    after hours and closing

    Love that large uptick/volume at 3:45pm. Without that we would have closed around 5.50... so after hours being 5.71 shows a good jump (4%).

    • Wow, Jeff Oberg a VP?!?!?! I remember him as a brand new APM. Things sure move right along in the big show.

    • This dialogue has run its course. Can we get back to the stock?

    • can you point to some msg numbers? all i really got was sarcastic remarks. as their voluntary turnover appears to still remain high but trending lower, personally, i would like to know this. this gets to their ability to execute and actually complete the work they committed to without blowing profitability (because of transitions and handoffs).

    • Ya know, it's possible for a project to miserably fail, but still have people who did excellent work on it.

    • There are some great things about working at Sapient. For example, you get the change to listen to Jerry Greenberg, the Harvard College graduate turned CEO, talk at great length about economics. His absolute ignorance about microeconomics and macroeconomics is a proof by contradiction of the hypothesis that all Harvard College graduates are intelligent.

    • "well, this thread was originally started by me. is there no one that is going to tell me why someone would want to work at SAPE? no one has come forward and really defended that SAPE is a great place to work..."

      I think you've gotten solid answers over and over. They just don't seem to be the answers you want to hear. The lack of defense as a great place to work is deafening...

    • >>Also, from what i see, there have been quite a number of screwup projects whereas companies are now re-evaluating the actual benefit. we're really only been seeing offshoring of IT for about 3 years now

      Sapient has screwed up plenty of financial services projects over the past 3 years, in particular the Chase Manhattan - Brown and Company on-line brokerage project. That screwup cost Chase Manhattan & Brown & Company 8 million dollars. It wasn't done offshore. It was done in Cambridge , Massachusetts. And , Amy Shah and Jeff Oberg both got promoted to Sapient Vice President for their great work on the Chase Manhattan - Brown and Company online brokerage system.

    • Number 5: 1:00 am conference calls to Bombay beats sleep any day

      Mumber 4: The dot coms are coming back and I can retire at the age of 40!

      Number 3: I like going deep into credit card debt waiting for my expenses to be reimbursed

      Number 2: Frequent flyer miles

      And the number one reason for working at Sapient: Life? What life?

    • Hey, I hear you get to work an average of 15 hours per day including weekends. Man! Your life will rock. Of course its a great place to work.

    • well, this thread was originally started by me. is there no one that is going to tell me why someone would want to work at SAPE? no one has come forward and really defended that SAPE is a great place to work...

      i'm not trying to be an ass here. i just really want to know if there is something there that i should see.
