Project Manager (Former Employee)
Cary, NC

I worked at SAS Institute

ProsBenefits and lack of surprises. Nothing much ever changes around SAS, so if you like a routine, you'll like SAS.

ConsNothing much ever changes around SAS, so if you want to make progress or be creative, you'll be stifled.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your heads out of the sand--SAS software doesn't work and is a pain to use. Stop pretending like nobody can touch SAS's functionality, because even SAS software can't do most of what it claims to do. A sales process that requires a year to purchase and an installation process that requires a lengthy service call is not intelligent business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Change the culture from a feudal system to a real multinational company.

Principal Developer (Current Employee)
Cary, NC

I have been working at SAS Institute


Pros: Job security for GOOD professional employees with extensive scope to move around the company. The benefits are remarkably generous, and Dr Goodnight genuinely cares about… Cons: The very poor middle-management. Very ineffective and usually the least bright take on management. Most of the managers run for office, hoping to be "liked"… Advice to Senior Management: Learn how to manage people with intelligence; and don't pretend that you are… More
