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

    Pros

    Food for lunch and dinner during 30 minute break.
    Opportunity to transfer departments and location, if applicable,
    Opportunity for overtime and doubletime when needed.
    Vision and dental is free and included for full time benefits.
    Full time benefits kick in 90 days.

    Cons

    Medical insurance needs to be better and would be great if benefits and PTO would start after 90 days.
    Seniority schedule is only effective when department is NOT understaffed.
     Health insurance is 80/20
    During "slow season" after holidays, staff hours are reduced drastically. Only top two seniority gets 40 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire diverse and create a healthy environment. Some managers encountered that quit were only praising their "favorites" and didn't recognize hard working people. Make sure HR staff is inviting and not hostile. Renaissance Blackstone DOES not carry out Sage's core values and culture. Some upper management are hostile.

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

    Pros

    The company offers a commuter bus pass.

    Cons

    Private company that struggles to hold its managers accountable. Managers have not checked in with direct reports for the year regarding yearly goals or professional growth. Management needs to lead, challenge and inspire their workers.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your direct reports = ensure they are being engaged, challenged and growing as a professional in a positive direction.

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

    Pros

    Great managers, co-workers and resources available for success at work.

    Cons

    Below living wage pay, high turnover with co-workers (because of low pay most likely).

    Advice to Management

    The management says they value employees, however the number one way to actually prove it is with compensation. High turnover rates don't look good for a company. You've built a good company culture, you're making the revenue, but it seems like you're taking advantage of your employees and making them seem very easily replaceable. The turnover resembles a fast-food restaurant and it's easy to tell by looking and analysing the revenue sheets that more money could be going to "valued employees." I talk a lot with my co-workers and managers and a lot of them say they are broke or living pay check to pay check.

    Pros

    Good benefits. They do great things for the community.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are unethical. They are all over the board. They seem to act very arrogant at times.

    Advice to Management

    There are some really good managers that work there, and some really bad choices. Take some time to weed out the bad ones. Hold them accountable.

    There a perks to the job. Best part was the amazing team I worked with.

    Cons

    Low pay. The benefits and are okay but nothing spectacular.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits and with many locations nation wide is great for relocating. Most people are very friendly and opportunity to move up is possible if one is motivated enough

    Cons

    Low pay and work place discourages co worker socialization aka team building. Back to the low pay everyone seems to look out for number one instead of taking care of the people that do the grunt work so turn over rate is high.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay to be more competitive for easier hiring and better applicants.

    Pros

    I work at the front desk so it is fun the different challenges that present themselves everyday. Each guest is a new opportunity to get to know a new person and learn about their experiences. If you work hard and are dedicated it is possible to move through the ranks at a pretty decent pace.

    Cons

    The pay is sub par for the hours that are required in hospitality. If you do not have friends or family that have 9-5 jobs it would not be bad. Management is a mixed bag. At a certain point in your career it feels like they put the carrot in front of your face and give you a lot more responsibility with no more pay or incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you are going to do.

    Only enjoyable part about working in a hotel with awful guests are the coworkers.

    Cons

    Lack of personal and professional growth working in hospitality unless your managing. Gives no opportunity for hourly employees to move up
