    I have been working at Sapphire Digital full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance, flexible hours, free snacks and drinks

    Cons

    No real processes, low morale

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to not be aware of the problems going on with senior leadership and do something to fix it!

    Pros

    The company has a clear and compelling value proposition-to positively impact the cost of healthcare. There is real effort made to communicate how all employees contribute to the progress toward that vision. There is a lot of emphasis placed on recognizing individual contributions and their impact.

    Cons

    Not a "con" per se, but a rapid growth environment is very different than what exists in more established companies, and in order to succeed you really need to be capable of finding the balance between "just doing it" vs waiting for direction.

    I worked at Sapphire Digital

    Pros

    Small group of people, free snacks and massage. Flexible work schedules in most departments. Good short term gig right out of college.

    Cons

    Management has no clue how to make it work. Incompetent and insecure people under the executive team are being rewarded while others have left or made to leave. Every time they miss numbers, it is due to external factors. Their bonus figures are not earned because they keep missing targets. Do not believe the positive spin in management presentation to employees. All incompetent people get salary their adjusted so...

    Advice to Management

    Do not make people leave good jobs to join vitals when there seems no long term direction.

    I have been working at Sapphire Digital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Innovative, fast paced company that gives employees a chance to work with new technologies. Vitals empowers employees to make a difference and encourages creativity and 'out of the box' thinking. If you're the type of individual that enjoys taking on challenges and wants to help in creating a culture collaboration and communication. Vitals is the place for you.

    Cons

    The challenges that Vitals face is no different than any organization growing at a rapid pace. Sometimes things and staff are taken for granted. Leaders need to know when to take the foot of the pedal and allow for one to take a breath. The management staff needs to demonstrate by example. There are still many entrenched silos that block collaboration and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Promoting internally for senior management positions will demonstrate confidence in current staff and maintain continuity within the company.

    "Great to their engineers"

      Current Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY

      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Sapphire Digital full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Vitals doesn't micro-manage its engineers, trusts their judgment, gives them a good team setup and light-touch management to produce some really great results. Also, no big egos - everyone works well together. Unlimited vacation, flexible time-off policy, excellent work-life balance.

      Cons

      E-suite people are a bit out of touch with what everyone else is doing/saying/thinking. We only get a "Here's how our company's doing" meeting once every 4 months or so. Also no matching on 401k.

      Advice to Management

      Get us a match on our 401k's already. And let us know what's happening - we shouldn't have to wait till company gossip gets to us to know whether or not we're doing well.

      Pros

      The management is great! They give you a lot of autonomy to do your job.

      Cons

      The product development and sales teams seem like 2 separate companies at times.

      Advice to Management

      Put customers first.
