    I worked at Sapient as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Well established business. It might get rocky on some new accounts, but overall it's pretty secure and people know what they are doing - it's nice to be in such environment. They don't lock down too much though and you have a chance to make a difference. They also do properly global projects, which is rare.

    Cons

    A bit too corporate, but they know they are and are trying to change that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to speed up implementation of improvement ideas that you are asking your people to generate and share. It's a great initiative, you just need to keep developing it and make it stronger. It will pay back.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sapient.

    Interview Details

    Depending on the inteviewer this is a breeze as not many have interview skills. The lower the position applying for the easier the interview is. Be confident and it's fine. Generally you are interviewed by the manager you will be reporting to so the skills of your manager are clear in the interview - take this as a clue if you want to work here or not. Fluffy soft managers are not leaders.
