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

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

    Pros

    It beats working at Walmart

    Cons

    Typical manipulation within American bureaucracy. The top level reap rewards whilst the laymen are stripped of quality of life and living and made to believe a measly compensation is considered "competitive".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top level - shame on you for your blatant striping of dignity and quality of life through viable employment of your workers. Middle management - shame on you for settling on your mediocre bribes and promises, you are still taking advantage of the hardest workers who provide the bread and butter of your industry.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time for 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.
