It seems that tech companies in San Francisco are no longer settling for just offering their employees breakroom snacks and discounts on gym memberships.

According to a survey of the city’s largest tech companies in the San Francisco Business Journal, employees are getting sneakers, on-site haircuts and paid time off to go volunteer.

Here are some of the coolest perks, according to the survey of 115 companies:

Dropbox: On-site haircuts; complete music studio equipped with drums, piano, amplifiers, etc.; board game nights; ping pong; console gaming rooms; DDR (yep, a real machine); Starcraft; pool.

StubHub: Free ticket raffles for sporting events, concerts and theatre events in the local area.

DocuSign: A “tranquility room” with soft lighting and water fountain for mothers or people who want to chill out; Nerf guns.

Taulia Inc.: Brand-new pair of orange sneakers on two-year anniversary.

SoundCloud: Global exchange program — employees have opportunity to live and work from another office for a quarter (offices include Berlin, London, NYC, San Francisco and Sofia, Bulgaria).

Piston Cloud Computing: A beautiful, awesome hat of your choosing (bowler, fedora, panama) that is adorned via a hatting ceremony.
