I worked at Sapient full-time

Pros

There are some really smart people that work here and they earn the trust of some great clients. One can gain exposure to large clients and work on some complex projects. There is a lot of strategic thinking and people are expected to take responsibility for their own work.

Cons

There seems to be quite a variance between the different offices. The leadership, quality of work and overall vibe seems to be more polished in some rather than others. At times, it could feel like two totally different companies depending on the team you were working with. It could also be frustrating to work in an office that seems more like the wild west, when you are exposed to other offices that seem to have it "more together."

Expect to work long hours, just like at any agency. In some cases, there is no end in sight. They use a resourcing tool and there were times I was 200% allocated -- which doesn't make a ton of sense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Assess the office dynamics, review resourcing allocation management.

    Great place to work. Tons of Opportunities. Red Tape and internal processes are the achilles heel of this great company.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Tons of Opportunities. Great people, great culture, great work.

    Cons

    Internal processes and operational processes are archaic, inefficient, daunting--dare i say absurd? depressing?
    You will be endlessly pestered about time cards, the hours you bill, project allocations. This happens on a weekly basis.. you twill not escape it!
