    I have been working at SAS Institute as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid-back environment, each person gets office, interns treated like full-time employees, good campus facilities (food, recreational center, intern activities), open door policy, approachable employees, 35-hr work week

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other tech companies, don't have much diversity in recruiting interns

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate more with the team by offering team updates and luncheons, don't forget to give interns a synopsis of current project development before meetings so they aren't confused

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    You won't feel like an intern. They make sure you are doing meaningful work and are always willing to help when you need it. Great learning experience.

    Cons

    Older crowd of developers. Extremely smart and helpful but hard to fit in when you are mid 20s-early 30s.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Everyone seems super happy.

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

    Pros

    Work Culture to a certain extent

    Cons

    - Managers and Supervisors do not know how to respect trainees/interns/delegates. You never feel like you are truly part of the team.
    - Some really rude employees.
    - Lazy HR
    - Everyone plays the blame game, nobody is ready to take responsibility for anything.

    Advice to Management

    - Increase head count and budget for the marketing team.
    - Keep managers in charge who know how to lead a team, or teach them how to.
    - Empower your interns and trainees
    - Start taking responsibility to move in the right direction instead of pointing fingers at each other.

    I have been working at SAS Institute as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work was very challenging. Got an opportunity to work with the most elite people in the industry. Overall, a good learning curve

    Cons

    Not much of a con but I wished there were more people to guide me during my intern.
    The compensation is not exactly at par with the top tier companies.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the compensation more in level with the other top companies. Apart from it, just keep doing what you are doing right now
