    Good People, Upper level management issues

    I worked at Sage ACT!

    Pros

    People are friendly and there is a real sense of team
    Flexible work environment (flex hours, work from home, etc.)
    Opportunities for learning exist if you take advantage of them.
    BIG company feel for those that like it.

    Cons

    Upper Management does not interact with employees frequently
    Mid-level managers often have their hands tied by budget constraints.
    Budgeting and funding of projects in the company defies logic.
    Collaborating across campuses and products is pratically non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To provide the "excellent customer experience" that you talk so much about you are going to have to sacrifice some $$ and time.

    Pros

    They have very talented people.

    Cons

    You have to find out how to impress with and with what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do true 360 reviews instead of pretending.

    Pros

    Some of the people, it's a paying job, good training for other industry jobs

    Cons

    There's a plan in place but we don't follow it, the company seems to be run at the whim of certain people who can convince upper management their idea is better than the last one; very dysfunctional, unprofessional, and rife with secret alliances.

    Lack of resources, too many projects, and stratification of resources in place breeds no respect among them. No recognition for people who work hard unless you're in a select group. No company camaraderie.

    Waste of time surveys gather information with which nothing is done.

    For many people, it's just a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sage won't keep us on the teet forever. If we don't deliver competitive product consistently we will be sold or worse shut down. It's simple math -- revenue must exceed burn rate. We can compete if you focus (and don't allow yourself to be distracted by the latest shiny object) and allow people to do their jobs.

    Tremendous opportunity befuddled by executive management incompetence

    Pros

    International company with diverse and interesting work cultures. Location flexibility and ability to change division with relative ease. Good long term prospects.

    Cons

    Lack of enterprise and innovation from senior management. Employee initiative befuddled by beurocracy. New group CEO will hopefully mean a new regional CEO for north america

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire. You are strangling opportunity, enterprise and are a discredit to your employees, partners and customers. New regional CEO and senior executive team required asap. CEO, President of SBS, CFO, CTO and EVP of market strategy are utterly out of their depth

    Pros

    Can call in sick, benefits, RRSP matching and a clean office. Fast internet access for surfing and video.

    Cons

    Confusing, layoffs, dated products, management is hahahahaaaaa hhahahaa very funny (not really). The more they change the management the same it stays. How is it possible that they keep finding people like this and no improvement. Nepotism and favouritism is settled here from the old management and now they are off to destroy other companies hahaha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best job you ever had for your qualities - fair is fair. Just dont get in my way please.
