  1. Shameful Sapphire management in Woburn, MA continually lied and went against their own contract agreement

    Pros

    Automatic pay arrived on time.

    Cons

    Management was indifferent and repeatedly lied about pay rate. Sapphire agent lied about the pay rate at the time they were recruitment. After I began working for them under contract, they cut my pay rate by 10%, twice and refused their own contract agreement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sapphire broke all reasonable labor practices; I intend to hold Sapphire Technologies a Randstad company accountable. I hope others will come forward to help stop these recruiting companies from abusing contract pay for Professional staff.

    I worked at Sapphire Technologies

    Pros

    Was a large company with a lot of clients and personal relationships. Upper management was great! They seemed to care a lot about their workers.

    Cons

    Pay base is not even close to average. Commision is under par as well...the sky is NOT the limit. Direct management WAY to focused on numbers in which the company was out of touch with what was going on in the market. VMS is taking over and passing them by. Constantly worked longer hours(12+) and weekends to hit their goals. Direct management was unapproachable with problems and wasn't open to new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start treating your employee like they are human. People need work life balance!! If people work overtime and put in extra time, they should be rewarded for it, not constantly put down. Work WITH your employees to develop new strategies for growth, instead of increasing production and longer hours. Work smarter instead or work longer! Try and create a positive atmosphere, but don;t be blind to what is happening in the Market and reality.

    Pros

    Sapphire Technologies Irvine pays on time.

    Cons

    Don't be surprised if they offer you "teaser rate" just to lower it after a few months. They always call from blocked numbers, always have their voicemail full (no way to leave a message), most of the time ignore you. At times can be rude. And Sapphire Technologies representatives from Irvine, CA won't have the slightest problem with signing a contract with a very good rate, just to lower it after a few months because of "bad economy" or "client lowering rate for us too". And I mean 30% + cut. I know they do it on a regular basis, so at least I'm not special case. They just do it - that's their way of conducting business... Worst consulting experience EVER! Stay away from them!

    Pros

    It was a job. I had very little interaction with the management. They are really just a body-shop for filling government contracts.

    Cons

    They are really just a body-shop for filling government contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure they have no need of my input. They weren't at all interested in it when I worked there.

    Pros

    Great pay and room for advancement. Management tries to promote from within. They try new ideas. The commission and benefits plans are fantastic. They have a leadership in training program that helps to groom leaders, unfortunately it hasn't been as succesful because they often overlook the day to day mentoring.

    Cons

    company got too big that they forgot about entrepreneurial approach they once had. Employees become more of a number and senior management was less approachable. The culture can become too enthusiastic about drinking and happy hours and not enough on other fun outings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to roots of smaller and decentralized company, but keep the marketing and HR functioning as federal programs, they do a good job.

    I worked at Sapphire Technologies as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Wages were on par with other contract companies.
    Managers never communicated or discussed how you were doing aas long as you showed up or work and put in your card for the week.

    Cons

    Insurance is horrible - You pay out the nose.
    Contract to Full Time never materialized.
    Relocation expenses - Sapphire never repaid expenses
    If you have problems with the Company - they with the company.
    They force you to provide password information or your check is garnished.

    Pros

    Eqquitable salary, but management tends to be secretive.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems they will hire anybody, so often mentoring is required that can interfere with job responsibilitiues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making training and continuing education available would be a big plus.
