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 Management
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.
-Paid vacation time is OK.
- Bad 401k plan.(minimal or no contribution from employer)
- No definite plan for career growth.
- Salary is average in industry.
- Account Executives do not listen to you when it comes to asking for raise / rate revision. They continually ignore you and do not respond to the e-mails / phone calls.
