    The worst property and management experience of my career

    Pros

    They renovate properties in a timely fashion. Plenty of reporting processes in place to gage your trends

    Cons

    No respectible leadership. No growth potential. There is in fighting between owners and management

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Those who are loyal to them will move forward in the ranks relatively fast. Great for beefing up your resume...

    Cons

    Pay is poor. The property's bottom line is more important. Management seems to think that their employees don't notice the below average pay and unacceptable scheduling (admittedly, this may be more due to the industry). Plenty of promises that are never kept. 3-6% increase in pay annually.. Training is very sub par as they are more interested in minimizing cost to enhance management appeal to corporate. Although I appreciate the managements friendly demeanor, it is not an acceptable replacement for overworking employees and spreading them far too thin.

    Advice to Management

    Dont complain about turnover if your spreading your employees too thin and paying them too little. If Sage was willing to pay reasonably and take the time to schedule fairly, then it wouldn't be such a bad of a place to work. ADVICE TO APPLICANTS: Ask for what you need going in, otherwise your priorities will be overlooked down the road. Better you pass up the job if it does not fit your criteria now, than hope that management will actually stand up for you later...

    I worked at Sage Hospitality part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow employees, tips are high in general, free food

    Cons

    Completely disjointed and unorganized management, little appreciation for what employees do, will work you to the bone if you let them.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with your employees and treat them like people. Don't focus solely on the bottom line.

    I worked at Sage Hospitality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Typical pro's of hospitality: discounts on food and lodging

    Cons

    Very low pay scale, management in constant turmoil, lack of any good leadership leading to much misbehavior from management on site.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, treat them better, offer more than just the typical hospitality perks and bring wages into the current brackets of pay for the industry.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employment benefits are industry standard

    Cons

    Corporate knows where they want to lead their company, but doesn't spend the extra money to hire qualified employees to lead them there. Compensation and advancement is directly dependent on personality acceptance within each hotel property on up to the corporate offices... if you make it there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified employees who have the experience and knowledge to implement training tools that nurture employees to great levels, instead of advancing cute smiles with no brains or drive.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time

    Pros

    Company works in a "fun" vertical, they have good team building events, and most of the people there are nice and genuinely care

    Cons

    Leadership, especially in the technical areas, is very weak. Not good communicators, lack skills necessary to properly manage employees and build a team, and has very shallow technical acumen, resulting in poor decision making and heavy reliance on external consultants. Poorly run organization overall. Lastly, tech management did not understand how to successfully build nor operate a technical infrastructure, resulting in the business not funding infrastructure, which caused massive instability and a company relying on 10 year old technology to provide services to its user base.

    I worked at Sage Hospitality full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Range of properties provide opportunities for individuals growing their career and willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Inconsistent communication between corporate personnel and property management. A much higher degree of politically based promotion than I've experienced with any other corporation I have been involved with. this, unfortunately, results in people who are not qualified being in key decision making positions incorporating the 'cya' modis operandi.

    Advice to Management

    Make the commitment to hire and promote managerial personnel, both property and corporate level, based on objective criteria, knowledge and skill, as opposed to personal relationships. Commit to clear, honest, straight forward communication. Then breathe both in and throughout the organization.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    local icon, heavily supported by locals. most staff members good people, still greeted with enthusiasm and affection when I come in.

    Cons

    Nepotism raises its ugly head. Favoritism is rampant. Written warnings are fabricated. Management has a recurring habit of getting rid of anyone they feel is threatening their position. Upper management has no clue how to handle a restaurant (hotel) so they can't be bothered with the truth as they don't know what to do with it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the supervisors & the majority of staff. Open your mind to something besides the comfortable black and white rules in front of you. Why is it supervisors last less than a year, even though they're doing a GREAT job? To restaurant management and the liars on staff: one day this will all come back to bite you.
