    The business software company looks for “innovation and creativity” from employees. To help inspire and aid them in their personal and professional life, it has created a Work-Life Center, where they get advice on how to balance the two worlds, meet with support groups, and even participate in a peer-mentoring program. If that’s not enough, SAS also offers discounted Montessori education for employees’ children and hosts a series of summer camps for kids. Read “A Fighter for Schools.” Also check out the Great Place to Work review.
