• Facebook's careers page and Glassdoor reviews break down the tech company's top benefits in North America.

• Some perks include free meals, ample time for vacation, and lots of support for new parents.

• Facebook's benefits received a 4.7 out of 5 stars on Glassdoor.

It's well-known that big tech companies tend to offer lots of tempting perks.

And Facebook is no different. A quick glance at its careers page -- along with its Glassdoor reviews -- reveals a whole slew of enviable benefits. So does reporting from the Guardian's Julia Carrie Wong, whose recent article highlighted the inequality between Facebook staffers and contractors.

Here's a look at some of the perks Facebook offers employees in North America.
