A lot of things here could be better.
An elite few built world-class skills because they carefully curated their careers over a long period of time while continuing to up-skill on their own time+dime. Many had to put up with less than ideal, to downright awful managers for certain... — read more
I almost wish we would have cuts because, like this, I'm worried 24/7. I always feel like we're in the calm before the storm and something bad is about to happen. If anybody knows if any cuts are coming or, even better, can confirm that we won't be... — read more
I am weighing an offer in marketing. Should I say yes? Im curious more about workload and culture than comp here.
In 2019 almost the entire automotive team (including me) were let go. People with years of experience from 1 year to almost 30 years. Sales in automotive were almost zero in 2019. Existing customers are not renewing. It's a real mess. They were... — read more
Will there be an impact to us if a recession hits soon?
Attrition is more than enough to satisfy any need for a reduction in costs.
It is a pity that this company no longer knows how to keep quality people. I am disappointed to see SAS today because it used to be nice to work here. At the same time, I am surprised at how many better opportunities there are outside. SAS is... — read more
Email originally said they’d come the first week of April and now that has passed. Not that anyone but the already very well paid people in the top ranks expect anything but wondering if anyone has been informed of s raise or promotion? Thx
I hesitated a lot but in the end I accepted an offer that is not much better than what I have here. The reason is I don't want to stay here anymore. I wanted to leave as soon as possible. There were also those who tried to persuade me to wait for... — read more
Enter your suggestion in this thread.
include as much detail as you can, thx.
Retirements or whatever you want to call whatever is about to happen. This is the year, isn’t it. The year it all really starts to fall apart. Anyone who has details please share. Not everyone who is affected deserves to be.
I am very anxious, I hope to survive this round of layoffs and at the same time I feel helpless because I know that all my efforts do not mean much when it comes to making the decision whether to cut me or not. Does anyone have more info on who... — read more
I heard layoffs are coming to PSD
Be a pal and post the text of the article in today’s paper about SAS. Got to be a subscriber to see it, wondering how PR is spinning it.
Goodnight informed employees that if they don't show proof of vaccination by Nov 1 they will be fired by Nov 30, even if they are remote employees or already had covid. Way to treat people like they matter. With turnover already ramping up, I think... — read more
Amazed at the number of talented folks leaving here in Cary. Just google "last day at sas" on LinkedIn... How bad is it going to get before the bottom falls out!!
The atmosphere is very tense. There are many red flags that there could be cuts. I hope everything will turn out for the best, but I am preparing for the worst.
Anyone hear of layoffs coming to prep for IPO?
I could be alone in this but things seem to have gone from bad to even worse since this sale news leak. It’s every person for themselves more than ever. C-team communication to the masses has ceased. Hello, paging Jenn Mann, so-called steward of... — read more
Come on, some of you SAS people know what's going on. All cpmmunication has stopped. Managers not talking, nothing. Please anyone who knows what is happening or will happen, give us a chance. I feel like the 3rd class passengers on the titanic with... — read more
Pray that you do not get acquired by Broadcom....60% of you will no longer be there....
Revenue numbers are terrible and the layoffs are not surprising. No company can keep workers to its detriment for too long. Still, I wonder if the SAS could still have done more for us?
"While not disclosing any numbers, SAS spokesperson Shannon Heath said layoffs had been made in work areas focusing on site support and training. The cuts reflect adjustments SAS is making to its workforce environment in the wake of the COVID-19... — read more
More SAS cuts today - across multiple divisions.
I was one of the staff who was offered a transition and declined. It didn’t take me long to find something comparable (at least in pay) and was wondering how everyone else is doing? Who else decided not to go along with the transition and look for... — read more
How many people have been laid off so far due to the pandemic?
The Childcare Staff this week learned they are being let go and the Childcare facilities being turned over to Bright Horizons to manage. The current childcare staff have been given the option to transition to the new company but with a significant... — read more
this is a blatant lie. how can someone be allowed to repeat this BS? as of Q1 2020...i speak from first-hand knowledge...people get RIF'd from SAS all the time...RIF = LAYOFF, that is the TRUTH.
Posted elsewhere: 2000+ people have disappeared off the employee phone list since 9/2018. I know, I was one of them and I still have friends sending me the list monthly. Schabenbuggered, indeed - he's not just ignorant of software at any level... — read more
This review is based on my belief of how SAS operates, based on my experience working there. Do not kid yourself. SAS lays people off. The method they use is quite unsavory. Rather than actually hold above-board "layoffs", they target specific people... — read more
What's the update? How many and where? Buyouts? Voluntary?
They put employees under hatchet managers and then force them to retire/strongly encourage to quit. The employee is then made to choose between being laid off or quitting.
As a SAS customer, I hope the company goes down the sh--ter. For annual license renewal, sales holds our feet the fire (lets our license expire MULTIPLE times during renewal) then takes a pound or two of flesh. We chose SAS because it is a reliable... — read more
The SAS problem is the CEO doesn't want to lay people off because it would tarnish his reputation as someone who has never had mass layoffs. Does SAS need to lay people off? Hell yes. There is so much dead weight it keeps them competing in many... — read more
As a current SAS employee, I can tell you that the industry disruption is in fact affecting the company currently. Sales are down and there's a major hiring freeze currently. With respect to the lack of layoffs, that can be attributed to our... — read more
Teradata is laying off a lot of people, Oracle has constant layoffs, SAP has them all the time - I think we are doing fairly well compared to most other companies - I am not sure what is behind it completely, maybe our company structure, maybe... — read more
