    Pros

    Fast Growing, awesome coworkers, full cafeteria, decent benefits, and solid upper management. Ive been here for a few years and all in all it has been my favorite Portland job.

    Cons

    I have bumped heads with a few of their policies but it isn't anything out of the ordinary for restaurants. Dont expect special treatment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose supervisors a little more carefully.

    Pros

    In a large market there are advancement opportunities. And in the industry one of the standard perks is the reduced room rates at properties across the company.

    Cons

    As with any job in the hospitality industry your work schedule is determined by factors outside of your control. There are "blackout" dates based on occupancy when you can't take leave or vacation. Once you understand and accept that it's okay.

    Pros

    Networking, large company good way to grow if your a hard worker and understand how to use it. Good befits, average Pay

    Cons

    Just like with the pros, its a big company. It is very easy to get lost in the pack you have to fight for it. Systems are out dated limited budget for new tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training for new hire's. Valuing current employees better, I hit my two year mark and no one said anything.

    Pros

    Sage's culture is defined and driven by a set of well-communicated values but mostly by Walter Isenberg, the CEO. Walter is legendary for being a good human being, for caring about people and for understanding that talent is everything in a service business. He has hired other leaders who understand this. They apply best practices when it comes to talent management and it shows.

    Cons

    Sage's challenge is to invest in the necessary infrastructure - technology and operations and staffing - to support their growth and ensure the effectiveness of their people. Ensuring that all properties managed by them are run with the same values, the same employee experience and with the same quality of operational execution is also a big challenge, just like all hotel and restaurant management companies.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * growing company
    * innovated ideas
    * opportunities in certain positions for advancement

    Cons

    * The HR Department has tools to use for managers, however, at the hotels they are not implemented. It depends on the GM of the hotel.

    * Hiring of managers is not fair, it's based on who you know. The GM looks at hiring the least expensive person to the job versus the most talent & experienced person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favoritism. Give raises to your management staff. It was over 5 years until receiving a raise that was very minimal.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sage works hard to make sure we have a great team to work with and good pay and benefits. The hotel needs some investment but I get that is the owner's responsibility, not Sage's. I like working for a company that gets it even if it is sometimes hard to deliver. They care. Our hotel is being renovated which is nice. Everything in the guest rooms is new. Sage has sent in a lot of task force people to help us with the renovation so it is like being in a big family.

    Cons

    We are the only Sage hotel in the state so we dont get the benefit of working with other Sage hotels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with renovations and such in the future.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Active, growing company. Really cares about it's clients and giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Fairly disorganized for such a large company. Could be a little more focus on taking care of it's employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to communicate with the lower levels. It helps make everyone's job easier and helps with a sense of community.

    Can get "political" - but isn't everywhere at times?
