Even though I quit SAS, I still like it. They try their best to be a good place to work, and you can't fault them for that.

SAS is a great place to work. You won't find a better employer or environment. Trust me on that.

There have been various surveys by various groups, not just Fortune's; I am pretty sure they were #1 on one of them at some point (about a decade ago), but I can't back it up.

I agree and we should be proud to have some world class organizations like SAS and Quintiles based in the Triangle. Every company has it's faults, as some posters have pointed out, but these two in particular have grown from little acorns to major world players without losing touch with their roots.

I absolutely love working at SAS (for all the reasons Snoogs mentioned AND SOME)! I've been completely spoiled and therefore could never work for any other company ). It's so funny to me when people try to find negative things to say about the company. The bottomline is that the ranking is weighed heavily on employee surveys/feedback. So being ranked #1 means guess what...the employees here are happy!! Nothing else really matters.

I wasn't pointing out any faults, just to be clear. I'm a big fan of SAS and what they've done for my family. But the fact-checker in me won't let a false statement go uncorrected! Ha That's what my husband would have said.

I like Mr Goodnight's comment that he can spend money on employee benefits and have a stable workforce, or he can spend it on Headhunters to fill the vacancies when they quit if unhappy at working conditions

I saw this interview and I was very impressed that he said that. It just shows that if the top people treat their employees well, it goes a long way!

I know so many people that work at SAS and so many that WANT to work there! I heard, in the interview, that they have a 2% turnover per year and the average is 22%. Amazing.
