But here's my story
I have worked at SAS for a long time. Some of my best friends work here. We met in the gym or the break room or a conference room.Some I even met at local stores and restaurants. Over the years, we have worked together, played together, grieved together, and celebrated together. The people are great. If you ask a SAS employee to tell you why they like working here, most say healthcare, daycare, and the people. I'll agree with all of those things. But let me tell you about yesterday and you'll understand why I really like my job at SAS.
We're ready to make some updates to support.sas.com/community. We want these updates to be innovative, useful, and fun. So I scheduled a brainstorming session over lunch (yes, over lunch) and invited colleagues from around the company to come and participate. Ok, here's the good part: 17 people gave up their lunch hour to discuss ideas that can enhance how our customers work with our Web site, with us as a company, and with each other. It was exciting.
And that is why I think SAS is a great place to work -- the number of work days that offer something to be excited about outnumber the days that don't.
I hope that you find something at work to be excited about this week. It sure makes working more fun.
