    It's 2014 Who are we now?

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    Pros- Location
    - Technology that is used for clients
    - Focus on commerce is smart

    Cons- Executive management is weak
    - Needs to attend to customer satisfaction

    Advice to Senior Management- Continue to hire subject matter experts to provide credibility to your brand

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

    Know what you want out of the job before you take the job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsFlexibility, lots of work travel (plus if you are young and single), heavy use of open source software specifically in CMS engagements (plone, alfresco, zope and php). Great place to build your chops if CMS is your thing.

    ConsErratic leadership, focused more on short term bottom line revenue rather than long term customer satisfaction. I encountered integrity violation while on the job when it came to dealing with customers. They do have smart, seasoned and mature leadership but they seem to be out voted by the more "dodgy" ones. The dog that barks the loudest gets the most attention syndrome was present while I worked there. Also growing within the company seemed more of a popularity contest rather than mature business execution.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to be flash in the pan and repeat Sapient. Maybe focus more on true differentiation and leadership when it comes to growing employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be exciting and fun...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood technical people willing to share knowledge
    Possibility to work with various pieces of technology
    Happy hours
    Good compensation & benefits overall

    ConsStagnating company
    Changed directions too many times. No real vision for where to go.
    Poor staffing on projects (skills available vs needs) causing lots of delivery issues
    Issues with staffing projection (loop: lay-offs, hiring, end loop)

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not start a project if you don't have the right staffing
    Pick a direction and turn the boat to avoid the iceberg!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
