    I worked at Sapphire Digital full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, free snacks, a few really intelligent people there

    Cons

    Everything about this company is a "con". Upper management is running this company into the ground. They're bleeding money and rather spend it on useless perks like a game room instead of getting better benefits or a 401k match. No one knows what the future holds and majority of staff is feeling unmotivated.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone in the C-Suite. They're ruining the company.

    I have been working at Sapphire Digital full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO but good luck taking time off since you will have too much work on your plate to take a day off. Some flexibility to work remote in some areas of company.

    Cons

    Upper management is unapproachable and not willing to improve the culture. No 401K match, no raises, health insurance coverage is terrible and very expensive. Promotions are given unfairly and employees are taken advantage of. Hard to achieve bonus program.

    Advice to Management

    Stop working in solos and collaborate across the organization. The customer needs to come first and not ourselves. Only a few internal teams are thinking about the customer. Start to be transparent in your decisions and future plan of the company.

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

    Pros

    snacks, drinks, coffee, PTO, Working remotely/from home

    Cons

    Working from home and PTO depend heavily on which department you work in, so don't get too excited. They made a game room and are making a quiet lounge area, so you can work even more hours and feel like you don't need to ever go home! Upper management is clueless, out of touch. The CEO talks about her 'golfing handicap' as if people are really concerned about it too.....

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to each department, you're gonna lose good people.. even though the company already has.

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

    Pros

    Very casual environment and has a good work life balance. Everyone is friendly, not a lot of drama exists as with other companies. I have learned a great deal as an employee. When asked for more challenges they have given them to me. I am always learning. It is a good midsize company to build your resume. Once a month we are informed on how the company is doing which makes me feel apart of a team. Free gym membership...

    Cons

    Would like to see upper management present in the office more. I think that would be motivational.

    Advice to Management

    It would be beneficial for more internal promotion. It would be nice to see your colleagues move up and the company to acknowledge it. It happens, but not as much as it should.

    Pros

    Free snacks and drinks, gym membership, great to work with except upper management. Nice office space. Flexible hours and work from home.

    Cons

    The entire upper management. They seem to have this mentality of just hiring within their own circle of retired friends. Instead of promoting from within. None of them have a clue how to manage a software company. All they care about is themselves. Not a care about the people that actually do the work to move the company forward. There's no loyalty and you have to constantly...

    Advice to Management

    Fire all upper management and hire a more technical knowledgeable young open minded minds.

    Pros

    Nice fellow employees, if you remain employed there.

    Cons

    Company is failing and laying off people now as investors run scared. New CEO and upper management lacks knowledge in the digital arena, and is taking the company in the wrong direction. As a result they are looking at the downfall of a company that could have been great and successful.

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate previous CEO before it's too late, if it's not already too late to save the company.
