Glassdoor recently rated and ranked the top 25 employers based on their vacation and paid-time-off policies. While these companies may not offer to actually pay for your vacation, they can give you a better work-life balance.

The results are based on benefits reviews that U.S.-based employees have shared on Glassdoor.

To be considered for this report, companies must have earned an overall rating of at least 3.5. Glassdoor ratings are on a five-point scale, with 1 being “very dissatisfied” and 5 being “very satisfied.”

The highest-rated employer for vacation and paid time off, California-based biotechnology company Amgen, earned a rating of 4.7 out of 5 for that perk.

Amgen employees have described their benefits as “too good to be true.” They receive three weeks of paid vacation to start and also get another two weeks off when the company shuts down around the Independence Day and Christmas holidays.

All of the top companies for vacation and paid time off, along with their ratings for that perk, are:

  1. Amgen: 4.7
  2. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center: 4.6
  3. Ikea: 4.5
  4. Google: 4.5
  5. Monsanto Co.: 4.5
  6. Salesforce: 4.4
  7. General Motors: 4.4
  8. Costco Wholesale: 4.3
  9. Capital One: 4.3
  10. Accenture: 4.3
  11. Ericsson Worldwide: 4.3
  12. American Express: 4.3
  13. Kaiser Permanente: 4.3
  14. JPMorgan Chase & Co.: 4.3
  15. KPMG: 4.3
  16. Nokia: 4.3
  17. FedEx: 4.3
  18. Intel: 4.3
  19. T-Mobile: 4.2
  20. Microsoft: 4.2
  21. Deloitte: 4.2
  22. Liberty Mutual: 4.2
  23. Progressive: 4.2
  24. Humana: 4.2
  25. Eastman Chemical: 4.2
