Thankfully, job hunting platforms like Glassdoor and LinkedIn can provide you with some insights.

A mature office environment, great salaries, highly intelligent peers, the company’s famous monthly beer bashes, the CV value, strong leadership, health/dental care, carious insurances, paid time off, employee stock purchase plan, discounts on products for you and for your friends/family and free buses or commuting are a few benefits you stand to enjoy working with Apple.

Salesforce has about 25,000 employees, with its headquarter in California. In addition to its fantastic employee benefits package, the company gives staff generous amounts of time off.
You see, Salesforce is heavily involved in charity and volunteer work and encourages its employees to join in, resulting in even more time off for volunteer projects. One of the employees of Salesforce says, “There is a sense of inspiration that comes from the leadership taking strong positions on social issues and making volunteerism such a key part of our culture. This sustains us during difficult times.”
According to employees of Amazon, “people don’t come here for the perks.
