    Vibrant, dynamic culture with a strong focus on leadership and working in the community. Lot's of opportunity to grow and progress if you are willing to work hard. Plenty of chance to learn new tech.

    Cons

    Tough internal competition and currently reorganising but this brings about opportunity as well as difficulties.

    I have been working at Sage full-time

    Pros

    Boite hyper sympa avant le début de la réorganisation il y a 2 ans.
    La bonne ambiance a disparu.

    Cons

    Entre le PSE, les licenciements et la mauvaise ambiance pour pousser aux démissions notre belle boite va très très mal...

    Advice to Management

    Toutes les entreprises doivent se restructurer à un moment mais c'est dommage de le faire dans ces conditions inhumaines...

    "Technical support"

    I worked at Sage full-time

    Pros

    The company encourages employee to do charity work.

    Cons

    To choose between employees and cost, the company prefers cost cutting. They would rather hires new staff with liffle expereince instead of retaining expererienced employees just to save a few bucks. The customer focus is really a lie.

    Advice to Management

    A good management requires integrity which is lacking in this company.

    I worked at Sage full-time

    Pros

    Good vacation allowance, (though its added in with sick time).

    Cons

    Management is not trained as to how to manage effectively. They believe that bullying will provide results.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to HR - when someone leaves with grievances, hear them out. It could save you time, money and a potential lawsuit in the future.

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

    Pros

    Great Work Life Balance - Family First - Managers are never there - Managment gives you trust and hires you for your knowledge.

    Cons

    The company is falling apart, Stephen Kelly has not turned the company around as you can see that from the inside. Its hard to pretended but everything is falling apart. Enough said I don't want to go into detail.

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk to your employee's backs especially to non-management.

    Pros

    Welcomed like a part of the Sage family.
    Meetings were arranged for me to meet everyone from Line managers to the CEO.
    Beautiful, well laid out and, well designed offices in the Shard.

    Cons

    Having only been here a short amount of time I personally have yet to find any Cons, that is not to say however that there are none.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the examples of Stephen Kelly and Nick Goode who strive for diversity and equality - utterly aspirational.

    Pros

    Tres bonne société si on souhaite un travail tranquille. J'ai eu la chance d’être assez libre quant au recrutement que j'ai eu à faire et aux objectifs que je me suis fixés malgré un environnement très peu flexible.

    Cons

    L'ambiance est trés bureaucratique et sans prise de risque, un peu comme dans une administration donc pas très stimulante. La R&D complètement autiste même si aujourd'hui les choses s'améliorent

    Advice to Management

    Travailler sur l'offre produit au lieu de vous concentrer sur l'EBIT

    Pros

    Some dedicated & caring people; good pay and reasonable benefits; some good products.

    Cons

    Managers not reviewed by their subordinates nor trained in proper people skills; some managers make accidental or on purpose disparaging remarks (calling a staff stu[pid ]without justification) and no one to turn to. Some race & gender favoritism. Witnessed persons who blame their mistakes on others. A few staff seem to revel in being nasty or backstabbing behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers in proper people skills. Put focus on just successes and hard work instead of just the occasional mistake especially when the successes FAR OUTWEIGH any mistakes. Do not allow any favoritism of any kind, and never ... I mean never call a person a derogatory name to their face or behind their back. If managers think something can be done better, then prove it ... share your thoughts and ideas but if all you do is criticise, you are the one that is wrong.
