I have been working at Sapphos Environmental full-time (More than a year)

Pros

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

Cons

Extremely 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 Management

Learn to treat employees with respect.

    Pros

    No pros are mentioned as no one should be encouraged to work here. The cons outweigh the pros tenfold or more.

    Cons

    I agree with the person who said walking on broken glass is less painful. The owner acts like an insane woman. She had a yelling match with a manager during working hours, then she walked out and slammed the front door, then proceeded to continue the argument outside, but within earshot. Things like this are not unusual there. Staff cringes when they hear her high-heels clicking towards them on the concrete office floors. She lies, deceives and is fickle in her alliances. Work there is impossible - imagine being asked to pick up 200 shards of that glass with one hand and build a pyramid. And if you succeed, she will take credit or give it to someone else. Metaphors aside, imagine you've been asked to prepare several proposals at one time, while remaining 97% chargeable. It can't be done but you will be treated like a traitor for saying that. A typical pattern is treating a person like royalty the first year, then trashing on them after that honeymoon period. There is something seriously wrong with this woman and it's too bad it's not against the law for bosses to act this way.

    Advice to Management

    Do NOT take a staff or manager position here. Several managers left while I was there. Run, don't walk, AWAY from that place. It will turn your life UPSIDE-DOWN and not in a good way.
