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

    Pros

    It's about the people - for the majority of SAS, people are well-treated and given an opportunity to have an excellent work/life balance. Good benefits, including medical, dental, vision. Management actively solicits and listens to feedback.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a job, know there are "two" SAS cultures - the traditional Software (R&D, Customer Experience, Sales/Marketing) and the newer SAS Solutions OnDemand. Stay away from latter. Traditional SAS offers the Work/Life and Culture that you read about. The SSOD culture is long hours, much stress, and high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take a hard look at the profit-draining SAS Solutions OnDemand division.

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

    Pros

    If you work hard you are able to advance and dictate your own path. Work life balance is at the very top for large corporate environments. The work place is made so comfortable to promote innovation its almost hard for outsiders to imagine.

    Cons

    Possibly more guaranteed work from home time but for the top workers there is flexibility.
