      A company lost in cloud and digitalization

      Pros

      The company has managed the covid-19 pandemic with an early interest in protecting its employees. Salary and benefits are still good, but getting smaller over time.

      Cons

      SAS has struggled to keep on top of cloud and digitalization. The technology stack is old and competition is fierce. The company is trying to transform, but it's not quite clear if it's too late or there is still a chance of significantly increasing market share. Mid management in the UK is weak and really just good at admin function - no clear vision to be seen anywhere.
