I worked at Sapient full-time

Pros

High salaries, easy, low expectations for creatives, very social environment, friendly people, Boston office is in a great central location, high bonus potential, travel opportunities.

Cons

Client focused work, no drive to push creativity, production budgets are not encouraged, produced nothing "book" worthy, upper management are either very techie database guys or old ad guys that were laid off looking for a paycheck.

Advice to Management

Care about your work again and everything else will work out.

    I worked at Sapient full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Higher pay than some banks
    - Working on a project means that you will have some down time

    Cons

    - Very individualistic environment
    - Travel is required, even if it doesn't make any sense
    - Mundane work
    - Lack of client interaction
    - No meaningful training or career development
    - Destructive feedback
    - A lot of company politics
    - Sales and marketing are a large part of the job. Powerpoint and Visio are main deliverables. Not sure what kind of value that provides to the client
    - Billing the client is the only thing that matters

    Advice to Management

    - Offer more guidance to the new employees
    - Take employee needs into consideration a little bit
    - Develop better managers. The current managers are not qualified to manage people.
    - Be upfront about the job descriptions during the interview process.

    Pros

    Creative, Engaging, Supporting, Unique, People-Oriented Approach

    Cons

    They have decided to focus on their creative work and let some of the other businesses die off. A plus for the company as a whole, but too bad for those of us who couldn't keep on.
