    Pros

    Good co. culture. Products work. Once sold into an account, very difficult to be removed.

    Cons

    SaaS model. Sold by the 'server' rather than by the user - so many many users can be on a solution and you get no additional revenue until server is maxed out.
    Management: Local management was terrible - unethical and immoral.

    I worked at SAS Institute full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are many smart, nice people. Offices with doors instead of cubicles. Interesting products to work on. Work-life balance was good. Benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Your experience at SAS is dependent on which department, product, etc. you work with. In some cases social acumen is more important that professional skill and capability. It's unclear how employee performance is rewarded. The opportunities for advancement are sparse.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice for management.
