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

    Pros

    Employment benefits are industry standard

    Cons

    Corporate knows where they want to lead their company, but doesn't spend the extra money to hire qualified employees to lead them there. Compensation and advancement is directly dependent on personality acceptance within each hotel property on up to the corporate offices... if you make it there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified employees who have the experience and knowledge to implement training tools that nurture employees to great levels, instead of advancing cute smiles with no brains or drive.

    Poor pay practices

    • Comp & Benefits
    Former Employee - Manager  in  Denver, CO (US)

    I worked at Sage Hospitality full-time

    Pros

    The starting wage for most hourly employees seems fair for this sity

    Cons

    There is no fairness for managers, it is just whatever you can negotiate. If they like you you can get a raise. It isnt about how hard you work, how long you have been there or even the results you produce. I asked to see the management salary plan and was told there isn't one. This is messed up. Also, bonus sounds good but if the goals are unrealistic and you cannot earn it then don't even offer one. The vacation plan for executives sounds great but you can never get time off and if you leave the company you don't get anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make compensation equitable and fair. Don't treat people differently. Pay fairly

    Former Employee - Lifeguard in Orlando, FL (US)

    I worked at Sage Hospitality part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The training they give you at the resorts is great. Having to pay for licensing is tough though. The rooms help keep the value at a low standard

    Cons

    Inconsistency when it comes to scheduling. The management would put schedules out as late as morning of the day the new schedule would begin. When originally said they would post at least 1-2 weeks before hand

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good way to keep staffing is to listen about the schedules and the possibility of changing the policies and how things work

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time

    Pros

    Company works in a "fun" vertical, they have good team building events, and most of the people there are nice and genuinely care

    Cons

    Leadership, especially in the technical areas, is very weak. Not good communicators, lack skills necessary to properly manage employees and build a team, and has very shallow technical acumen, resulting in poor decision making and heavy reliance on external consultants. Poorly run organization overall. Lastly, tech management did not understand how to successfully build nor operate a technical infrastructure, resulting in the business not funding infrastructure, which caused massive instability and a company relying on 10 year old technology to provide services to its user base.

    I have been working at Sage Hospitality full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I like my property and GM. We are one of the best hotels in this town but our management company is terrible. They forced a HORRIBLE sales person on us who cannot do her job. It is more like a favor to someone to give her a job.

    Cons

    The corporate and middle management never tell you the truth about what is going on. They will lie about your benefits when your property transitions over to Sage. If your hotel or restaurant is going to Sage, QUIT NOW!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to things at the LOCAL level, not a broad spectrum business plan.

    I worked at Sage Hospitality full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Range of properties provide opportunities for individuals growing their career and willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Inconsistent communication between corporate personnel and property management. A much higher degree of politically based promotion than I've experienced with any other corporation I have been involved with. this, unfortunately, results in people who are not qualified being in key decision making positions incorporating the 'cya'
    modis operandi.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the commitment to hire and promote managerial personnel, both property and corporate level, based on objective criteria, knowledge and skill, as opposed to personal relationships. Commit to clear, honest, straight forward communication. Then breathe both in and throughout the organization.

    Pros

    Company really has it together, from there revenue management systems to their benefits they really understand the industry. Benefits, salary, and systems are great.

    Cons

    I didn't have any challenges, unfortunately the hotel they were managing was sold with a new management. I wouldn't have left the company unless it was sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, I loved this company.
