The Triangle Business Journal unveiled its list for the Triangle's Best Places to Work for 2010.

TBJ unveils 2010 Best Places to Work winners - Triangle Business Journal

I’m not exactly sure what the criteria was, but I was shocked to not see SAS on the list.

SAS owns dataflux and they are on it though (for the small companies). Honestly, I don't think SAS is as much of a "hot" place to be anymore. As more people are more money focused, they tend to shy away from sas. Still a great place to work, but maybe not the best anymore.

Umstead Spa was on the list, and the SAS clan (Goodnights) also own that, so they certainly knew about the nomination process.

Maybe SAS asked not to be considered; it probably doesn't do anything for them except increase applications.

Of course SAS is a great place to work. I remember going to orientation as a new employee, and they spent the whole time talking about benefits. There were so many, the new employees became giddy. It was the strangest orientation and consisted of them telling us, "You get this and this and this and this..." One asked me, laughing, "When will we have time to work?"

I think few employers can compare in the Triangle or even in the entire country.

Even if SAS pays slightly less than other employers, I think the benefits more than make up for it. I would think that in this economy, they are getting more applications than ever.
