    Pros

    Support of Upper Management
    committment to continuous improvement
    community and outreach involvement
    always looking for ways to improve the work and personal lives of it's employees
    Great opportunity for advancement for people that lead by example, share ideas in a constructive manner and continue to evolve as the company and industry evolves.

    Cons

    Adjusting from being a small company to a big company - there have been some speed bumps and will continue to have some but working through it
    The company is comitted to training and developing employees - looking forward to the company finding the right approach and programs for this type of sales environment. It's very encouraging to see the company's comittment and desire to succeed in this area.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    This is an company that seems to really have it together. Everyone at the office is very responsive to my requests and I love my benefits package.

    Cons

    Benefits are a little pricey and it would be good to have an online employee manual you can access 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, I have been very satisfied and feel like if I were to recruit for an agency again, this would be a place I could be comfortable.

    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...
