I have been working at Sage full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great people and team environment. They are willing to adapt new technologies to grow their software. Agile development means minimal time writing documents and planning features.

Cons

There is a fair amount of legacy code to maintain. The agile development process has its drawbacks as the minimal time allocated to planning typically means parts are unaccounted for in the estimation process; the implementation of any unaccounted parts is expected to be absorbed by the engineer, with no slack given on the schedule. This leads to long hours as developers catch up with unplanned work.

Advice to Management

Don't change things for the sake of change. Actually have a reason for the change and a predictable and positive outcome. Also consult the people who will be affected by the change. For example, don't lower cube walls for developers just because you feel it makes people more productive.

Give engineers more freedom in their work-life balance choices (such as working at home) and more freedom to make technical decisions.

    Pros

    very flexible as a remote sales rep, potential for good pay if you don't mind screwing people over, great product offerings

    Cons

    no leadership, constant turnover and internal job reassignments makes it impossible to find resolution when issues arise. Focus is 100% on new business and they could care less if the client leaves tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach: Extraordinary customer experience should be more then just a passing slogan. Try caring about the client and supporting the employees that do as well instead of penalizing them for not bringing in more new and disgruntled customers.
