    Pros

    Best job I've had and best company I've worked for. I work with great talented people and management motivate and trust people to work on the right things.

    Cary on. You do a great job of communicating strategies and provide a productive and fulfilling environment, thank you very much.

    I worked at SAS Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The local team is good and people are nice to work with. You can test some good ideas and local management give you rope to try them out.

    Cons

    Serious shortage in resources in all aspects, sales, Presales and consulting while Regional Management keeps asking for growth.
    Salaries not at par to market although expectation is to compete with the other large vendors.
    Local management applies reasonable pressure but has limited decision making authority from Regional Mgmt.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in the market and the team. Give flexibility to the team to act. Trust your local managers.
