Sure, perks like in-office video game systems and ping pong tables are fun — but at the end of the day, are they really going to help you put more money in the bank? Unless you spend a fortune in quarters at the arcade each month, probably not. If your goal is to save up, you should probably focus on things like retirement plans, employee discounts, medical coverage and more. The good news? There are a handful of companies that offer benefits like these in spades.

The ten companies below offer a wide variety of incredibly generous and beneficial perks, and best of all, they’re hiring now. So not only will your resume thank you — your wallet will as well. Check out their open jobs and apply today!

1. Wells Fargo

Company Rating: 3.5

Where Hiring: Salt Lake City, UT; Clive, IA; Gainesville, GA; Fairbanks, AK and many more

Benefits Details: As a financial services company, it’s perhaps no surprise that Wells Fargo offers employees benefits that can save them some serious cash. In addition to a generous 401(k) program and medical coverage, Wells Fargo offers eligible employees unique perks, including a $5,000 adoption reimbursement, scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 for dependent children of employees, and tuition reimbursement of up to $5,000 a year.

2. SurveyMonkey

Company Rating: 3.7

Where Hiring: San Mateo, CA; Portland, OR

Benefits Details: The average American spends about $6,759 a year on food — even more if they live in areas with a high cost of living. SurveyMonkey is doing their part to help employees lower that cost by offering two meals per day plus snacks, which employees rank in their top five most meaningful perks. Besides that, SurveyMonkey provides unlimited PTO, a great health plan and a 401(k) match.

3. Bed Bath & Beyond

Company Rating: 3.0

Where Hiring: Plymouth Meeting, PA; Okemos, MI; Memphis, TN; Nashua, NH and many more

Benefits Details: Eligible full-time employees receive medical insurance, a matching 401(k), an FSA and more, but even part-time associates benefit from their generous employee discount of 20 percent off at not only Bed Bath & Beyond, but also sister companies like buybuy BABY and Cost Plus World Market. That will save you serious cash on everything from home decor to groceries to baby supplies and more!

4. Navy Federal Credit Union

Company Rating: 3.7

Where Hiring: Pensacola, FL; Merrifield, VA; Charleston, SC; Kapolei, HI and more

Benefits Details: Due to its nearly unheard of 100 percent match up to seven percent on 401(k) contributions, Navy Federal Credit Union is sometimes said to have one of the best retirement programs in the country. If that weren’t enough, they also offer financial education classes so employees can fully take advantage of their great perks.

5. Facebook

Company Rating: 4.6

Where Hiring: Menlo Park, CA; Papillion, NE; Los Lunas, NM; Austin, TX and more

Benefits Details: Really, it might be easier to say which benefits Facebook doesn’t offer — but we’ll try to highlight some of their most notable ones nonetheless: a wellness allowance, four months paid parental leave, a free laundromat and barbershop in their Menlo Park HQ, a $4,000 stipend for new parents… the list goes on.

6. American Airlines

Company Rating: 3.8

Where Hiring: Fort Worth, TX; Washington, DC; Los Angeles, CA; Chicago, IL and more

Benefits Details: Airplane tickets are pricey enough on their own — often costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars — but if you’re a frequent jet-setter they become all the more expensive. Luckily, American Airlines employees and their immediate family members fly free. On top of that, they can also get serious discounts on associated travel costs like hotels and car rentals. So if you have a serious case of wanderlust, this might be the perfect employer for you.

7. SoFi

Company Rating: 3.7

Where Hiring: San Francisco, CA; Helena, MT; Healdsburg, CA; Claymont, DE and more

Benefits Details: As one of the OG student loan refinancing tech companies, student loan debt is an issue near and dear to SoFi’s heart. Because of this, they offer employees a generous $200 per month to help them repay student loan debt, with no yearly cap, and an additional $5,250 to cover tuition assistance on approved programs, among many other perks.

8. Johnson & Johnson

Company Rating: 4.0

Where Hiring: New Brunswick, NJ; Warsaw, IN; Raynham, MA; Fargo, ND and many more

Benefits Details: Johnson & Johnson is one of the few companies nowadays that boasts a pension — a retirement plan in which a substantial amount of contributions comes from the employer itself. Not your thing? They also offer a 401(k). Besides retirement plans, Johnson & Johnson also provides pet insurance, fertility assistance and onsite child care centers, to name just a few.

9. Activision Blizzard

Company Rating: 3.8

Where Hiring: Santa Monica, CA; Charlotte, NC; Bentonville, AR; Portland, ME and more

Benefits Details: Without a subsidy, healthcare premiums average about $321 per month for an individual. But if you work at Activision Blizzard, the company covers 100 percent of the premium for eligible employees, and 80 percent for dependents. In addition, the company provides up to $7,500 in tuition reimbursement, 25 days PTO after one year and 40 days of fully-paid maternity leave.

10. Genentech

Company Rating: 4.0

Where Hiring: South San Francisco, CA; Hillsboro, OR; Oceanside, CA; Washington, DC and more

Benefits Details: Biotech company Genentech certainly cares about the physical health of their employees, as evidenced by their onsite fitness center, health center and comprehensive medical coverage — but they also care about employees’ financial health. Need proof? Just look to their generous allocation of stock, financial counseling sessions and free shuttle service to their South San Francisco HQ.
