Ben & Jerry's

If you're an ice cream lover, Ben & Jerry's offer to employees of three free pints of ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet every day is a big perk. If you're also a dog lover, Ben & Jerry's could be the ideal place to work because you can bring your pooch to the office. Sean Greenwood, public relations spokesperson for the company, describes what interviewees may see when they visit the company, "If they sit in the lobby for a few minutes, they're more than likely to see a dog going outside. I'll say, 'Oh yeah, we're a dog-friendly place. It's part of the tour. This is the design department — Momo is there; Jack is in R&D, Allison's in retail, Scout is brand new ... ' They're just like your co-workers."
