Company Updates

  • Our CEO, Steve Hare, speaks out and speaks up in solidarity with our black community. "I unconditionally condemn racism and I am committed to building on the work we are already doing to ensure a safe and inclusive environment for all Sage colleagues, customers and partners.

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

    Pros

    I joined Sage about 6 months ago, and have been blown away by the focus on being setup to do the right thing whilst delivering world class leading products, the drive for colleagues to succeed and develop, and the feeling of community through the Sage Foundation.

    Sage has been nothing short of top class during the Covid-19 crisis, and provided employees with regular, clear and consistent messages, the tools and technologies to perform duties from home and the space & support for people to manage home and work commitments.

    I genuinely believe that I have joined one of the best businesses in the UK if not the world!

    Cons

    No cons - joining Sage has been the best decision I have made in my career!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and take some time to thank yourselves!

    SEO Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sage (London, England) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their internal recruiter as they thought I was a good match for the role and got a first screening with them first. I then proceeded to have another interview with the SEO Manager and the SEO Director around my experience and expertise. Both of them were really nice and the interview went well (or I guess I thought so). The next step would have been a technical task. However, after a couple of weeks I got an automated email from their system stating they had offered the role to another candidate. The recruiter didn't even bother sending a feedback upon request, but they've put the role back up again. Glad I didn't have to spend hours on a task as some other people had to do before receiving the same treatment, to be honest.
