I have been working at SAS Institute

Pros

You can maintain work life balance in SAS RnD.
Communication from the top management i.e. CEO, Directors, etc. are good
Good infrastructure

Cons

Slightly laid back work culture...
The Salary you get into the organization plays a crucial role. The better you bargain the higher is your entry package. As you are not likely to get good hikes in subsequent years unless there is band change which is very very difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the top management is doing good in terms of communication to the grassroot levels.

    I worked at SAS Institute

    Pros

    They offer employees great benefits and the tools needed to do your job efficiently. Some really wonderful, brilliant and hard working people work at SAS.

    Cons

    Definite downside and career staller: Working in a regional location versus the "Mother Ship" in Cary, North Carolina and not being able to relocate, your career options are limited to sales or sales support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more field opportunities as a way to keep motivated and exceptional employees with the company. If you aren't in Cary the career path at SAS is very limited - too bad as SAS is really a great company.

    I have been working at SAS Institute

    Pros

    Great benefits, culture promotes work/life balance esp. for those with families. Training is top-notch and is encouraged by management. Given latitude to perform your job without much interference from management. It is what you make it however; must be proactive to be recognized.

    Cons

    Full of cliques; esp between those employees that have been there more than 10 years. Leadership training for management team is lacking; has not evolved with the growth of the company. Opportunities for advancement can be hindered if you are not an insider. If you are a regional employee based away from Cary the perks of being a SAS employee are diminished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a curriculum put in place to groom leaders within the organization and develop protocol for managers.
