      This a good company to work for a little while but don’t stay too long. I’m only here until I can leave.

      Pros

      Amazing health care benefits (genuinely can’t knock them for that) Coworkers on the same level are sometimes supportive of each other Good mission If you’re mid-upper management and you have kids, this will be a nice place to stay for while because you get reasonable flexibility, good benefits, and upper management often delegates stressful tasks to mid-low employees. If you’re fresh out of college, stay a year, get some experience, and leave because the trajectory for upward movement is gone.

      Cons

      The “kind” culture is really passive aggressive Promotions don’t always make sense/kiss ups get moved up Middle management sucks Lack of work/life balance Low-mid level employees have low pay Little upward mobility Lack of diversity SAGE Perform to track feedback feels superficial and borderline like a tattletale system that employees are forced to use 401k profit sharing instead of matching

      Great place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I really enjoyed my time working at SAGE, unfortunately Covid eliminations cut that short. The benefits there are amazing, the open office space was refreshing and clean, the people, including management, were friendly.

      Cons

      Really top heavy in management. Directors reporting to Sr. Dir who report to Assoc. VP reporting to VP then Sr. VP to C-Level. Not to mention a Chief Information Officer AND a Chief Technology Officer over IT. Overkill & costly It's hard to get promoted at lower levels in IT and the amount of women is sadly dwindling.

      Pros

      Diversity is a priority. People are great. Respected by customers.

      Cons

      Extreme micromanagement. The culture of micro-management becomes normalized after a while, but it still feels very stressful and de-motivating.

      Pros

      not a work reason, but they showed they "cared" for their employees by providing food trucks and having cool holiday parties for their employees

      Cons

      constantly overworked, underpaid, office experience wasn't the best, minimal opportunity for growth.
