    I worked at SAS Institute as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fabulous working environment. Beautiful campus. Nice grounds. Modern technology and highly focused on work-life balance. Flexible working hours. Most employees have private offices.

    Cons

    One negative employee can affect your career. In my case, I was highly productive and came under new management structure. I was highly needed in the work team I was assigned. New manager didn't feel I had the qualifications to continue.

    Advice to Management

    Work to keep quality employees. If a team member is productive, and the team is in need of help, don't shuffle around members because of a remote managers initial assessment.

    I worked at SAS Institute as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone full-timer gets a private office (at least at HQ), great benefits (free daycare, on-site doctor, etc (at HQ)).

    Cons

    Turnover rate is so low, it could be hard to move up in the company. People are rarely fired or quit so you have to wait until they retire.

    Keep it up
