Imagine coming into your first day at a new job, only to find a big tub of candy on your desk. Doesn't sound so bad, does it? In fact, it's just one of many benefits available at the companies Fortune listed among those with the coolest perks.

What's interesting is that those fun advantages actually benefit company and workers in roughly equal measure. A 2012 study by Principal Financial Group and the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services found that companies who gave their employees sustained benefits reaped major rewards down the line.

So fear no more when you take advantage of the free office buffet, because we're all winners here, somehow. Check out some perks below, and find even more at Fortune:
