Great place to get acquainted with finance industry, not great for advancement
Associate Technology Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 25, 2018
Sapient is definitely a great place to work as an entry level employee: you will get awesome opportunity to train in India for 3 months to learn fundamental knowledge of working in financial/tech industry, you will get exposure to multiple projects and companies in less than 2 years, and you will meet tons of talented, helpful people. Expect that your learning will be more breadth than depth based - that is, you will learn much about how to be a tech consultant across all aspects of the project development life cycle (requirements analysis and gathering, design, development, testing, support), but you may not necessarily become a "very good coder."
My biggest problem with the company is how hard it is for people to grow. Even if you are creating impact for client, working long hours, and being an all around great contributor, you will likely not get that raise or promotion that you've been expecting, the one that your manager says he's been "pulling teeth" to get for you.
Expand network, learn variety of skills, exposure to multiple projects and companies
Difficult to grow, lack of community culture
