Current Employee - Software Engineer
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Sage full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good people.
Decent pay, a little below the average though.
Interesting projects.
Casual dress code.

Cons

Unrealistic deadlines.
Scrum masters push for unrealistic assumptions to bring down estimates so that it appears deadlines will be met.
Too much push to hit deadlines not enough understanding that good code takes time.
No time given to learn new technologies.
Nonexistent requirements.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people doing the work. If they say it's not possible in the time given then it isn't possible, and you need to think about moving the timeline or slimming down features.

    I worked at Sage as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule was very loose because all staff were telecommuting. I had no one in my department at the actual location where I was at.

    Cons

    I had no one in my department at the actual location where I was at.

    Advice to Management

    I was a temporary employee that basically took the brunt of my department because I was expendable. They do not budget well enough to have enough staff in my department Sage University. There needs to be a few more employees in the department to make things go smoothly.
