Hi-tech companies play a central role in the Israeli economy, and hi-tech employees are amply rewarded.

Even start-ups with minimal resources frequently provide their workers with higher-than-average salaries, well-stocked kitchens, subsidized lunches from local restaurants, mobile phones, cars, activities for children during vacation time and generous insurance plans. Some of the larger companies even have their own gyms. And in return, their employees are dedicated and involved, working long hours, sometimes pulling all-nighters to complete projects on deadline. The atmosphere in a hi-tech company is intense, challenging and at times exhausting.
