What is the end game for SAS and JHG? Many of you think there will not be an IPO. I believe that as well. I suspect that JHG values the company way more than potential buyers (I can’t say that I blame him—it’s his life’s work) or SAS would have been... — read more
SAS is doing much better than some similar companies
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
Forget logic when it comes to layoffs
There is very little reasoning to who was laid off. Many who haven’t performed are still there. The roles affected are senior mid and entry. It seems like a rush to meet profitability for a quick acquisition. Can they IPO? Current customers aren’t... — read more
More layoffs next week
There was a rumor about more layoffs next week, do we know if that's true?
Changes you would like SAS to make?
A lot of things here could be better.
Vaccinated to death...
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
200+ people laid off in February.
The golden era of SAS has long past
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
Any news about cuts?
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
Good company to work for?
I am weighing an offer in marketing. Should I say yes? Im curious more about workload and culture than comp here.
"SAS has never had layoffs" --Jim Goodnight
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.
How would you make SAS better?
Enter your suggestion in this thread.
Will there be an impact to us if a recession hits soon?
Many better opportunities outside
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
I'm not stressing about layoffs anymore
Attrition is more than enough to satisfy any need for a reduction in costs.
Raises or promotions? Anyone? Bueller?
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
if you get a buyout or get laid off pls post here
include as much detail as you can, thx.
Not waiting for buyout
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
I heard layoffs are coming to PSD
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
Any more details on SAS layoffs?
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.
Who is a News & Observer subscriber??
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.
Could SAS have done more for us?
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?
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!!
Anyone hear of layoffs coming to prep for IPO?
It seems that the cuts are around the corner?
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.
Oh just sell us FFS……….
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
We're safe...for now
Don't get Hocked...
Pray that you do not get acquired by Broadcom....60% of you will no longer be there....
Has anyone heard anything at all?
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
More SAS cuts today - across multiple divisions.
SAS making layoffs in some work groups but continues to hire
"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
How many people have been laid off so far due to the pandemic?
Unhappy SAS customer
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
SAS Lays off Childcare Staff
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
SAS lays people off
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
SAS 2019 Job Cuts
What's the update? How many and where? Buyouts? Voluntary?
Some numbers on SAS "layoffs"
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
Yes, No Layoffs but Below Market Salaries @ SAS
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
