Pros

Wonderful benefits, even for a lowly student intern! I can really tell that everyone I've met at SAS enjoy what they do. I worked in a small team and everyone was kind and understanding. Even as an intern, I felt appreciated and welcomed. Also, I got a strong feeling that this company is ideal for people with families, especially small children since there is a daycare on site!

Cons

Marketing and market research doesn't seem to be a strong point for this company. Given my short duration of time there, I can't say for sure, but the marketing team that I worked with struggled with communication and I've heard that the market research department is rather underfunded and understaffed. For a company that is the largest private corporation in the US, it is rather unknown to the public. When I tell people I interned at SAS, for most people (without comp/stat background) the name did not ring a bell... Overall,

    Pros

    SAS can be great for some, the benefits are great and they have a top-notch fitness program. On-site health care is convenient for immediate illnesses.

    Cons

    The company has a lot of under-employment and complacency. There is also a lot of nepotist. The biggest issue is that there lack of mobility/advancement.

    Advice to Management

    time to really innovate! the focus on sales and legacy systems is holding the company back.

    Pros

    Benefits Offices - company culture that most individuals get their own office Cary extras are unsurpassed - gym, massages, barber, medical facilities Great if you need child care for 3 children or less, even better off campus in a regional office - on campus there is a waiting list

    Cons

    Processes are set up based on a small company- not driven to accomplish sales in a timely manner. No documented process, seems like everyone assumes all workers have been there 10 years and just "know how things work" Technology is focused on addressing the needs of a few key customers who seem to keep the company in business. Spaghetti code is the least of the challenges Cary let's the field over sell and under deliver because there is no honest discussion about gaps in capability or performance No real bench-marking- wonder why a company of this size and maturity doesn't provide this type of data? Salaries are not competitive, even for NC, forget anywhere else Federal leadership is exceedingly poor and there is no "leadership" involved - no strategy- only politics and personalities Very poor treatment of women - many inappropriate relationships between high level managers / executives and other staff across the company- really bad in Cary.

    Advice to Management

    Technology, technology, technology - of this decade please Focus on good management practices not old boy politics and behavior Work on diversity! Most Caucasian work force ever! Remember that just because the company has a big name in NC, that the majority of your customers don't live there
