    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Review contractor turnover

    Pros

    Pay was good and on time.

    Cons

    No information, absolutely none. Treated as 2nd class and totally knew it.

    Advice to Management

    train the sub managers of each project to work with the people they hire as valued members NOT mushrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Are you so greedy that you can´t even give us days off or a fair wage?

    Pros

    Amazing people within the company, and the managers understand that it's the internal employees that make the engine roar. Positive energy. Trustworthy, honest people throughout the organization. Unlimited growth potential. fun place to work.

    Cons

    It can be a grind at times. You have to committ 2-3 years to really "get it" and master your role. But you get out of it what you put into it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at mid-level employee compensation. Comp package is very good for incoming new employees and excellent once you "make it" as a Top 20% performer. But there are some mid-level employees being lured out by competitors for $10-$20K annually that they would have made plus some if they stayed with Sapphire. Oddly enough, some of these people that left never do any better than they thought they would, and actually considered coming back. But I wish they hadn't left in the first place because they were great employees and people I became friends with.
