Sas is all about the people , everything is about creating an enabling environment for people to do what they need to do. You have everything at your disposal to carry out your tasks . There is a culture of respect, innovation, collaboration and achievement. The management is great and mature leaders. By far the best company to work for . The only downside is that it is a relatively small company and lacks some of the complexity found in larger multinationals . Great place to work for !!!
SAS was a great company to work for, I managed to work myself from a receptionist role to a senior associate project management role from 2006 to 2016. the company's Professional Services department was not making money and the decision was to retrench however I am forever grateful for the opportunities provided me and the support while studying for me to advance the corporate ladder. the company found ways to offer compensation even if not monetary to it's employees such as medical aid, petrol cards and cell phone allowances, we were provided study leave and they enabled subordinates to learn about the different roles within the company so that they can advance themselves
supported studies and provided opportunities to work in the relevant field
traffic to work from pretoria
I learned a lot with this company however if Management doesn't like you they will do anything in their power to either make you resign or they have their ways to work you out! Other than some Managers it is a great place to work for with lots of perks!
Free cooldrinks and massages
Too much focused on BBEEE instead of the people who has the skills
SAS Institute is a very nice company everyone there is very friendly and approachable and they are always willing to help whenever help is needed.
Free training for all the SAS softwares
After they train graduate they do not hire them permanent
I have learned a lot about business, marketing, organizational strategy at SAS. I enjoyed most of my time there and really enjoyed the challenges on the job. A typical day for me consisted of preparation for client meetings and presentations or demos to customers. I really enjoy working with the customers and building relationships with them. The hardest part of the job was the extensive traveling required and being away from my family for many days in the month. It used to be a very nice company to work for but it has become very political in nature. The main focus has shifted to generating revenue and relationships with staff or work/life balance are no longer a priority.
Extended travel and long work hours
My typical day was laid back such that I had to give myself work to do. When I discoverd that Social Development had pulled out subsidies for the North West Child welfare member organization I took it upon myself to make sure that the outstanding financial statements were done and submitted. I was glad when my financial statements were audited and approved and government funding started coming in
I had the chance to learn Acounting the South African way
I worked with different clients, empowering many Analysts that grace the large banks, and travelling to to clients and other places, and outside of the country. I learned a lot of SAS products I had the opportunity to work with a lot of smart people. I traveled to Nairobi to set conduct training to a group of analysts, and this included sourcing out a supplier for computers, in a foreign country. I am very passionate about Statistics, I enjoyed sharing my knowledge with different people and empower them.
Free beverages, subsidized health insurance
Well I think the money
