Great place to work, but hard to move up

If you work on the campus there are great resources available to you - gym, day care, post office, physicians etc. On campus everyone gets their own office with a door, it is not an environment where you work in a cubicle. SAS provides unbeatable benefits, but the salaries they offer are usually below average from what I've seen. SAS provides opportunity for growth as long as you take control and sign yourself up for extra training. Management here is usually extremely hands-off, but it's to the point where it's like pulling teeth to get feedback and performance reviews. You'll find yourself wanting to learn new material to advance, but you may not know what to do because there's no direction from management. Promotions also seem to be decided primarily on the "good ol' boy" system - it's about who you know.
If you can't move to Cary, NC to work at the campus, SAS has a lot of opportunities to work at home from a remote location.
Benefits, work-life balance, opportunity to work remotely, individual offices, tons of resources on campus
Career advancement, no official feedbacks or performance reviews, salaries are below average
