    I have been working at Sapphire Technologies as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good health benefits, keep engagement employees who are on customer sites, on time pay, I think it was weekly!

    Cons

    I was working at a customer's location so the cons were more of the client's than Sapphire. Per the terms of my hire, no pay for time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good benefits

    I worked at Sapphire Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with and the work hard play harder attitude that people had. Definitely a work hard environment but still very fun and employees are given the opportunity to succeed if they so choose.

    Cons

    When I was there the Vienna, Va office had a lot of turn over with management which was difficult... The branch manager when I started was terrible but a new guy transferred from Richmond, and he was great...

    Pros

    Pays fast until end client pays. No paycheck delays. I had a good experience with theirs hiring managers, professional and helpful.

    Cons

    This is a bear-bone low level company if you're a contracting through them. No benefits, or let me say, you-pay-in-ful-out-of-your-pocket benefits. They dont provide good pay rates either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you making a lot on a contractor, please provide at least a decent level of benefits, so people can stick with you.

    I worked at Sapphire Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Was a good first staffing job. The training by the manager was decent. The offices were great. The tech support guy was awesome.

    Cons

    unprofessional branch manager. too concerned with numbers and margins. And she played favorites in the office which caused animosity among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what is going on better in the branches. Don't just be concerned with the numbers.

    I worked at Sapphire Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sapphire invests in their employees with training, rewards etc.

    Cons

    I left because I personally did not like recruiting and found it was not a job for me, but I loved my time at Sapphire. Loved the company the people and the culture just wish I could have had a different day to day job within the company.

    I have been working at Sapphire Technologies

    Pros

    very automated pay system. Pay is like clock work. Pay hits your account within 2 days of your timesheet submission.

    Cons

    I only hear from them once every three months to see how it is going. I have had several promises of "let us take you to lunch. etc....without follow through. The only thing they care about is whether you are billing or not.

    Worse Placement Company I've ever dealt with

    Former Employee - Contrator in Denver, CO

    I worked at Sapphire Technologies

    Pros

    They pay in US dollars, they found work somewhat in my skill set and that I was capable of doing.

    Cons

    Hired me and left me. Nobody was there when I started; three hours of sitting in a lobby. Once I was showed to a desk neither the person who showed or Sapphire every came by to see it. I was in the middle of production support. The recruiter who got me never came by once despite promises other wise, and in fact would come on site and not see how a new person was doing. When this lack of communication and bad work environment lead me to leave, I was threatened being told I would never get a job in Denver CO again. To this day they obstruct new jobs opportunities. I would never recommend this place. It's the worse working experience I've ever had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to train you recruiters. It was quite clear I was just dollar signs to the one that worked me with. No even fake care about me as person was every given.
