    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SAS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    • Company-provided gym and on-site cafeterias are wonderful
    • If you are a developer, you have run of the place and will be able to shift jobs until you find a good group

    Cons

    • SAS periodically cleans out its middle-tier employees. Unless you’re Director level or above, don’t count on staying at sas past your 40th birthday, because you can be replaced at 40% salary savings.
    • You’ll hear about benefits such as day care, but forget them— you’ll be so far down the seniority tree (and everything is seniority at SAS. Everything.) that your kids will be in college before you’re eligible.
    • Salaries are well below those of other employers.
    • They take full advantage of NC labor laws, especially the one that lets them fire you for no reason. Don’t expect to find another job in NC after SAS; people will assume you’re crazy, unemployable, or incompetent because WHY WOULD ANYONE EVER LEAVE SAS?

    Advice to Management

    For those that have given their career to you, think about giving second chances. You lose a lot of talent in the periodic clean-outs. The people you get rid of live destroyed lives because they are unemployable after you. Perhaps think about offering job transition help.

    Pace and change can be slow
