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.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Sage North America in November 2014.Interview Details
A recruiter contacted me via LinkedIn about a position at Sage NA with a detailed description. After communicating back my interest in the position we spoke briefly on the telephone and went over my goals and I told him about some of the projects that I have been working on. He then contacted a Sr. Talent Acquisitions member who later contacted me via telephone to discuss the projects that I have worked on in slightly more detail. He seemed to have some technical training and asked some minor technical questions regarding the projects. Shortly after, I received a c# questionnaire that was nearly identical to some college level intro level programming course assignments. Within 3 days I was asked to do an in person interview with the team manager, dev ops manager, and two Sr. level Software Engineers. First I met with the software engineers. First, they reviewed a couple of things on my assessment to see if I recognized any things I could have done differently. Then they asked me a high level implementation question and had me white board a solution. There was a lot of low key discussion. They were mainly looking for problem solving skills and how I would go about implementing a resolution to a random problem. They never made me feel uncomfortable. It was very collaborative. I could ask questions, they would ask questions and they assessed how I went about it.
Then I met with the DevOps manager and Team Manager who reviewed my interests, skills, goals, projects, and experience in agile processes. The interview ended with a tour of the facility.Interview Questions
