    I worked at Sapient full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good career progression. Unlike the large companies in tech, you will get promoted at Sapient after 2-3 years.

    Cons

    I had to travel 80% which was not sustainable. They paid me less than average but perhaps I did not negotiate enough. Crazy work hours (I worked on public holidays, till 4am in the morning etc.) + travel every week = no work life balance. But overall, I realized that I simply did not enjoy consulting because no matter how hard you work or how well you do your job, clients always treat you worse than their own employees.

    Pros

    Culture encourages collaboration over competition. Great place to start a career. Unlimited sick days. Casual dress. I would definitely consider working there again.

    Cons

    Staffing practices are very back-door and sometimes disillusioning to junior staff (like me).
    The team/project you end up on rules your experience. I had a great experience before getting staffed on an unfriendly team.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get comfortable, always look for ways to improve. In my time there I could see leadership becoming complacent and missing the big picture. Retaining junior staff will be critical to the future of the company as veterans start to retire.

    Get a clue about developing websites if that is the service you are selling.
