A solid, long-established employer
Senior System Administrator (Former Employee) –  Cary, NCMarch 7, 2019
Operations teams are better than average. Work-life balance is reasonably good, though a lot depends on your team and manager. Generally, leaving around 5-6 P.M. is typical. On-campus lunch options that are subsidizes make things a bit easier. On-campus child care is nice but is on a seniority basis so is less likely to be available.
Pros
On-campus lunches
Cons
Not the place for doing FOSS work

Great culture
Technical Intern (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAJanuary 27, 2019
The work can be slow sometimes but it is relaxing and everyone is hard-working and friendly. The culture there is great and they also offer you discounted meals and lots of free snacks and other perks such as a healthcare center, daycare center, salon, and more! The compensation is not super competitive but SAS focuses a lot on work-life balance. Would definitely recommend.
Pros
Discounted lunches, great benefits
Cons
Salary

Sas
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cary, NCJanuary 8, 2019
The culture at SAS is the redeeming quality that all employees refer to. While the pay is sub-par to many of its technological competitors, you still see longevity in most employees.

In over 15 years working at SAS, I had exciting, challenging work with great people and an outstanding company. I worked in a number of positions in pre-sales, consulting and education, and each was very rewarding.

If you're not at Corporate HQ
Solutions Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CAOctober 31, 2018
The experience at SAS is very different if you work from home versus working at the Corporate Headquarters. The HQ folks tend to forget that there are others in the field

Terrific work-life balance; Poor management

SAS is a terrific place to work if this is your last job. Great balance. The company has a poor leadership team, is struggling to grow revenues, and refuses to change. No career path or job rotations.
Pros
Balance, beautiful campus
Cons
No strategic plan

An overall great place to work with stimulating, challenging work based on cutting edge internally developed and open source tools.
IT Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Cary, NCOctober 17, 2018
Talented diverse technically adept staff ready to take on any challenge. Inconsistent front-line and mid-level management with excessively heavy approach on status and planning reports with little inherent value. Inconsistent mission focus and turf-wars between divisions.

Strong industry presence
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Cary, NCJuly 17, 2018
SAS strong industry presence is a plus and offered the opportunity to learn much more detailed analytic processes. Management is very strong with industry experience and willing to facilitate opportunities.

The workplace culture is very team oriented, with SAS being very dedicated to employee job satisfaction through resources, flexible work arrangements, etc..

The difficulty in my role was a single client base offering increasingly difficult new sales opportunities. However, as sole Senior Account Executive, I enjoyed significant latitude in pursuit of opportunities.

Interesting experience
Sr. IT Service Desk Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cary, NCJune 10, 2018
Great fit for some and not for others. I enjoyed my time there and wish all the people I know there well. I've some awesome personalities and unfortunately, a couple of scary ones too.
I learned a very valuable lesson working there and that is just because you lose in life doesn't mean you have to lose the lesson.
Pros
Too many to list.
Cons
No time to take advantage of perks and benefits.
