Here at Time Out’s NYC offices, we’ve got a pretty stellar view of the Hudson River and the High Line, plus a tradition of ice-cream Fridays in the summer. But evidently, other places have office perks like designated rooms for staffers’ puppies and futuristic sleep pods. If you’re looking to get fit, check out the companies with gym deals. Or if you’re a music buff, take a peek at which employees get treated to free concerts. Some places even have an unlimited vacation policy (weekend getaways galore!). Read on and be jealous.

Brooklynites don’t need to trek to Chinatown to find good Shanghainese food—just head to Greenpoint to dine at M Greenpoint. Plop down at one of the tables and go to town on the menu of dim sum favorites. Think hot and sour soup ($8), scallion pancakes ($7), the juicy pork buns also known as xiao long bao ($9 for six) and ma-pao tofu ($11.50). Vegetarians will be happy to hear that M Shanghai Bistro offers both a vegan and vegetarian version of their menu to make ordering sans meat that much easier. Wash down all the steamed dumplings and spicy stir-fried vegetables with big pots of oolong, chrysanthemum or green tea ($4 for a small, $6 for a large).
