    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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!

    Advice to Management

    Answer calls!

    Pros

    Big Company. Stable. Young company to work for.

    Cons

    Salary and commission is very poor compared to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more incentives to make people work hard. No acknowledgement.
