A lot of the companies in this slideshow are generous with the vacation days, but the movie rental and streaming service Netflix doesn’t bother to set a limit. It also doesn't require a 9-5 work day, which is all part of the Los Gatos, Calif., company's “freedom and responsibility culture.”

"There is also no clothing policy at Netflix, but no one comes in naked," the company website's careers page reports. "Lesson: You don’t need policies for everything.” Its five-word policy for expensing, entertainment, gifts, and travel is: “Act in Netflix’s best interest.” All employees are allowed $10,000 per year for health benefits, and whatever they don’t use, they get to keep, so it literally pays to be healthy.
