• Facebook is now the most desirable place to work in the US, according to Glassdoor.

• Facebook’s careers page and Glassdoor reviews break down the tech company’s top benefits in North America.

• Facebook’s benefits received a 4.7 out of 5 stars on Glassdoor.

Glassdoor just crowned Facebook the best place to work in the US this year.

That’s not shocking, considering some of the company’s tempting perks.

A quick glance at its careers page – along with its Glassdoor reviews – reveals a whole slew of enviable benefits. So does reporting from the Guardian’s Julia Carrie Wong, whose article highlighted the inequality between Facebook staffers and contractors.

On its jobs site, Facebook advocates for a “holistic approach to benefits and perks,” and focuses on several different spheres, including health, family, community, finance, and convenience.

Here’s a look at some of the perks Facebook offers employees in North America.
