As Indeed notes, generosity in the benefits department (e.g, health/dental care, parental leave, stock options, company matching programs, etc.) and above-average wages (even for entry-level employees) is key to securing a spot on the list. However, a standout, unique benefit goes a long way as well. The report calls out some specifically solid offerings from certain companies on the list, from Fedex's wedding leave, to Capital One's adoption and surrogacy reimbursements, to Verizon's relief fund for natural disaster victims.
The main takeaway, though, is the fact that tech companies consistently have some of the best benefits out there. Then again, that squares with the fact that tech companies make up a huge swath of the Best Companies to Work for in 2018.
