    Pros

    Great company that is stable with good pay and benefits for full time employees, so I heard. They offer permanent positions to successful sales reps.

    Cons

    Management shows favoritism and you may feel that they require more than they are willing to give.

    Financially secure

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Sage North America

    Pros

    I immediately felt secure financially. I felt that the benefits were excellent as well. I enjoyed the training, and I enjoyed my co-workers.

    Cons

    Telesales role can be a role with quick burn out rates. Because I was there for 10 years, I was tired and ready to move on, so unfortunately did not leave with the positive attitude that i began with in 2003.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would say work-life balance would be something to focus on for management. I felt that i was secure and that Sage treated their employees well financially, but I typically felt overworked and exhausted when i got home. This was offset by the benefits and the compensation (for me, at least). In hindsight, it is hard to put a price on family and the ability to have energy to care for your family after leaving an 8 hour day with a company that is also helping you to provide for that family. catch 22.

    Pros

    Management at this office really cares about employees as people. Lots of free food during busy times. Managers do get off site training.

    Cons

    Corp management wants every business unit the same so even tho this office is giving the best service it is being lowered to the other offices level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the excellent work being done at this office.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Lawrenceville, GA

    I worked at Sage North America (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun company to work for, trying to do great things in the accounting software space.
    Great relaxed and collaborative office environment. There are some very smart people in the company, if you take the time to seek them out. Learned something new every day, and had the opportunity to be involved in exciting new projects. Huge variety of work that means you'll never get bored.
    Great benefits offered to all permanent employees.

    Cons

    Workload can be overwhelming at times based on numerous responsibilities and concurrent deadlines. Available resources varied dramatically by department / division. There's a strong desire to succeed at new initiatives but sometimes the company gets in it's own way and places barriers in the way to moving the needle. The red tape continues to increase and potentially strangle innovation. Strong focus on short-term rather than a long term win. Danger of becoming R&D led rather than market / Product Management focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Confront the brutal facts" and listen to the market / customer needs. Create the strategy and then commit to execute against it with confidence and resources.
