    Nice place to work, good pay. Little things that can be a nuisance.

    Pros

    The pay is good. In a sales position the commission is great if you can do a good job. It's not that difficult of a job.

    Cons

    Management hasn't done very good in certain areas. For example we work at a call centre, yet I couldn't find an accurate and centralized reference sheet for extensions. Someone explain how that can be?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have an accurate and consistent reference sheet for extensions. We work in a call centre why is there not one, and if there is why doesn't anyone know about it?

    Pros

    Sage has great benefits and the people are really great to work with. The environment is great too. The pay is ok.

    Cons

    If you want to move ahead, it's important to allign yourself with strategic employees. The company is very unstable at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay raises should be according to performance, company results and inflation.

    Part of a large organisation, but felt like it was a start-up. Confusing with no real structure

    Former Employee - Manager in Winnersh, England (UK)

    I worked at Sage UK Ltd. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The nature of the work is interesting if you want to get into the small-medium size enterprise market and ERP solutions. Some chance of international travel as well. Benefits if you are in management are good and rather flat hierarchy. Acts like an independent company from the main Group, however has close ties to its' company in France and most of the work is performed with the support of France.

    Cons

    Most of the consultants are new and think they know everything. The structure and practices have been very confusing. It felt like at times that no one knew what they wanted to do when they grew up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a far reaching global organisation. Look around the middle-management tier and ensure that a clear structure is implemented with clear roles & responsibilities.

    Pros

    -good benefits
    -start with 3 weeks vacation
    - great coworkers

    Cons

    Management can be incompetent. They often make changes and confuse customers. They seem to be constantly following the lead of their largest competitor (they did it so we should).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a clear long term strategy and stick to it. Stop trying things out and then reverting back when you encounter backlash. Just use common sense!
