    Nice and stable

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsWell established business. It might get rocky on some new accounts, but overall it's pretty secure and people know what they are doing - it's nice to be in such environment. They don't lock down too much though and you have a chance to make a difference. They also do properly global projects, which is rare.

    ConsA bit too corporate, but they know they are and are trying to change that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to speed up implementation of improvement ideas that you are asking your people to generate and share. It's a great initiative, you just need to keep developing it and make it stronger. It will pay back.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great clients, great work, on-going growth / transformation pains

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat people, open culture, interesting projects, competitive pay, very strong corporate values. Sapient has a unique goto market offer and has a culture of continuous innovation

    ConsSome dysfunctional UK leadership set a bad example, can work you very hard, can be very chaotic work environment. The pace of innovation is not always matched by ability to execute effectively resulting in delivery via heroes I.e. lots of chaos, over-commitment of resources and high stress. High staff churn is the consequence.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to embed respect for individuals (enabling them to effectively manage their work life balance) in how we operate so that we can retain talent and deliver even more effectively and profitably

    Worst company ever

    GSS Department (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThe drinking every Friday free on the business and being able to work from home on occassions

    ConsNo career growth, poor managers, poor leadership, awful internal processes and systems, very hire and fire attitude, for UK appalling polotics (if your not a yes person forget it)......

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the managers, listen to all the feedback and action on it - stop running a business based on weak leaders - you need strong managers and to restructure the internal admin teams - employ people with education and experience not neither - invest in decent systems!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
