    Pros

    - Non-typical government contractor where you feel really connected to the company and to the Sapient way of doing projects, as opposed to just being a butt in a seat on a contract somebody has won - Very smart and fun colleagues who are very willing to share knowledge - Salary and bonus was good - The ability to take a different career path is open as long as there is billable work to be done

    Cons

    - Like any consulting firm, much of like depends on if you get on a good or not-so-good project - There is a bit of a wall between the commercial and government sides of the house and you don't really get to work on a lot of commercial stuff except in rare cases, especially on the tech side (a bit more cross-pollination for the creatives). If you are interested in doing both kinds of things, be aware of this

    Great work environment. You'll make friends and connections for life.

    Department structures very disorganized. Often your manager is MIA or works from another office

    You need to get more organized and do more to train those you claim you're interested in training and promoting.

    Benefits, good location, grooming products in the bathrooms

    Re-evaluate your entire process. Your managers have no idea about how turn client needs into functioning user experiences on the net.
