Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Approves of CEO

Pros

Decent pay package compared to IT Service companies.
Nice opportunity for those who want to experience diff projects in financial markets - has very strong financial clientele
Abundant learning facilities in the company - Safari, Innerworkings, Company trainings, sponsored Certifications etc.
You can get promoted really fast if you are doing well and also a bit lucky to get a high
revenue project to work on.

Cons

Not so great pay packages compared to I-banks/hedge funds
Depending on your project, it may get really hectic if you get into small FTFP projects.
Being a consulting firm - things like helping others grow, getting more business, having nice relationships overall to get good 360 degree feedback are as important as your day to day work - this might frustrate some people who very strictly believe in "actions speak louder than words".

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

    Pros

    Good leave policy,transport,good salary when compared to most of the companies of NCR

    Cons

    The future of Sapient Global Markets looks bleak.Since the takeover by Publicis the focus of the group has been only on Sapient Nitro.Thats the reason no new project has come in Global markets for the last 2 years.Current projects also getting downsized.Add to that the high billing rates of Sapient and things look really bad.
    Also can't understand why so much hiring happened in 2016 when you had no projects.As a result company has fired more than 700 people in the last 2-3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people if you have no projects in pipeline.
