    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Claims to be an awardee for "Best Employer of the Year".

    Cons

    Too structured/ lack of flexibility and agility in terms of management style. Downside is, if gatekeepers to top management, business development and project implementation are too rigid and strict, focus won't be customer experience/relationships and creative solution offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Use team collaboration rather than gatekeepers in coming up with business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Great job with the progress of the company in terms of the innovative products and its benefits for the society and also for creating a company that grows on you with time.
    Dont play favoritism to certain employees just because they are your family or close friends but judge them with their work and sincerity.

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

    Pros

    Nice place , will give you exposure of many things personally and professionally which you will not get anywhere else.
    Nice place if you want stable life.
    Good exposure to new technologies.
    Helps you to give a lot of time to your personal life , which is difficult to find anywhere else
    Employee friendly policies except Superannuation
    But in whole a good company to work for

    Cons

    Increase onsite opportunities so that people get attracted to stay for longer period , I feel the whole environment around onsite opportunities is generally laid back and no one wants to address this concern , but this is the only reason why young people do not stay back for longer period.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring in onshore roles for java guys as well
    Make a rule that we can retrieve superannuation whenever we want because it is our money
    We get 104 Work from home days every yesr , encourage employees to use them.
