9. Jerks are getting great perks
Remember when a job came with a salary, paid vacation, and (if you're lucky) health insurance? That's so 2006. If you're a hotshot engineer at a fast-moving tech company, it's hardly worth getting out of bed unless they're offering door-to-door shuttle service, gourmet chefs, a kegerator, and yoginis on call 24/7.
But why stop there? Google provides Razr Scooters to get you to your next meeting that much faster, Twitter hosts charity wine-making events, Eventbrite serves up trampoline sessions, and Dropbox (pictured) stocks its conference rooms with Legos. And, oh yeah, Valley geeks also get paid 15 to 20 percent more than the national average. Nice work if you can get it.
