Business software company SAS slipped to No. 2 -- behind Google -- in a prestigious list of great places to work.

Cary-based SAS, which last year ranked tops in the annual ranking compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute, was one of two Triangle-based companies that made the list of 25 multinational companies. Durham-based Quintiles, the world’s largest pharmaceutical services company, was ranked No. 18, up from No. 23 last year.

“We have a work environment that allows people to do their best without unnecessary distractions so that they can be more creative and productive,” SAS CEO Jim Goodnight said in a statement. “It’s one way we ensure we are delivering innovative software solutions to our customers.”

Two other companies with a major Triangle presence also made this year’s list. Storage giant NetApp ranked No. 3 and computer networking company Cisco ranked No. 10
