Pros

The culture is diverse, energetic, creative, unique, and cohesive. Everyone works together like a well-oiled machine. Very agile environment - so you know where you stand on a daily basis within your team. Extremely large growth potential. Many offices to transfer to - as well as positions to develop into.

Cons

Having the company located in all cities makes it difficult for the non-city folks. Either commute in or pay high prices to live close. Wanting to be at work - and loving the environment makes the commute or high cost of living worth it. It is a flat corporate structure - so although the company is full of people with leadership qualities - sometimes it's not clear who your superiors are.

    They are very insular and have one way of doing things.

    Fragmented organization structure and poor internal processes

    I have been working at Sapient full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture of client-focused delivery and creativity. Great though leadership and a wealth of information on advertising, digital media, and creative work

    Cons

    Extremely fragmented organization structure means a quality employment experience is oftentimes based on luck rather than skills. The staffing team doesn't seem to be able to adequately match employees to projects and roles without significant hand-holding from both project teams and individuals. Internal processes (e.g. reviews, promotions, staffing) are obfuscated by poor communications and antiquated internal systems. Even the finance team has committed several snafus in recent years around not sending out W2's for employees on time.

    Organization scaling seems to have accelerated beyond the capabilities of the current internal teams, which has taken a toll on all employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define an organization vision, and "strengthen the core" of the organization to protect the internal teams from degrading any further
