    Incredible Company

    Manager Interactive Program Management (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany Culture, Values, Leadership, Co-Workers, Office Environment, Work-life balance, Benefits, + More.

    I have worked for SapientNitro for a year now and it has been a great experience thus far! Everyone is extremely talented, brilliant, and nice - and you will learn a ton if you decide to work here. Work-life balance is pretty good, but expect to have occasional late nights/ early mornings. As with any Ad-Agency, everything is very fast pace and extremely hands on. Sapient wants you to succeed, and leadership often checks in to see if you need anything.

    ConsEvery day is different: although SapientNitro has an overall great work-life balance, there are definitely times where you will have a million things pile up at once. I wish there was a way to distribute tasks more evenly throughout the week. Again, this only happens about once every three weeks, but it's definitely a burden when it does (cancel dinner plans, stay late, etc.).

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing - it's been great.

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

    Amazing people, supportive environment. Lots of opportunities to learn if you're not afraid to work for it!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat culture, quality people, an environment that fosters honesty and growth, lots of opportunities for learning. You're never told no - instead you are always offered the opportunity to take on more responsibility, and are encouraged to work with others to enable the success of the company. Leadership is great with communicating the overall vision and growth of the company.

    ConsCompensation/benefits is not as competitive as other places.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep living the core values, and the open lines of communication! The level of trust at sapient is great.

    Sapient sets its people up for success. Amazing culture.

    Manager, Program Management (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsValues its people. Builds a culture for the long term. Work life balance is fair, but like any consulting gig that somewhat depends on the project. Not driven by short term thinking. Dedicated to doing what is right for the project. Very values driven. Sounds hokey in this day and age, but true.

    Cons401 plan stinks. Long vest, low match. Tends to promote slowly, which isn't terrible (you can't unpromote someone). Still a business and will make tough business decisions when necessary, but that's normal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on the current path.

    Wonderful company

    Manager, Business Intelligence (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting and creative work. Unique brand. Sharp Folks!

    ConsAt the time, they had decided to focus squarely on their SapientNitro and Creative Marketing business, which meant that lower margin work was left behind.
