Sage – Why Work For Us?


We energize the success of businesses and communities around the world through the imagination of our people and smart technology. 

Like many of the businesses we serve, Sage began as an entrepreneur’s dream. That was 35 years ago, and the values we established then continue to guide us today. In a world where only the voices of the biggest are heard, we will always fight to hear and amplify the voices of business builders everywhere. Today over 13000 colleagues now support millions of business builders across 23 countries as they power the global economy.

It is these business builders who are the drivers of prosperity and it’s our privilege and honour to serve them. We take real pride from how many of our customers have flourished and, that our products have grown with them as they moved from start-up to successful, international businesses.

Our mission is to champion small and medium business, and the business builders that grow them. Sage is the world market leader for integrated accounting, payroll, and payments systems, supporting the ambitions of business builders worldwide.

We serve business builders. We care about their passion. We celebrate the people we serve. We recognize and honor their spirit, sacrifice, dedication, and the difference they make worldwide.

Our business builders are the visionaries who fuel the world economy—by providing them a new generation of software to manage everything from money to people. We’re reimagining business for our thriving community of accountants, partners, developers, and entrepreneurs. Our millions of customers will always be the heart of why we’re here.

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I got a call from a recruiter to discuss a software development manager role. After answering some questions about my previous experience as a developer and manager, the recruiter asked me what wage I was looking to make. I replied, "Market rate, because I want what's both fair to the company and employee." The recruiter immediately started playing down their ability to compensate market rate, explaining that the position would like be at least $20k less. I had not even mentioned a number at this point, and the job listing was for an experienced professional in this role. I replied that there is more to compensation besides base salary and I'd need to see the company culture and entire compensation package. I did not get a call back. When I meet with other professional colleges after work, I mention this story as a way to get laughs. Sage is hilariously attempting to attract experienced 'talent' by giving the lowest bid, and then hoping someone is desperate enough to take it. I now know why all the ratings for Sage on Glassdoor are so low.
