I have been working at SAS Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I love the collaborative culture here at SAS; you don't see the backbiting and negativity found in other large companies. Not only my team, but the entire business unit, is supportive, both in work and the work/life balance. There is a common principle of helping one another to achieve common goals - that is in and of itself considered success. The services offered - full gym and pool, yoga and other exercise classes, playing fields and organized teams, large health care center and on-site pharmacy, on-site salon, massage, drycleaning pickup and delivery, car detailing, on-site child care, gourmet food options and several cafes to choose from, walking/running trails, classes and support groups, huge 'family fun day' events, flex time - these things are a brilliant way of alleviating the stress of everyday life and making employees feel like part of a family. Productivity is consequently high, employees are happier - everybody wins.

Cons

Because of the job satisfaction rate, people rarely leave, so there is a great deal of competition for jobs. The ability to move laterally is also somewhat challenging for this reason.

    I have been working at SAS Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to approach work tasks independently and participate in planning for group effort to achieve goals. Flexible work schedule and great environment. Excellent support for maintaining work-life balance.

    Cons

    HR is inept, does not respond to serious issues brought to them and is not supportive of employees, only management.

    Advice to Management

    Develop long-term plan and communicate it to employees directly via official channels rather than allowing word to be passed on (and distorted) via rumor-mill.
