    Besides the great healthcare, employee discounts, stock options and casual attire, I really appreciated the Connector, which is a private bus system for Microsoft employees. I didn't have to worry about driving in gridlock traffic. I could use my commute time to catch up on emails, read a book, or nap. Another great benefit is the Giving Campaign and Microsoft matches charitable donations.

    Medical is best and 401k is not so good

    The physical health stipend. If you don't want a gym membership, you can opt for a yearly $800 stipend that goes towards any sort of physical activity-related item (ski gear, yoga classes, camping equipment, etc).
