    I have been working at Sageworks full-time

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly and willing to help, access to executives, challenging work, growing quickly and adding new products, very customer-centric.

    Cons

    None that I've found yet. I enjoy my work.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Sageworks full-time

    Pros

    Thrown into the fire
    Learn to be self-sufficient
    Jump starts your career

    This is a place for high flyers only. If you can't handle the heat, you will most likely burn out or be fired. That being said, no company was more instrumental to my initial growth than Sageworks. If you want to be successful in your career, this is an excellent starting point.

    Cons

    Long hours
    Little direction
    Almost no room for advancement without creating new departments/teams

    I worked at Sageworks (More than a year)

    Pros

    Because you are all tied together in a sinking ship, you meet some really great people and bond quickly.

    Cons

    Goals that are not attainable, management that has so long ago checked out of their own product that they can no longer relate to anything about the needs of their employees, lack of professionalism from the top down, "Boy's Club" mentality, homophobia, sexism, and prejudice.

    Advice to Management

    Lock the doors.

    I have been working at Sageworks full-time

    Pros

    Fast-growing company that is still prioritizing the customer service and product improvements that got it there
    Relatively flat organization with a encouragement to jump in and own anything you see that can be improved, regardless of how long you've been here or your title
    Great pay with increasing leadership opportunities due to the high growth and addition of new employees and roles
    Dog friendly and casual dress

    Cons

    Need to increase office space for new employees and more meeting rooms
    Improvement is needed in communication of the product road map to employees outside of the technology area

    Advice to Management

    Don't create extra process just because you are growing. They've done a good job at this but it should be often repeated. Improve the structure where it is needed but don't add too many hoops to jump through or barriers to progress

    Pros

    I've been at Sageworks for half a decade; the company has always had very good products and super smart people working here. But I wanted to highlight here the significant positive changes that have occurred over the past 12-24 months: more flexibility on schedule for employees, improved benefits, and building new teams to better serve the rapidly growing number of customers. I think the last two years have seen the company mature significantly.

    Cons

    Growing fast is a good thing. Building new teams and hiring more staff is a good thing. But make sure that the barrier for entry remains difficult. Sageworks has done a good job with this up to this point, but it will be more and more difficult as the company gets bigger.

    Advice to Management

    See above.

    Pros

    Great growth, significant amount of responsibility even for junior employees, opportunities for advancement, smart people who care, learning a lot

    Cons

    You'll work hard and have defined expectations

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on--there is a lot of additional potential in the bank market.

    Pros

    If you have the ability and drive you can move up quickly.
    If you are a true sales professional you can make a good income and be proud of what you are selling.
    Company has been working hard to improve life / work balance and this is paying off.

    Cons

    The company used to have horrible turnover. New leadership in the area of sales has greatly diminished this and very professional sales team. But the reputation lingers with some that live in Raleigh.
    Even thought it is not a start up it still has start up tendencies. This can make the company see disorganized at time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working with employees to make sure they have solid work/life balance. Make sure that all employees get their fair share of success that they have worked hard for.

    Pros

    Very smart and very hard working people. Great products and focus on service to clients. Loyal clients. Profitable and stable.

    Cons

    Lots of processes are now being put in place as we have gotten bigger. I know it is necessary now that we are bigger but it makes us a bit slower than we used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the core principles top of mind for everyone.

    I worked at Sageworks full-time

    Pros

    None - Had to type 5 words to submit

    Cons

    Very immature company that acts like a start-up even though they've been around since 1998. Terrible work environment. No work/life balance. An employee will be very well liked and the minute they quit the response is, "They just didn't fit into our culture." Well frankly, no one with a soul fits into your culture. One of their core values is "unreasonableness." No joke.

    Advice to Management

    Let someone else run this company before you run it into the ground
