming more chilled out about its own state laws, buying your favorite green flower has never been easier and growing your own is almost as simple.
