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

Pros

Global company with strengths in Europe
Hard working, bright employees
Great place to redefine self or change career trajectory
Investment in employee engagement
Truly care about customers and partners
Sharing or best practices globally and investment in employee training

Cons

You need to know the right people and have a champion
Salary is on the lower range of the comp ranges
Historically slow to divest dying products/lines of businesses
R&D innovation and execution is weak
Tightly managed budgets - little room for risks in spend

Advice to Management

Keep moving through your transitions, and keep growing internal staff at all levels. LISTEN to your employees - they will make or break you. Increase your R&D and PM/PMM talent, and invest not in next, but in after next. Keep up with the cross-pollination globally, best practice forums, and training.

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance, relaxed atmosphere
    - Decent amount of vacation
    - Working with a few, intelligent co-workers

    Cons

    - Like most all large corporations, it is very top heavy
    - Very little recognition for those who put their head down and work, but those who brown-nose and know how to talk will receive it
    - Processes are very slow moving and mostly not defined
    - People have large budgets and spend a lot of money, yet they do not give their hard-working employees raises
    - Too many delegators and not enough do-ers
    - New employees coming in think they can change things or do things their way, but they will quickly find out it doesn't work that way
    - Conversely, lots of old-timers who have been there for decades and averse to change
    - Too many people using buzz words, hold lots of meetings, but nothing comes of it
    - Random lay-offs

    Advice to Management

    - Listen and recognize your best workers
