    If you're here, you have the best benefits there are.

    Tech work isn't all it's cracked up to be: In addition to great pay and flexible work hours, Silicon Valley firms also offer fantastic benefits.

    Is your resume ready yet?

    Career Web site Glassdoor took a peek at what various companies offer their workers. Its findings are perhaps not surprising: Google has terrific benefits, the best of any firm around.

    Behind Google are Costco, Facebook and Abobe, the Business Times noted.

    Other Bay Area companies fared well: Intuit, Chevron and all made the top 10.

    Glassdoor used data from "23 million members" to make the rankings, Forbes reported, relying on workers to be honest with their workplaces via a "company review form."

    Pay is the key driver behind a good place to work. And tech delivered: base pay for software engineers at Google is $128,000, and $120,000 at Facebook.

    But Costco's workers, who make far less, still make way more than fellow low-end retailer workers at, say, Walmart. And they enjoy tremendous benefits, Forbes noted.
