An ideal environment for new ideas
Everyone is aware, what a great workplace SAS is. But, the real value we find in the culture isn't derived from company perks. The SAS environment in India and the SAS culture serves to remove obstacles to creativity and develop innovative products that keep the company on the leading edge. The opportunity to create new solutions to customer problems and the knowledge that we are making a major contribution to the company's success keeps us totally energized.
Apart from the investment in generous benefits and amenities for its employees, SAS is recognized in the industry, as the highest investor of its revenues (24%) into research and development - significantly higher than the average investment of large software companies to support new development initiatives.
