    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Company tries very hard to make the employees feel like they are valued. Fairly good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    People can be lost in the shuffle and there can be potentially lots of idle time while on the bench. Some projects lack direction as the PM can be somewhat green.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some work could be put in place to improving the tools that allow the culture to integrate into the company. People who are ready to be promoted should be given a compensation bump if the slots for promotion don't permit.
