    I worked at SAS Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong SAS (collegiate) culture. Perks at HQ campus are outstanding, but no similar perks for remote employees that work off the HQ campus.

    Cons

    Success is sometimes based on longevity rather than results. People are sometimes recognized more for making their peers happy, rather than customer-first.
    Complex and sometimes confusing portfolio of products, making it hard for a major client to understand nuances described in marketing briefs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that there's value in professional and complimentary services, in addition to the software sale. Clients also value the services, support and time provided by technical specialists as well as the software itself.
