    I have been working at SAS Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Campus-like environment with many on-site services: gym, day care, cafeterias, etc.
    Very low employee turn-over
    Good internal resources for self-motivated people
    Private offices for employees (not cubicles)
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Very complex software with a lot of history
    Lower than industry-standard salaries
    Very slow to make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Become more agile and allow innovation to happen more quickly. It seems that many decisions are made for non-technical, non-business reasons. That is, many decisions are made for so-called political reasons. This makes SAS seem to be a place where employees need to "learn their place" in the pack and fear making suggestions that are technically good or are good business thoughts, but go against old-time employees who want to continue doing things their way. SAS is a remarkable place to work, but it would be better if technical/business merit trumped political capital.

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

    Pros

    very supportive of employees - good physical work environment, big offices, good equipment, great benefits. On site day care, health care, great food, lunch time sports leagues. Showers.

    Cons

    not so friendly to outsiders who have not been with the company long. Training for new employees is a bit light because most people have been here a long time and don't need orientation.

    Advice to Management

    holding employees more accountable for performance would help address some degree of complacency that exists because people don't worry about losing their jobs or the prospects of the company not being able to continue to provide as well for them.
