    I worked at SAS Institute full-time

    Pros

    SAS Viya is good technology that offers customers a lot
    Some great technical people in region and head office
    Lovely offices and facilities

    Cons

    Regional and country management do not understand AI and the value that it can bring. There are more interested in internal sales processes and do not offer vision / leadership
    Reputation in the market place is that SAS isboring old school but not cool "old skool"
    Too many products and solutions so lack of focus and expertise. Need to rationalise

    Advice to Management

    Oliver provides a great vision on technology however is being let down by lack of dynamic leadership in sales, professional services and marketing.
