    I have been working at SAS Institute full-time (More than a year)


    SAS is consistently ranked near the top of best places to work. This is especially true if you work at corporate HQ in Cary NC.


    Salary and total comp is lower than you can get elsewhere for a similar role. Very low turnover is both a blessing and a curse as it limits internal opportunities.
