    I worked at Sapient

    Pros

    - They hire very smart, competent people
    - Flat structure so you don't have a boss but rather senior managers who you can go to for advice. YOU need to take initiative as there is definitely no hand-holding there!
    - Pay for a contractor is competitive
    - People are *always* willing to help
    - Senior management trusts their Teams

    Cons

    - Dev team is in India! Bad idea!! 80% communication is lost in translation. What would take a US vendor 1 day turnaround takes India 2+ days. Its really quite ridiculous.
    - Flat org means that there is little supervision so projects can get out of hand. It is really up to the Team to alert senior management about any red flags.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The flat org chart is a great idea but you do need to take the initiative to keep in touch with the Teams working with your clients.

    I worked at Sapient full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Try as hard as I can the only thing positive I could think about my experience at Sapient is that it was steady employment.

    Cons

    This is a very frustrating company to work for if you are a UX designer. The company is drive by technology solutions which are highly non-empathetic to the end user. Much of this I feel rises from the culture of get contracts now, ask questions later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a plan, don't just wing when you get the work.
