    I have been working at Sapient full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - great culture - innovative company - smart people - good projects

    Cons

    - long hours but it depends on your project - sometimes - top-level management relies too much on email communications

    Advice to Management

    - Deliver news that are tactical and can be digested. Sometimes it feels too much talk about certain topic with really no key insights.

    I have been working at Sapient (More than 3 years)

    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
