    I have been working at Sapient Global Markets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Business is growing (very small bench)
    - Ability to take on additional responsibility in areas of interest
    - Flexible work/life in most cases

    Cons

    - Structure at the top is constantly changing
    - Heavy tech - not necessary a con but if you aren't interested in tech area this is not the place for you

    Advice to Management

    - Find a efficient structure and stick to it. Too much change at the top of the organization

    Senior Interactive Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient Global Markets (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Called by a recruiter, figured I'd give them a shot. Was given a lot of hoopla about how Sapient Global Markets was changing and not just being finance products since being bought out. I let them have a resume and we bounced back and forth on times for scheduling the interview.

    Interviewer/Tech lead was heavily Indian accented and I had to repeatedly ask what they were saying/asking which ended up being a bunch of standard JS/React boilerplate code (like what is a closure, or what's the difference between a container or a component, what's a promise and why would you want one. That kind of stuff). My suggestion if you really want to work here, is to go read a Medium post about "cracking the coding interviews for React/Javascript".

    Was told I'd be hearing back from someone, but never heard back after two weeks. Unprofessional, but expected this day and age.
