    I worked at Sapient (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Pay is great. It probably keeps more people here than any other reason.
    - Weeklong orientation (sometimes at another office) helps get you accustomed to everything.
    - Great coworkers and super-talented people. You'll learn something from more than a few people.

    Cons

    - Client roster is pretty bland. Potential to do cool work is limited.
    - While trying to sell big projects for a client, they barely manage to launch basic projects without issue.
    - Culturally speaking it's still rooted in corporate muck. Inspiring agency environment is a work in progress.
    - Resourcing is by demand and usually not by skillset or career focus, with the possibility of being ripped off a team that you might be finding your groove.
    - Communication breakdown happens often from an operations standpoint. You need to really be self-motivated to get answers to even the simplest things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Grow the talent you have instead of hiring contractors for the interesting work.
    - Practice what you preach about openness, especially when people are let go.
    - Make this year about the people as you proclaimed in January. Too much talent is being mishandled.

    Neutral Outlook
