    I worked at Sage Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. Vince is the most generous person who has a huge passion for his company and it shows. It's a company that you can be proud to work for because the products make a difference and the company gives back. Great place if you're looking for an hourly job and don't want to do much more.

    Cons

    Newer President, Scott, is rude and only speaks to those who matter. I agree that it's not female friendly and really not minority friendly if you want to be anywhere outside of the shop floor. You MUST know someone to get ahead and must suck up to the right people once you get in the door. Brains are not valued nearly as much as the right connections on the inside.

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Really know what you're talking about and learn your jobs. If you got there due to a family member or high school buddy, take the time to really learn your job and then mentor others. Stop hiring people because you know their dad - -- start looking for real professional talent.
