Sas is not a sales cutlure, sales people were treated as a necessary evil

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I worked at SAS Institute

ProsBenefits were great and work life balance was good.

ConsThe pay was horrific, the movement of accounts made no sense and the managers are comped on team achievement not total number. So they would move accts around to under achieving reps to ensure the "team" hits the number. As an individual contributor this is not a good place for sales people to grow and advance professionally. Great technology - it would be much better if someone w/o a PhD could understand how to use it.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay the comissions due to the reps and stop moving accounts around to "socialize" the number.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
