Pros: somewhat decent benefits & 401k, good vacation and sick policy, number of dedicated staff; nice office
Cons: see full review. company and management continually change strategy to cover up their mistakes.
Sage executives and management seem to be at a loss on what to do to increase revenue, so they harvest and sunset the money-making products, while still selling said products to new customers (are the customers being told the product for which they just spent thousands is being eliminated?), to force a euro product into the US. It is unknown whether – more... US business will accept or adopt the product because it's too complex and setup intensive. Further, the Euro product uses UI terms that are based on European financial terms; company abandons or won't invest in tools to increase efficiency; pours money into unproven products, bleeding current customers to support excessive management personnel while cutting the people that do the work; increasing costs to partners and customers with no loyalty or benefit of same; corporate mission statements promote quality & brand camaraderie while backdoor actions promote fear, uncertainty, low morale, inefficient meetings, spreadsheets, gossip, continual shifting of priorities; lots of finger-pointing. Employees are transferred to different products without asking them what they want, and where they want to be (employees took these jobs because they had a feeling that they would be laid off if they didn't). Salary & promotions not kept up-to-date with performance while higher pay and promotions given to non-producers or empty promise makers. Company behind the times in software technology in money-producing products due to lack or ignorance of vision, insufficient effort to maintain loyalty to customers and partner, and uses tactics like changing product names to increase sales instead of spending time and money getting the training, technology, and tools to be the best in the industry. Keeping managers just 'because' they've been loyal in lieu of laying off numerous productive, caring, employees. Woefully underestimated the move to the cloud and mobile technologies. Most staff who work on (or want to learn) newly introduced cloud / mobile technologies have to buy their own equipment (phones, laptops, ipads, iphones, etc). No test recording equipment so testers must do most testing manually, then write (in Excel/Word) the steps/data setup, and submit to one dept that sends it to India, who then has to send it back for review (and often revision). The test then sits on the shelf till someone has time to create it, but testers have to go dig through endless spreadsheets and documents to find out if the test has ever been automated (and generally, it has not)--why not just bite the bullet on a test recorder and automated system to save time and increase efficiency company wide? Ok job till you decide what you really want to do with your life, but if you value integrity, stability, commitment to customers and technology, keep your education up-to-date and be as loyal to Sage as they won't be to you, and I wouldn't plan on staying as long as I did. – less
