    I worked at SAS Institute full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people; low cost, on-site daycare and preschool

    Cons

    Low salaries - they used to say because the benefits were worth so much, but now on par with most other tech companies

    Advice to Management

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SAS Institute (Cary, NC) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Initial interview with direct supervisor of the position interviewing for, followed by a phone interview with the department director and then a group interview with all supervisors in the position's department. After that, a background check and drug test was performed.
