From a client at Sapient.
If you take the time
to understand then you take way too long and are
reprimanded, if you choose to just slam out code then the bugs
introduced are beyond count (I cannot bring myself to do
this). Of course I guess this is ok because the
iterative process is another one of their gods. I certainly
agree that all development is iterative and it should
be but recognizing it and relying on it are two
different things. Sapient will declare slammed together
code "done" under the name of iteration when the code
is in a bastard state without form, standards, or
consistency, it also still lacks thourough design, or complete
testing. But hey one scenario works and you can press the
buttons that will be used 80% of the time! But don't you
worry - when user testing starts we'll test the code
then and fix the bugs then too. If they would have at
least made an attempt to "do it right the first time"
(though we all know one most assuredly will need to go
back to do stuff) at least the bulk of it is done and
Another thing is I have never
seen such poor resource management. I have seen them
shuffle people that were novices into expert and lead
roles and then when they get into a little trouble they
scurry around looking for an expert to bail them out. If
they would just take a little time to plan things
The training here (though some comments I read were
saying this is great) it is if you count being thrown in
with little help (except for a few their leads and
architects have their favorites and God forbid if you're not
one of them) and not having the time to go to the
proper classes or even the time to research
But then again that shouldn't matter you
should be cookie cutting right? Also if it takes you the
least bit more time to learn you nothing but a
worthless $%!? and why don't you get a job for the big 6. I
know several here that are tired and looking for a job
that they can have a life away from work and I can't
One last comment, I really don't
think Sapient has any respect for people. They mistreat
their own and they mistreat anyone else that doesn't
fit into their little process. If you can't be
Sapientized you're no good. It doesn't even really matter if
you're one of the clients - unless you're the one that
holds the purse strings. I can't hardly wait until this
project is over (seems like an eternity from now) so I
can leave them behind too and as a client when I get
into the position at my company my goal is to try to
get Sapient out of all our future projects.
It's a deal. I prefer never to hear from you
again, although I know you'll be resurrected as another
identity or colon implant. I like the trailer park
comment. Actually, I can connect to the Internet from the
DSL cable hanging from the subway station sewer where
me and my cardboard house reside.
frightening. I've got a deal for you; I'll take
my opinions off this board, if you do the same with
your trash-mouth. I'm embarrassed to even exchange
messages with you. I didn't realize you could connect to
the Internet from a trailer-park.
Let me know
if we've got a deal.
Heads up everyone and lookout!!!!!!! If your not
careful you'll get socked in the face from the shit
that's flying of out sinister's mouth and asshole. He's
the smartest second-guesser and Monday morning
quarterback I've ever known and he's back! Yeap, the old
shithole for a face is back and he's smarter than ever!
He's spewing from his face everything he knows and his
technological prowess is stunning enough to block a colon! What
The past 3 responses to my post suggest that some
are experiencing the PAIN of losing 1/3 of their
portfolio value (assumming that these are just SAPE
employees whose total net worth is wrapped up in 1000
options)over the past 8 weeks.
I don't need to provide
"facts" anymore. The market is taking care of that quite
well as is reflected in recent SAPE
Seems like the "Disney effect" has run its course. See
you at $75!
I have to correct you on one thing. To assume
that Sinister has a case of herpes is to assume that
he has ever
had sex. Do you really believe that
a loser like that has ever had sex?! Well, I guess
if you include his solo
dates with "Rosey P."
Give us some facts or get lost. Give us a reason
to believe you drivel or we'll simply consider you
nothing more than a manipulative short. You're not
missed. In fact, you're pathetic and we enjoyed the peace
and quiet while you were gone.
valuable or get lost.
Sounds like they have been reduced to bashing
each other, as they have nothing to crow about
SAPE at $130? Good luck, bucko. This thing was flying
without a net for a while, but now there is no way to go
but down. And fellas, this fall is gonna hurt like a
good old Texas cuffing.
It's nice to be missed.
But to get some life back into this board, bring back
Lofty, not me.
