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

    Pros

    There are so many to list but the things that stand out to me is that the company truly cares about its employees and clients alike. This was proven during the pandemic. They are very flexible with employees and they value a strong work/life balance, many work from home full time. Everyone has great ethics and treats each other with respect, and overall there is high ethics and morale. Since it's a growing company, there is so much room for growth and people's hard work is recognized through promotions. They are generous overall and often find ways to reward their employees. Free snacks, milk, juices, sodas all the time. One of the best companies I have been privileged to work for.

    Cons

    None that i can think of.

    Great culture, we get to work remotely in inclement weather, great team and a good work/life balance. Competitive bonus program is a plus. And regular potlucks!

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a bit of a disconnect between departments because the headquarters is in NJ.

    Pros

    The company offers a strong work/life balance, including unlimited PTO and the ability to work from home. The people are what keep me coming back - a fun, motivated group to work with.

    Cons

    As a smaller company, career opportunities are limited. With lots of competition in NY, you can typically find better growth opportunities and benefits/salary elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    The people are what make this company. Sapphire Digital has a very positive culture, and everyone seems to enjoy their work. Salary is decent. Great work-life balance. They get the whole company together once a year in NJ for company updates, team-building and socializing. Gym reimbursement is nice. As a whole, the company cares about their employees and regularly polls them to make sure we're staying engaged. I love the company's mission and I'm proud to work here.

    Cons

    Different departments within the company don't always communicate as well as they should.

    I have been working at Sapphire Digital full-time

    Pros

    So many reviews praise the snacks, work / life balance and unlimited vacation policy. That's really a "pro" at a start up? What about pride in the product / service?

    Cons

    Run like a large company, but repeatedly misses it's financial projections. CEO is pandering, disingenuous and inconsistent. Senior managers are usually not in the office and if they are, their doors are closed. Rewards "yes men" who don't rock the boat. Feels like an antiquated 1950's company with all sorts of soft incentives that miss the mark. Culture is weak. The proof is in the results.

    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.
