    Glossy exterior, biggest disappointment of my career. Happily working for company which values experience and new ideas.

    I worked at Sapient full-time

    Pros

    Aggressive recruiting for experienced hires. Training opportunities look great (often canceled or no time due to project demands). Salary commensurate with experience. Coffee mug is nice.

    Cons

    Once inside, outsourced business model all the way. Poor candidate placement. Project Leads with no concept of positive communication, effective team dynamics nor Business understanding. No positive action from mgmt for team in distress. New ideas silenced, must commit to our-way-only approach. Poorly defined and timed deliverables built from cookie-cutter methodology are prioritized over Business needs. Open & Mentoring policies touted in Boston seem nowhere to be found.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in Leads with no people skills. Engage experienced folks or why do you hire them? Many Leads need training for harassment, discrimination, group leadership. Pay attention to what's really going on at sites. Frustrated clients should receive products skillfully sold. Employees shouldn't be fearful every day. Corp values you rave about should be true, valuable hires out the door for too many reasons. Clients need flexible, creative Leads and solutions, not rigid recipe-followers. Build projects/teams based on respect and collaboration. Hostile environments allowed at expense of employees & clients?
