    Pros

    Sage has a great culture, which is being strengthened by the recent acquisition by Stryker. Senior management remains engaged with employees from top to bottom. Pay and compensation is competitive if not superior to other companies in the area.

    Cons

    The company really needs to expand its facility. It's already bursting at the seams and there is almost nowhere to park.

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

    Pros

    Stryker and Sage have the same culture. They care about the employees. They do the right thing. Although there is change, a lot of it is for the better!

    Cons

    A lot more people involved in decisions. More approvals needed now that we are part of a 26,000 person company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it personal. Don't let us become just a number. Try to maintain the small family owned company feel. Keep giving back to our community.

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

    Pros

    Sage was a great company to work for...until Stryker bought them.

    Cons

    Supposedly, nothing was going to change. Now all the people who were worth a lot more than they were being paid are leaving, people that have been there for 20+ years are "retiring," and the culture is going out the window. The things that made Sage what it is, are slowly disappearing. Now they are also getting rid of the softball field which is used by NISRA for the Special Olympics Softball Team. All for more parking that is not even necessary at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Do not tell people that nothing is changing. If you truly believe that nothing is changing, and it is business as usual, you are blind to what is actually happening at your company. Follow the example of the good people and get out before they "re-evaluate your position."
