Silicon Valley with its many high-tech firms is one region well known for its ample -- and sometimes quirky -- work perks.

They include high-tech startups such as SendGrid, a provider of corporate email services, which provides workers a refrigerator stocked with beer, and free cookies on Tuesdays. And last month, it flew the entire staff to the Mexican resort town of Cancun for a four-day meeting.
