I worked for Sapient for a bit over one year. I
have to agree the people make it what it is. There is
leadership throughout the company and focus on delivering
for the client. I was very impressed with both their
commitment to the client and professionalism of everyone
Sure they have some growing pains, but the caliber of
folks, education, morals, etceteras will ensure that
SAPE continues to grow at a very strong rate. You tell
me how many companies can sustain the growth rate
and success that Sapient has.
Over the long
run, Sapient will continue to be quite successful and
Now you may ask, why am I an ex-employee. Answer: The
hours. I have a family and wish to spend more time with
them. Sapient is a company for folks who wish to spend
80+ hours/week delivering to the client. I share the
same drive and passion, however only for 50 hours per
week. My family is my number one obligation.
True, there are many jr. folks at SAPE, but they
possess strong leadership skills. Those at the helm are
very intelligent and have 15-30 years of industry
experience. They focus on growing replacements within, and
with the caliber of folks, it will be
They just need to focus on folks who are put their
career first and their personal/family life second.
There are plenty of intelligent folks out there who
want this type of life style.
I still feel very
strongly they will succeed. Intelligence + career
commitment + customer focused delivery and a proven IT
methodology = success.
Please don't get me wrong. For
me, long hours are > 50/week. I don't believe SAPE
is any different than other high tec or successful
companies. Folks at Goldman, Merrill, CTP, Andersen
etceteras, also work 50-90 hours per week. That is their
culture and there are plenty of folks to feed that
For myself, 50 is my goal.
To put the "slave
driver" label on SAPE is not appropriate or fair. Those
who enjoy working those hours are a great fit and
SAPE will continue to attract those folks. Those who
don't want those hours will find other
If I could work at SAPE for 50 hrs/week, I would be
back in a moments notice. I loved the culture and
people, strong team work with a strong client focus.
Yup. It's those kinds of intelligent posts that
keep me entranced. Based on your compelling arguments,
I guess you must be the expert on valuation. You
know, anybody can be right once in a row.

diploma..."Loser" has one 'o'.
HERE IS YOUR POST "Probably many recognized it
was a bit overpriced (and probably still is based on
performance). Still a great company and a good stock, but it's
overvalued right now".
