    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

    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

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

    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.
