Best place to work, ever

Software Engineer IV (Current Employee) Cary, NC

ProsSmart people; laid-back, academic atmosphere. Lots of great perks like a full gym, olympic pool, health and fitness programs, inexpensive great food in the cafeterias, m&m's (and lots of other free food) in the break rooms. Individual offices - cubes are only used for interns and in space emergencies (which are rare).

ConsThere is somewhat of an entitlement attitude among many employees which makes it frustrating if you're actually trying to get work done. There are a lot of political games at the division head level that are annoying to those in the trenches.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid to manage out poor performers. I have seen many people hang on for years or even decades that we'd be better off without.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at SAS Institute full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: I love the collaborative culture here at SAS; you don't see the backbiting and negativity found in other large companies.
