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

    Pros

    I have truly loved my time at Sage. They do their best to put their associates first and find development opportunities for them. My team is like a family to me and I feel very thankful to be part of Sage as it continues to grow.

    Cons

    As the company gets bigger, it's always going to be hard to keep a consistent message from the Home Office to the properties in the field but compared to other places I've worked, I think there's better communication and better understanding of what's needed. Sometimes, with larger organizations the corporate office can be disconnected from the real issues in the field but I think Sage is at a good size in that regard. Not too big but also not too small.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sight of all these wonderful initiatives and priorities as the company continues to grow!

    Pros

    I would recommend to anyone especially someone interested in possible relocation and growing within a company.

    Cons

    Working at a newer hotel within the Sage portfolio so it is still defining the culture but as development continues, it has been a great collaboration between the property and corporate.

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

    Pros

    Career advancement opportunities, decent compensation in an industry that is racing to the bottom, accesible knowledge and training, and exciting future for the company. If you can work with ambiguity and are excited to be a part of a rapidly growing company with a touch of growing pains the experience is great

    Cons

    Lack of connection to the actual challenges staff go through every day, great vision for the future but due to rapid growth company sometimes struggles to maintain simple processes, communication is not very good with too ideas without much action. If you are not an energetic learner and a self-starter you will not be happy or find much actual guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on boarding, give associates clear direction on what’s expected of them, and improve the technology and support we have at he property level before making huge changes hay don’t help anyone outside of the corporate office.

    Pros

    We had amazing experiences working for the company. GREAT BENEFITS!!!

    Cons

    The hotel i worked for the mangers were very unprofessional and underhanded. I don't feel that we were properly compensated for all the hard work we had done since the hotel was in construction when we started.

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

    Pros

    This company is clearly growing and creating many fantastic hospitality venues with many employee opportunities for employees in the operations areas. There are many great people who work here who are good to work for.

    Cons

    Leadership of the company is willing to sacrifice talent for profits; there is definitely a network and you are either in or out. A few years ago they moved away from their core values and dismantled the HR team so don't expect much help there. Pay was low for many compared to the rest of the world, though a few select folks were well compensated.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep growing and providing excellence, treat all people better and make your messages transparent prior to having a negative impact on others.

    Very friendly staff, awesome downtown location, and potential to move up within the company

    I worked at Sage Hospitality full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I think the overall culture of Sage is a positive one. They at least talk a lot about development and leadership. Benefits are decent for the hospitality industry. They have some really fantastic properties in their portfolio and there are lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    It really depends on property-specific management. Having worked at two different Sage hotels, I had a great management at one, with lots of support. The other, however, I felt like management was only interested in promoting themselves within the greater corporate structure, even if it meant throwing their subordinates under the bus.
