I worked at Sapient

Pros

- Open, transparent and non hierarchical culture
- resposibilities assigned based on impact you make, not on title
- get to work with big clients on some of the most complex work
- no glass ceiling

Cons

- not a place if you cannot deal with ambiguities
- highly matrixed structure, things are not always black and white
- work hard, party hard culture, not the place you want to retire

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- get staffing to develop rounded views and not just singular focus on utilization
- allow individuals to develop specialization in areas

    - Poor internal communication aside from standard corporate propaganda
    - Work/Life balance not respected
    - Over-focus on sales rather than deliver competence
    - Adolescent 'hero culture' favored over mature standards, processes, training, mentorship
    - Not a big focus on internal investment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Balance sales with investment
    - Knock off the clubby, insular vibe among leadership, it's embarrassing and unprofessional

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Big clients. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    On some large projects, a great deal of creatives work together. This is not a bad thing, but I prefer to have a little more creative control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From my experience as an intern, the leadership seems great. The creative directors do a great job of running the creative.
