Photos: 10 tech companies with amazing employee perks

Google

The tech giant has often been praised for its fun and interesting office facilities--namely the Googleplex--and rightly so; with its on-site haircuts, a plethora of food options, game rooms, laundry and dry cleaning, themed office areas, and much more, what's not to like?

Other cool benefits include Google.org, a charitable arm of the company that allows full-time employees to work for a nonprofit or charity of their choice for up to six months, generous parental leave policies, on-site learning opportunities (e.g., coding and cooking classes, degree programs, guitar lessons, etc.), and "culture clubs" in its offices around the world that feature events and activities like Dragon boat races in Taipei and "New Music Wednesdays" with local artists in the Nashville office. Some offices even allow you to bring your pooch (or "Doogler") to work. It's easy to see why people enjoy working there.
