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

    Pros

    Interesting work some of the time, with (rare) opportunities to work on some very unique projects for some very cool clients. Compensation seems good for the industry, but poor if you compare it outside the marketing technology realm.

    Cons

    Work hours can be brutal depending on the project, as can travel. After the acquisition, the quality of work plummeted, and this has been clear in the rash of voluntary exits. I'm not convinced that there is an account or sales person that could sell a dollar for fifty cents.

    Advice to Management

    Buy yourselves out of Publicis or risk losing all of your talent
