    I worked at SAS Institute full-time (More than 10 years)


    Perks and quality coworkers round out a stunning campus. It is a great place to work. The medical benefits and profit share are top notch. Unbelievable childcare benefit 1/2 of the cost.


    Not a great place for remote advancement. Be in North Carolina if you want to advance. Sometimes company fails to listen to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to to the boots on the ground and customers. Sometimes managers have been in place so long they are stagnant in their experience.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SAS Institute (Cary, NC).


    The main component of the interview is a presenting on a topic that was chosen beforehand by the interviewers. You have around a week to learn and discuss a topic that you may never have heard of before. The interviewers are very interested in your thought process for dealing with new problems.
