    Thanks so much for your review. It is disappointing to hear that you don't feel like you get a good work/life balance at Sage as flexible working is something we really promote in the business and... More

    I worked at Sage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When I started at Sage, then Timberline Software, the company still had a small company feel to it. Developers were smart yet relaxed. We worked hard and we played hard. Met a lot of great developers working on builds and installs and teams were tight knit communities where everyone was focused on achieving the same goals. The culture was one of the best points about the company for most of the time I was employed there.

    Cons

    After Timberline merged with Sage things slowly started going downhill. Culture will change during mergers and to be fair the changes were slow, but it seemed they were all in the wrong direction. The management layer was adjusted nearly yearly and with each reimagining came less and less connection and understanding of what developers on the floor needed. The company slowly became corporate in feel and it didn't feel like anyone stayed for anything but a pay check. Leadership from management was generally ineffective and started to lack simple integrity. I was routinely called out for trivial mistakes and I wasn't the only one. By the time I'd left I was working 60+ hour weeks, raises and bonuses were small or non-existent, and moral pretty low. Indeed, in subsequent years I've learned many of the smartest folks I'd worked alongside left as well. Ten, fifteen years ago it was an amazing shop. Now?

    Advice to Management

    Listen, encourage, focus on people's strengths, and most importantly, walk the walk.

    I have been working at Sage full-time

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility and work/life balance: measure of success isn't based on time spent in office, but rather the quality of work
    For the most part, teams are open to new ideas, allowing colleagues to be experts and take ownership of roles and responsibilities, but to be clear, you must be an expert in your role
    Not a company for you if you're looking to get paid by showing up from 9-5
    Lots of eager team players, though some colleagues are a bit burnt out, they still love what they do, and work hard
    Company is undoubtedly in transition, so it takes flexibility, new ideas, positivity and patience to be successful.

    Cons

    Moving too quickly, without taking time to look back and analyze successes
    The company struggles to find the balance between local and global management and processes
    Internal processes take up a lot of time and make it twice as harder to keep projects moving
    There's a constant shift in focus, targets, direction - you need to be nimble
    Disgruntled employees are many times stuck in their ways, typical corporate culture, but this is changing

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging team members, stay positive and keep communication open and allow for new ideas. Advocate for team members when internal processes become time-consuming and daunting.

    Pros

    Fun environment. Everyone was social, and worked pretty well with one another.

    Cons

    No real structure to the internship training. Just sort of went day by day.
