    Smart and on ponit

    ConsI didn't any notice any issues with them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing!

    Very impressed with attention to employees

    Project Lead (Current Employee) Columbus Grove, OH (US)

    ProsGood health benefits, keep engagement employees who are on customer sites, on time pay, I think it was weekly!

    ConsI was working at a customer's location so the cons were more of the client's than Sapphire. Per the terms of my hire, no pay for time off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good benefits

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company

    Office Manager/Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Vienna, VA (US)

    ProsI really enjoyed the people I worked with and the work hard play harder attitude that people had. Definitely a work hard environment but still very fun and employees are given the opportunity to succeed if they so choose.

    ConsWhen I was there the Vienna, Va office had a lot of turn over with management which was difficult... The branch manager when I started was terrible but a new guy transferred from Richmond, and he was great...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Typical headhunting recruiting company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPays fast until end client pays. No paycheck delays. I had a good experience with theirs hiring managers, professional and helpful.

    ConsThis is a bear-bone low level company if you're a contracting through them. No benefits, or let me say, you-pay-in-ful-out-of-your-pocket benefits. They dont provide good pay rates either.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you making a lot on a contractor, please provide at least a decent level of benefits, so people can stick with you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pretty typical traditional staffing firm

    Business Development (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN (US)

    ProsWas a good first staffing job. The training by the manager was decent. The offices were great. The tech support guy was awesome.

    Consunprofessional branch manager. too concerned with numbers and margins. And she played favorites in the office which caused animosity among employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand what is going on better in the branches. Don't just be concerned with the numbers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Wonderful place to work

    National Accounts Recruiter (Former Employee) Woburn, MA (US)

    ProsSapphire invests in their employees with training, rewards etc.

    ConsI left because I personally did not like recruiting and found it was not a job for me, but I loved my time at Sapphire. Loved the company the people and the culture just wish I could have had a different day to day job within the company.

    Fooled into promise of Full Time Employment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWages 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.

    ConsInsurance 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.

    Only care about billable hours

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

    Prosvery automated pay system. Pay is like clock work. Pay hits your account within 2 days of your timesheet submission.

    ConsI only hear from them once every three months to see how it is going. I have had several promises of "let us take you to lunch. etc....without follow through. The only thing they care about is whether you are billing or not.
