    Pros

    Great work environment that values employees and encourages individual contributions at all levels.
    There is an overall confidence and belief in the company's vision and product offerings that generates a positive atmosphere.

    I like that you don't have to wait a long time for benefits to kick in and the 21 days of Paid Time Off in your first year shows a serious commitment to work-life balance.

    In regards to Communication, I give very high marks as well. Frequent "All In" Meetings and Sage Central are a couple of examples of how well the Organization communicates, from Pascal and the ELT all the way down to local news items and bulletins.

    Cons

    Not much to vent about really.
    I think as the labor market in certain areas (specifically in the Technical space) continues to tighten, Sage needs to try to stay more competitive in salaries - both when trying to get top talent in the door as well as when trying to keep top performers from leaving

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. The company does recognize outstanding work

    Cons

    Business model needs improvement. Product needs more innovation and options. Also average compensation for salaries. Company does not meet fair market value for positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should adhere to company values and communicate more effectively with teams.

    Pros

    Management at this office really cares about employees as people. Lots of free food during busy times. Managers do get off site training.

    Cons

    Corp management wants every business unit the same so even tho this office is giving the best service it is being lowered to the other offices level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the excellent work being done at this office.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Lawrenceville, GA

    I worked at Sage North America for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun company to work for, trying to do great things in the accounting software space.
    Great relaxed and collaborative office environment. There are some very smart people in the company, if you take the time to seek them out. Learned something new every day, and had the opportunity to be involved in exciting new projects. Huge variety of work that means you'll never get bored.
    Great benefits offered to all permanent employees.

    Cons

    Workload can be overwhelming at times based on numerous responsibilities and concurrent deadlines. Available resources varied dramatically by department / division. There's a strong desire to succeed at new initiatives but sometimes the company gets in it's own way and places barriers in the way to moving the needle. The red tape continues to increase and potentially strangle innovation. Strong focus on short-term rather than a long term win. Danger of becoming R&D led rather than market / Product Management focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Confront the brutal facts" and listen to the market / customer needs. Create the strategy and then commit to execute against it with confidence and resources.
