I worked at SAS Institute

Pros

Good salary, benefits but most of them are useless to most people.

Cons

Senior management has no clue about the industry practice they are heading. People expect everything on a platter and make an issue out of everything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some senior level domain experts instead of expecting juniors to lead everything.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in Cary, NC

    I have been working at SAS Institute

    Pros

    1. Great company, great culture, great products.
    2. Realistic expectations
    3. Fantastic people
    4. Company does not answer to Wall Street and does not lay people off for no reason.

    Cons

    1. It is difficult to move upwards in this company because employees stay in their jobs for a long time.
    2. Because the benefits are so good, the pay is lower than competition.
    3. There is nepotism and favoritism in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some internal turnover and disruption may help to take the company to the next level. Just because an employee has been with the company 20 years does not make them better than someone who has been there 3 or 5 years.

    I worked at SAS Institute

    Pros

    Benefits were great and work life balance was good.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Pay the comissions due to the reps and stop moving accounts around to "socialize" the number.
