I worked at SAS Institute full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Absolutely has great benefits, which I appreciate more now after I've left. Generally really good people and interesting problems.

Cons

Slow salary growth - you'll never see your core salary grow much even when you're promoted. There's little collaberation across departments and it can be near impossible to get the support you need from others unless you have a really good network. It's a long process to learn the company and start to have any significant influence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are losing a ton of young, promising leaders because they do not get an opportunity to advance quickly. Give people big projects that demand performance and reward those who do!

    I have been working at SAS Institute as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Place to work according to FORBES and many other industry reviews. Facilities for employees include health care, child care, cafeterias and much more. Contractors have access to the Cafe, but no other perks.

    Cons

    Contractors are not treated with long term consideration. Once you're there 18 months, you will be laid off under current SAS HR policy whether they need you or not. Someone else will be hired to do what you're doing, have to be trained which will put your department behind. The only reason for this HR policy has to be to keep them from having to hire you, and as such, keeps them from having to lay off any staff. Admirable, but provides a bit too much job security for some who should not be afforded it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing some amazing contractors who put their all into making SAS the company it has become, and will continue to be.
