I worked at Sapient as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great work/life balance, informal environment is nice, compensation is competitive, workforce is young / agile, innovative and creative.

Cons

Seem to change their minds daily about what the company wants. Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing

Advice to Management

Sapient is no longer a start-up, need to have some clearer direction about the companies goals for it's people and a more sophisticated understanding of the road ahead to make appropriate plans for today.

    I worked at Sapient as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Youthful staff, rock stars at design and development. You will work with amazing people who are experts at their craft (and hopefully are not disenfranchised yet).

    Cons

    Middle management are glorified order takers and in pursuit of whatever will keep the client happy, regardless of strategy or what's best.

    Development management is all about over promises and over budgets. No wonder they are losing work.

    Leadership is too busy arguing over resource allocation and promoting books and who knows what else.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the order takers and start living those values on the walls.

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

    Pros

    Company Culture, Values, Leadership, Co-Workers, Office Environment, Work-life balance, Benefits, + More.

    I have worked for SapientNitro for a year now and it has been a great experience thus far! Everyone is extremely talented, brilliant, and nice - and you will learn a ton if you decide to work here. Work-life balance is pretty good, but expect to have occasional late nights/ early mornings. As with any Ad-Agency, everything is very fast pace and extremely hands on. Sapient wants you to succeed, and leadership often checks in to see if you need anything.

    Cons

    Every day is different: although SapientNitro has an overall great work-life balance, there are definitely times where you will have a million things pile up at once. I wish there was a way to distribute tasks more evenly throughout the week. Again, this only happens about once every three weeks, but it's definitely a burden when it does (cancel dinner plans, stay late, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - it's been great.
