Great role to learn and grown alongside seasoned sales representative. You must make sure that you are the one most worried about your mobility and ability to move on from this role.
Depending on your manager this could be a job that is short term, in and out. No real development plan for Associates to be retained.

Clean building, good amount of nice people . Clean bathrooms , nice cafeteria and what not , had a nice gym but you had to be hired on for that........
Being a a temp : impossible to be hired on...., if machines are down you are thrown out and not allowed to work so hired on people have work which is ridiculous it’s just because the multi billion dollar company doesn’t want to help pay extra for people they are using like trash for work. Hmmm.. also you get no benefits obvouiusly ... you aren’t allowed to participate in any activities because you have to be hired on. Good amount of people look down on you because you are a temp and are talked down to. They say they care about you and you working but they honestly don’t because they are using you for when that one hired on co worker calls off on Good Friday that is lazy so you can work then guess what you don’t work the next week.. did I mention that you are told you are fulltime but really a part time if nothing employee?? Do not waste your time working here because guess what ... you will never work and be able to save any money. This is a joke .1

Before I proceed, I am not one that write reviews but I also appreciate a good experience. This is a good company to work for. I cannot speak for each department but the QC lab was a fun group. The QC supervisor and QC leads were great communicators and expects the best from its team (rightfully so). The QC lab techs all worked together to get their jobs done. Yes, as with every team we have different personality types, so shut up and isn't that the case in every work of life. However I am impressed on how the team blended together to get each task accomplished. This would have being a good place to name drop some work heroes I personally knew but it won't be fair for those I didn't work with because I was there for a short time. All in all great staff, easy going and expects excellence which is all you can ask for.
Like I mentioned above, I cannot speak for the company as a whole but I enjoyed the few months in the QC lab and maybe i wasn't there long enough to see loop holes. Any cons I might have seen are all fixable and might have being fixed while I was there. (Btw had nothing to do with me, it's all a team effort, so shut up!)

The Sage culture is awesome! From the top level down, the main focus is on people and relationships. The President as well as the Chairman of the Board knows everyone's name, they both have an open door policy, and they both truly care about each & every person that walks through the door. They are very generous, very caring and have a true passion to help people succeed...not only in business, but in life. Good health is strongly encouraged. To support that, Sage has a 24 hour fitness center and gym, fitness classes, a Wellness Center staffed with a nurse practitioner and a doctor, a physical therapist, and an occupational therapist. Family values and strong ethics are also encouraged. "Always take the high road" is the way of doing business here. People are happy to come to work, feel good about what they do and feel valued to be a part of Sage.
It's hard to stay humble and not brag about Sage when talking to family, friends and neighbors.

On-site fitness center and wellness center Very community oriented organization--they sponsor a lot of local events and have many ties to the community Strong history with good products that really solve healthcare problems Sales training process is very strong Good benefits--including better paternal leave benefits Vince Foglia (company founder) left an extremely strong legacy
Sage Products was acquired by Stryker Medical in 2016 and many of its great qualities were starting to disintegrate as time went on. Location is far out from the Chicago market, so attracting/retaining top talent is challenging Salaries are below average Company was very hesitant to allow remote working options during tenure (only a few exceptions) High-level turnover since the acquisition by Stryker Develop people to perform a role well but do not offer opportunities to grow (limited within Sage) Suffered a recall in late 2017 that took time to recover from Their interview process can be extremely lengthy (phone interview, 3 on-site "interviews"). I understand why they do it, but it can be extremely intimidating at times.

This company's growth has been amazing and continues to be impressive. Leadership is always focused on how changes will impact things at the sales rep level because the executive leadership is made up of people that have all been in sales. The company has always developed top quality products that help solve problems that people in healthcare are motivated to fix so the products are very fun to sell. As a salesperson, it is an extremely challenging job but very rewarding. Sales incentive trips are amazing for both reps and spouses. The compensation for sales reps is exceptional and goals are realistic for anyone willing to put the work in. The company's growth has led to a variety of promotional opportunities for the best quality individuals in all departments including the sales force.
Those who are unwilling to re-locate, will have significantly less opportunities for promotions. There are still opportunities but there are far more options available for those willing to move.

Benefits are very good. Vince is the most generous person who has a huge passion for his company and it shows. It's a company that you can be proud to work for because the products make a difference and the company gives back. Great place if you're looking for an hourly job and don't want to do much more.
Newer President, Scott, is rude and only speaks to those who matter. I agree that it's not female friendly and really not minority friendly if you want to be anywhere outside of the shop floor. You MUST know someone to get ahead and must suck up to the right people once you get in the door. Brains are not valued nearly as much as the right connections on the inside.2

This is a company that invests into its people, and there are not many companies that do that anymore. That's why the culture here is so strong, because of the top talent they bring in, as well as the well natured spirit of the people here. There is always room for growth and opportunity and Sage will ensure that if you are looking to move onward and upward, that they will do what it takes to get you there, whether it's training, going back to school, seminars, professional workshops, or industry related conferences/events. Sage will support its people to achieve whatever it is they are looking for. Furthermore, Sage's facility has an onsite clinic for employees and their families, a fitness center and gym, company sponsored events through their Exuberance Committee; there is so much this company offers to those that provide their service here everyday.
The only con is the vacation time they give during your first year of employment. Other than that, there are no cons.

Good place to work, co-worker seems friendly
Bad management and also have no empathy, when at first they would treat you nicely and being friendly with you, they would make you “feel welcome” but with time goes on, when a mistake is made, they would harass and use a lot of criticism to you, pushing them, causing the behavior to change. They don’t seem to take their job seriously, in fact they were involved in 6 FDA recalls regarding to the healthcare products. If it happens once, and they can fix it, no problem, but if they are 6 recalls in a number of years recently, then something is up, and on the last note to it, when something would happen in work, they would laugh and thinks it’s funny, it’s not, it really does not, in fact, on the last day of work, they were talking about breaking a policy, then laugh about it, they don’t understand feeling at all and this place should shaken up to the core and they should take their jobs seriously and learn how to treat with respect in a correct way. Also with lot of patience too
