SENIOR ART DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 17, 2018
The merger between Sapient and Razorfish was anything but smooth. The integration of employees was non-existent. Massive rolling layoffs. Huge gaps between upper management. Systems not followed, clients lost. It was a shame as the teams and culture at Sapient was tight -knit, hard working and fun. The people were truly some of the best and brightest I've ever worked with, but the structure and moral crashed with the merger.

...but compensation tends to lag behind competitors. The office is one of the most diverse in the organization and has great projects originated there.
Management in general is good, though your People Manager maybe located elsewhere in the company. That isn't so much an issue for most but just be aware. Travel for projects can be intensive depending on the account but generally it's not onerous. Publicis isn't the best owner and Sapient was a better company prior to being acquired in my opinion.

Jump at the chance to work with SR because the people are immensely talented and you'll learn a lot. Although the company has gone through several mergers and even layoffs this year, the managers are outstanding at their crafts and you'll learn a lot. Technology, AI and Data Analytics are valued more than creativity.
Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – July 29, 2018
Have been with this company for a long time. The company provides opportunities to grow in your career and has flexible hours. The company needs to improve on scope and resource planning and allocation to avoid long working hours and excessive movement of resources between different teams.
Flexible, growth oppurtunities
not good health benefits, not good resource planning and allocations
Marketing Analyst (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 22, 2018
It was okay. Flexibility, benefits, time off, culture was all amazing. Work we were actually doing and management was not promoting growth. I wish that I could've had an awesome manager and that probably would've changed things.

Publicis.Sapient is a fast growing company and in my tenure of 10 years I have learned lot of things their and always be thankful to my supervisors for the same. Overall its has a great workplace culture...
Associate Director, Project Management (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 28, 2018
A very good place where folks are given opportunities to work on cutting edge technology projects and work with huge Fortune 500 companies. Project timelines are a bit aggressive but tons of learning to manage such fast paced programs.
Senior Designer (Current Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – May 24, 2018
They provide decent starting pay and (as long as the company as a whole is performing well) give small raises to everyone annually. It is hard to get a promotion or ask for a decent raise, though. The company also keeps merging with other huge companies, so the name and top management/structure are constantly changing. Hours can be long at times, typical to Agency life. The culture can be fun in some departments, and cold in others.
Revenue Analyst (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 7, 2018
It's a good company but it's a frankenstein. We absorb and merge with companies but don't onboard the new employees well nor do we assuage the concerns of existing employees. Your experience is completely dependent on your department and manager. But overall, morale is low and it effects everything.
Free fruit and beverages, the occasional company party, will learn a lot and can grow here. Also can work in different offices
Unclear expectations, Low Morale, Pays less than competitors
Search Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 5, 2018
This company is very fast-paced and forward-thinking, and I have learned so much in my time here. The amazing talent is undoubtedly what drives the success of SapientRazorfish. Unfortunately the company merge rocked the culture and leadership a bit, and vertical movement is slow.
Social Media Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 7, 2018
I worked as the only high school intern there but I was treated fairly well and I learned about the social media marketing business. My co-workers were all mostly friendly and willing to give instruction when needed.
Tech Lead (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 4, 2018
Due to multiple mergers the company has lost it's identity.
In line with that: -I don't know who my HR rep is. -My Career Manager has cancelled every scheduled meeting (reoccurring biweekly) that we were supposed to have to date. -If you get stuck on the bench, you're most likely going to be terminated as most roles are being filled with cheaper positions out of India.
Unfortunately, I don't have anything positive to say at this time.
Marketing Strategy & Analysis Manager (Contractor) (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – December 15, 2017
Very cut throat, brutal hours, good pay, smart people, interesting projects, sink or swim, no onboarding, no work life balance, funny ppl, lots of drinking, dont be fooled by the game room--its a conference room in disguise
