Foccused only on billing and not on work product
Project Technical (Former Employee) – Dallas – November 5, 2013
This is a company that will tell the young recruits that is 'fun'. They do happy hours, encourage young engineers to drink and go out with clients, which is great and could be appealing to someone right out of school, but at the end the company does not spend time on developing the skills or a good career advancment.
They are only foccused on one thing: to bill.
They require 100% billability, which means people need to work 50-55hr/week to attain that, they push people to work after hours and over weekends or holidays (without compensation).
The compensations or bonus are only tied to billability, not the work product or how good you do your job. It doesn't matter if the deliverable is faulty as long as you bill 100%.
To work at Sage and do somewhat 'well', you need more than 10yrs of experience, then you won't be another number to them and you'll be better compensated.
I would not recommend this company for a young engineer. There are plenty of other companies out there that are better to start a career.
no work/life balance, everything is about billing, bad compensation
