Typical headhunting recruiting company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sapphire Technologies

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

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.

Not bad for a consulting job. Benefits are marginal.

Great place to grow

Recruiting Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I worked at Sapphire Technologies

ProsGreat pay and room for advancement. Management tries to promote from within. They try new ideas. The commission and benefits plans are fantastic. They have a leadership in training program that helps to groom leaders, unfortunately it hasn't been as succesful because they often overlook the day to day mentoring.

Conscompany got too big that they forgot about entrepreneurial approach they once had. Employees become more of a number and senior management was less approachable. The culture can become too enthusiastic about drinking and happy hours and not enough on other fun outings.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to roots of smaller and decentralized company, but keep the marketing and HR functioning as federal programs, they do a good job.
