Walking on broken glass is less painful

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Pasadena, CA

I have been working at Sapphos Environmental full-time for more than a year

ProsWonderful benefits. Wide variety of projects, clients, and jobs to work on.

ConsExtremely high turn over rate, average employee tenure with company less than five years, average age of employees mid twenties.

The standard method of operations with regards to human resources is:

1. hire educated, experienced, and talented people at a salary above industry standard,
2. demand 100 percent loyalty and dedication of them through guilt and manipulation,
3. when it is perceived they are unable to perform their work at this unrealistic level of perfection, arbitrarily and capriciously humiliate, belittle, abuse, ridicule, and strongly encourage them to leave,
4. after they have left the company belittle and ridicule their performance to their peers and Sapphos clients,
5. repeat the process with next hire.

Senior management team of 10 reduced to 5 in less than two years. See number 3 above.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to treat employees with respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
