WORK-LIFE INTEGRATION

Ninety-five percent of SAS’ assets drive out the gate every evening. It’s our job to maintain a work environment that keeps those people coming back every morning enthusiastic about what is possible. SAS focuses on holistically balancing and integrating positive aspects of work and life. By taking care of our employees, the rest takes care of itself.

On average, you spend 54 percent of your waking hours at work. Why not do something meaningful that you can be proud of? SAS is making a difference in people’s lives all around the world. Our analytics software helps organizations make important decisions that drive change every day – like how to capture the bad guys, keep kids safe, feed the hungry, and ensure that people who struggle to learn are not lost.

WORLD-CLASS ENVIRONMENT

WORLD-CLASS ENVIRONMENT

Depending on the SAS location, you could be working in a college campus atmosphere or even a castle. Lots of windows, pops of color and original artwork offer inspiration throughout the day. Work out with friends at lunch, or take a yoga class, and come back relaxed and rejuvenated. Our Cary headquarters has an on-site recreation and fitness center, and our regional offices contract with area health clubs to encourage wellness.
