    Pros

    Awesome place to work. Lots of employee amenities and they take very good care of you and your family when you work here. Low stress work environment, great people and beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than scale (at least in non-development and technical areas) and if you don't have a family it can be hard to justify the difference despite all of the employee perks. Professionally, there are some growth limitations and it seemed when a manager left they didn;t promote anyone, they just swept their employees under an existing one. Knew some very unhappy people there.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing defined career paths for non-technical employees.

    Pros

    Not what it used to be, but still not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    Ponderous bureaucracy with too many incompetent managers. Way too much internal competition and politics. The employee-centric culture that made SAS standout 20 years ago, has eroded and the company is becoming just another software company.

    Advice to Management

    Read the "Peter Principle".
