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

    Pros

    Work life balance is a huge plus especially with kids that are active in school and sports. My department is always trying to make ourselves better by learning new technology and revising our processes. I have a great Director that cares and also challenges us.

    Cons

    Executive leadership seems to be too disconnected. There is a lot of bullying when it comes to new projects and people want to do something within a week but don't understand all of the backend work that goes into setting things up properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VP's, Directors and even some managers need to be more engaged with their teams. Skp level meetings would help root out the problem areas and let upper management know what is really going on. I'm lucky to be on a team that has great leadership but I hear horror stories from other departments.

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

    Pros

    Very fast paced, always innovating and investing in technology. The IS department has the best people you'll want to work with.

    Cons

    Management is detached from the employees. C level execs in North America have a bullying attitude at times and manage/lead by intimidation. Sage as a global enterprise is a HUGE mess with just about everything being separate, specially management, between operating companies in different countries which makes it impossible to implement enterprise projects, with the exception of C-execs pet projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect - create a single, global operations group.

    I worked at Sage North America full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The thing I liked best about working at Sage was the focus they place on the customer. The people are fantastic to work with. In my 10 years working there I loved what I was doing and who I was doing it with. I was sad to leave.

    Cons

    Lots of re-orgs, layoffs and management changes made it stressful and difficult to be successful.

    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.
