I like about the employer

SAS can be a very different company depending on where you work. Depending on the area, the pay is actually quite good. It's cool to work for a place where the CEO is visible.

I dislike about the employer

If you're in the "inner circle" things are fantastic. If you fall out of grace for any reason, management will do everything in their power to try destroy you career-wise irrespective of performance. HR is fully supportive of leadership teams lying (even when there is hard, physical evidence to the contrary). They try to tout the family friendly angle, but if you have children, as a woman, expect to be demeaned and for the mostly-male management to use that against you--especially since most have wives that don't work. Collusion between leadership and HR is shocking and disappointing. If you're a part of the good old boy club, you are absolutely golden. Rumor has it, if you make it to a director level, part of the rite of passage is a requirement to try to terminate an employee. Tread lightly here.

I like about the employer

Benefits, especially health care, were phenomenal. On site food service is delicious.

Being closed at Christmas for a week was nice, until I had to start being on call (including Christmas Day more than once).

I dislike about the employer

The division I was in (SSO) does not do 35 hour work weeks, and many of its departments expect most employees to work evenings and weekends on a routine basis. If you're in a department with on call, expect no regular consideration for additional hours work. Even after overnight calls with work lasting several hours, I was expected to be in the office the next day on time for a full day.
I also felt there were subtle undercurrents of sexism. It was never overt, but if you were the only woman in a meeting (it happened a lot in my department), it could be hard to get a point across. It was more of a dismissive attitude (as if I wasn't in the room), not blatant comments or actions. More than once, I was told to "calm down," as if I were being hysterical.
Finally, if you're someone who needs to take more than 5 sick days per year, don't believe the unlimited sick leave line, In SSO, I was informally counseled two different years for the amount of sick leave I took, including one year where I had an extended FMLA leave approved.
