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

    Pros

    Offers a lot of overtime. Nice people who work there (NOT the execs, except for a couple, but you wouldn't know they're execs)

    Cons

    Really terrible work environment, from the smells of commerce city (wastewater treatment plant smells like poo, dogfoods factorys), people so quick to throw others under bus to avoid getting into trouble, not much room for future, super corporate

    I have been working at Sage Telecom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, training (low level management),

    Cons

    work load caused long hours, new management (owners), office locations ( under new owners), Company values (falling), and the overall desire of employees to be there (negative attitudes)

    Advice to Management

    Some need to smile in the halls. Say thank you and excuse me

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

    Pros

    Great long-term employees. Managers are great and there is a very good work-to-life balance.
    Casual attire, company lunches and breakfasts are common. Open door policy and department communicate well with each other

    Cons

    Currently, there are lay-offs going on company wide. Uncertainty about the future of the company which is very sad for all employees. The new location in Dallas offers a challenging commute for employees.

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

    Pros

    It was easy to ask for time off and I never had a problem with any days that I requested off; co-workers were a joy to work with

    Cons

    Senior Management out of tune with what the needs of the company are and how to treat its employees; no room for growth or promotion

    Advice to Management

    Respect the employees who made Sage Telecom what it was before you took over it and stop running the company into the ground

    Pros

    On a person-to-person basis, everyone seemed very nice.

    Cons

    I worked there when Sage was in Allen. Most of Sage Telecom is a call center. I'm not sure how people working in the actual call center were treated, but if you are coming in as a mid-level manager, director, or highly experienced professional, you don't want to be treated like you're a $13/hr call center employee. It seemed that you were only immune from being perceived this way if you were at VP level or above. When I interviewed, I was also told that I would have more responsibilities that I eventually ended up with. And the cube situation was awful! Putting people who have to analyze and do detailed work right next to people who are always on the phone was very distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with more respect. When interviewing candidates for managerial and professional-level positions, be candid about what their responsibilities will be.
