    I have been working at SAS Institute

    Pros

    Great people. Best analytic solutions on the market, and making a real difference for our customers. Great benefits, including on site daycare and health care at the corporate headquarters. Great supports of education with free curriculum software for K-12 and home school teachers.

    Cons

    While we enjoy what we do and believe it is making a difference, it's still work :-). Otherwise, no significant cons to speak of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some areas of the business are stretched too thin to manage the year-over-year growth well, particularly in the cost and service centers, like marketing. The growth imbalance between what's happening in R&D and Sales can't continue to be supported to the level it should be if marketing and other service areas aren't allow to grow as well.

    I have been working at SAS Institute

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial culture, customer and employee centric company, privately held, strong brand, product quality, loyal customer base, fair pay, great benefits, great people, team environment

    Cons

    No cons - but if you are someone who is very focused on title or doesn't like working in a flat organization and wants to be 'upwardly mobile' versus results oriented, you may not be a good fit for the culture.

    Pros

    Challenging environment keeps you on your toes. Good technology, great benefits, and awesome middle management that recognizes hard work. Privately held.

    Cons

    Sales positions tend to require too much travel as we're industry based. Career advancement appears to be primarily limited to those working at HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the great work! Continue to adapt the business to industry needs but don't change the core of what makes SAS a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great work environment, supportive and great benefits. Time off is very fair and managers push you to take more of a leadership role. Compensation is great as well.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons. Office culture is great. Training and mentoring is always available. Great work-life balance and on-site services to support that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should keep doing what they're doing. My experience at SAS so far has mirrored what the company states as its values and priorities.
