    I heard that sapient loosing its brand value after acquired by publicis group. Overal my experience with sapient is bad.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not recruit people, unless really there is a requirement. Lets give a chance to candidates to face client/project interview before offering. Don't let technical people to sit/roam around the offices for long time.
