Pros

Strong Culture, challenges, focus on client-satisfaction, smart people, attempt to create an environment where well-balanced life is a priority.

Cons

Expectations are high to deliver on time and under budget, which translates to potentially some stressful work and late hours.

Advice to Management

Recently met some current employees and it seems the culture is not the same or as strong as it used to be. This should be a focus because... as well as a focus on continually developing the people, without burning them out.

    Pros

    salary is ok and the sapient start week is fun but it's not reality. various software tools are available to use and purchase using the company license and they will give you a laptop to use. they do provide coffee in the breakroom and provide tea.

    Cons

    extremely long hours, poor leadership, military like culture, no regard for people and lack of adherence to company values of communication, creativity, leadership, client focused delivery, openness, people growth. The leadership constantly promotes people who don't deserve to be promoted and ignore people that do need to be promoted. Additionally, the leadership fails to step in an provide direction or even communicate to their employees. lots of politics, lots of secrecy, really information is given regarding employee performance and clients are treated as if they are not paying for the projects being delivered

    Advice to Management

    care for your employees and adhere to the values which are indoctrinated to individuals during sapient bootcamp (start). not listening or caring for individuals is a weakness of a consulting firm.
