Missing a little job search motivation this Friday? Spend a few minutes on this slideshow on The companies featured all have their unique perks intact, benefits like a free bicycle after the first year, an activity lounge equipped with a Nintendo Wii (and a 52-inch plasma TV to play it on), or company-covered health care.

Now snap out of it and use that envy to your advantage.

What's your ultimate employment perk? Let us peek inside your brain via the Comments section.
