    Pros

    Pay was good and on time.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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

    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

    Senior management is some of the best in the industry. Really know their stuff. They treat people right and want to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Training could be better, and the employee development (in terms of softer skills) has a ways to go, but this (and the parent company, Randstad), is a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see more dedication to developing employees and leaders, because it seemed that the managers consisted mostly of top salespeople, not necessarily individuals qualified to "lead" or even trained to manage adequately.

    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.
