Seems like we've been here before.
We've covered this topic a couple of times before (2011: Best Company to Work For -- Again and 2013: What good is being a "great place to work"?), so you can refer to these previous blog posts for details. But I would like to point out a nice video that appeared on NBC's Today show this morning. (My only disappointment is that, just like when they shot Iron Man 3 in my building in 2012, I wasn't invited to represent the face of SAS. Apparently I have a face better suited to blogging.)
The best part of being a great place to work is that it provides a great environment for providing value to customers. None of this matters and none of this will last -- none of the perks or anything else -- unless SAS employees can deliver software and services that make a difference. That's what we are trying to do, and shown we can do, through 38 consecutive years of profitable growth.
