    I have been working at SAS Institute full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good medical, dental, vision insurance. Not sure how much longer it will last.

    Cons

    Not every manager or division head follows the idea of work/life balance. It’s like pulling teeth to get them to understand when they are so far removed from their own family responsibilities. Not friendly to the struggles of single-parenting. Management expects everyone to be on campus every day. Working from home is frowned upon. Inconsistent with policies. One policy is interpreted one way for one employee and the same policy is interpreted completely differently for another employee. Even under the same manager.

    There are some transitions taking place that are causing some people whom have been complacent to be stretched. This can be challenging on all parties involved
