Featured Review

Current Employee - QA Manager

I have been working at Sage full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Career Opportunities & D&I - Focused on doing the right thing and ensuring everyone is regularly offered and takes advantage of mandatory trained on critical topics such as Security, Quality,... Diversity and Inclusion. Provide access to multiple online and webinar trainings to develop their People. Technology - a huge variety of tech' and a driving movement towards Cloud offering yet more opportunities from Salesforce, .Net, C#, Java, JS, Angular, REST, API's, Selenium etc. Comp' & Benefits - tangible bonus system that you have control over a proportion of making personal responsibility a key attribute of their employees. This sparks people on to giving their best. I could go on for days. Culture and Values - Satisfaction surveys where actions is promptly taken. Sensible Senior Management - Switched on, smart, capable and care about their people (not resources). Fully recognise the value we all bring and are appreciative at every opportunity. Covid - absolutely outstanding in caring for staff health and wellbeing, avoided Furlough, protected jobs, considerate of everyone's situation and been fantastic with comm's, updates, flexibility and resources such as free Mindfulness app. Work/Life Balance - Incredibly supportive of this with flexible hours, open conversations on concerns in this area and help always available from managers to juggle the Covid new world we live in. Additionally (unprompted) offered 3 additional wellbeing days off on top of annual leave to spend on caring for ourselves so we bring our best selves to work every day. I've worked for many employers from start-ups to blue chip and rarely do I wax lyrical about how good an employer is, as I have high standards. Sage has regularly exceeded these in my 4 years here.

Cons

None that I can think of. Big company making big changes but somehow manage to have that small startup touch.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. Happy employee's are loyal & Productive and your biggest asset.

Current Employee - Customer Support Associate

I have been working at Advanced full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have been at the company for over a month, and have felt very well looked after. Advanced's ethos and culture is highly valuable and attractive. It is more than a job, but a community and I am... excited to see where my career takes me. The world is your oyster at Advanced, and the more you put in, the more you get out of it! I must also add, during the pandemic Advanced have been incredibly supportive, adaptable, and flexible with employees and this must be congratulated! I have already recommended the company to a friend.

Cons

I cannot think of anything.

Advice to Management

My manager is superb, so my advice would be to carry on the way she is.
