SAS is a great place to work, but you have to be there a very long time to advance.

I worked at SAS Institute

ProsSAS heavily promotes work/life balance. SAS offers countless benefits (not just health insurance...) like aquatic center, onsite childcare, subsidized meals at the onsite cafes, gym, and list goes on and on and on.

ConsIt is difficult to take advantage of the countless benefits unless you're comfortable taking more time away from your work...which is hard to do. Opportunities for advancement are rare since employees rarely leave SAS to work elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't hide from giving feedback positive or negative to your direct reports. If you want your team to improve, then you have to provide the feedback and guidance to make it happen. It is imperative that you lead by example and develop the people that work with and for you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Good benefits. It's a job. Rare layoffs. Cons: Depending upon where you are, you may get a supervisor and/or manager who has been there a very long time, and because of close ties… Advice to Senior Management: Give hefty "early retirement packages" to selected managers. It… More
