In a few short years, Los Angeles has established itself as one of the leaders in e-commerce, and at some startups, customers aren’t the only ones who get to enjoy the products — employees do, too. Here are five startups where the company’s product is also a perk for employees.
Headquarters: West Hollywood
Bio: FabFitFun’s monthly subscription boxes come packed with beauty, fashion and fitness products, mirroring the company’s well-known health and wellness online magazine. Each employee receives a free monthly FabFitFun subscription, in addition to tons of beauty freebies.
Other awesome perks: Medical and dental coverage, a vibrant company culture and dog-friendly office and other benefits.
Headquarters: Culver City
Bio: MeUndies has built a monthly subscription service that brings comfortable and fashionable underwear to subscribers’ doors, eliminating the pain of navigating the underwear aisle at your local department store.

Every month, each Skurt employee receives a credit from the company to use on the service.
Other awesome perks: Fully paid health coverage, competitive salary and equity, unlimited PTO and more.
