I worked at Sapient full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

global company doing interesting work, fairly current with new technology, not afraid to take chances and trusts their people more often than not.

Cons

Work life balance is one of the worst, and salary for internal staff isn't kept competitive. The two combined lead you to doing many people's jobs and working very long hours just to keep up with steady state let alone get ahead.

Advice to Management

Invest in your internal staff the same way you invest in your external staff. While your external people are billed staff and are revenue generating, they're a bunch of people banging rocks together in a field without all the hard working internal staff making what they do possible.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work. Tons of Opportunities. Great people, great culture, great work.

    Cons

    Internal processes and operational processes are archaic, inefficient, daunting--dare i say absurd? depressing?
    You will be endlessly pestered about time cards, the hours you bill, project allocations. This happens on a weekly basis.. you twill not escape it!
