I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SapientNitro.
Interview Details – Poor hiring skills.
I received a call from Sapient as a result of a referral. First a telephonic test on the tools involved was taken passing which I was given a case-study. They might have liked my case-study which is why they called me for a face-to-face interview with the team leads. There were three rounds in the face-to-face and all three asked the same questions. Most questions were definition based and did not involve business logic. The following week HR rolled out the offer to me which was much lower than what I had stated as my expectations. Tried to negotiate but the stated CTC was final. I wanted to accept the offer and called the HR to do so but she didn't receive my call or call me back.Two days later the HR mails me that my offer stand cancelled as there was no communication on e-mail from my end.They selected another candidate without giving me any dead-lines for my acceptance.
Interview Question – Definitions based question as definition is not something which one would remember after being on-the-job for 3.5 years. I had expected more business case-study related questions. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Felt that the job would involve much data-crunching and not include media strategy and planing

Negotiation Details – During cv shortlisting phase I had mentioned CTC as per company standard, as I had heard about great salary offer from Sapient. But I was wrong. They dont offer equally to people of same level. I tried to negotiate but couldn't as the recruiters were stubborn/arrogant and they were reluctant to increase. As I had no other offer at that time I accepted. That too the CTC offered had 5% variable.

Interview Details – A case study is given, to prepare a proposal. Case is like an RFP and the response is to be prepared. You'll be left in a room with many white-boards and an hour to prepare a response.
On return the interviewer expects all drawings of the solution on the boards and all text of the proposal to be talked through. Topics being assessed
- Your familiarity to preparing RFP responses
- Ability of the solution to reasonably solve the problem
- Your ability to defend the solution and make necessary changes for challenges that the interviewer pose
