Featured Review

Current Employee - Communications Director

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

Pros

A purpose-driven organisation with strong values and honest/clear communication from leadership

Cons

Our "Always On" working environment can tip the balance between work and home. Can sometimes focus on doing too many things. Prioritisation is important.

Advice to Management

Keep up the clear and honest communication. It's so important during these uncertain times. Jobs and salaries are being protected during COVID-19 which is providing a level of certainty that many... companies are unable to provide right now. Continue to encourage colleagues to take breaks and manage their mental health while working remotely.
