    I have been working at Sage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Amazing benefits
    Competitive pay
    Exceptional Colleagues
    Stability of one of the top ERP providers in the world
    Room for growth and continued career success

    Onboarding can get better, but other than that it's great and face paced.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to always listen to the folks on the ground as they really make a difference in making Sage as good as it is.

    Pros

    Best co-workers around! High performing culture and making some of the best products on the market today. When I think, truly think of the people we are surrounded by and the things our products do to make it easier for people to live their lives, fulfill their dreams, I feel very fortunate to work at Sage. I also have a very open, communicative manager and that helps a lot.

    Cons

    Nothing is without problems but no issues here that any large global company does not experience.

    Advice to Management

    I do think we need to figure out how to more effectively work our bonus structure and make it more based on individual measures as well.

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

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Decent benefits
    Nice/modern office space
    Diverse environment

    Cons

    Lack of training and support for new employees
    Unorganized structure
    Lack of clear communication
    Unrealistic goals set by management
    Not a team oriented environment
    Still stuck in old corporate America ways

    Advice to Management

    Create a real training program for new employees. Provide ongoing support and training. Invest in your employees. Make HR resources easier to access. Provide more incentives and easier ways of give/receive recognition. Sage wants a world class work environment but doesn’t seem willing to take the necessary steps in order to create it. Stop cutting corners. Carefully work on getting the right people in the right place. Hire actual trainers and stop bringing in people and expecting them to learn the job on their own.

    I worked at Sage full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loved working with my immediate co-workers. We all struggled together. Benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    Management across the ocean does not understand US needs. Major decisions made without having the knowledge base or systems to support them. Concerns about risks with compliance and employee pay ignored by upper management. More concerned with bringing new people in than keeping existing employees. In the last 10 years my performance always met or exceeded expectations, and I received the full "potential" annual bonus only twice.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on the pep rallies and more on the winning team. Your people care about the business - listen to them.
