    Benefits, great people. Overall, and from my perspective based on my professional interactions, the leadership is solid and committed for the long haul.


    Sometimes SAGE managers adhere to very strict communication policies. They say there's an open door policy, but at times it feels like they expect everyone to "stay at their level" and communication can be stifled. Because SAGE is a smaller company, opportunities for advancement are generally few and far between. Depending on the job, you may have to change companies to obtain advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees have a way to share opinions. And if there is a more open forum, definitely act on the feedback given.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at SAGE Publications in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have previously applied and interviewed for this position. The previous experience was sub par considering all of the human resource representatives that were reviewing my application disappeared and no longer worked there during the days that followed.

    The second interview included a phone interview and subsequent face to face interview including two hiring managers. Monday I received a friendly email confirming the date, time, and place of my interview the following day.

    I arrived 15 minutes early to find there was a scheduling conflict. Essentially, the manager stated I was an hour late when in fact I was 15 min early. The manager exclaimed that the window to interview me was now a few minutes. There were a few sales related questions and about my computer knowledge. I did not meet with the manager's counterpart as was mentioned before. Also, I did not receive an online assessment, nor speak to the HR rep about my eligibility to work there.
