    I have been working at Sapient full-time

    Pros

    great culture; great office - if you get to work at the home office. great perks when you are in the office. lots of resources for growth (lynda.com, harvard mentor manager, vox, Tap Sessions, etc). Flexible on time (no one really cares when you come or leave - as long as you get your work done).

    Cons

    Much of the junior staff is overworked, underpaid, and undervalued. Difficult to make the next leap for salary and career advancement. Clients can be difficult and senior management will always take their side vs. yours.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff fairly and promote fairly based on the work and their value
