It is a fantastic company to work for, but nature of industry means work life balance is shot

Senior Manager, Business Consulting (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

Pros- Company values and culture. Management truly promote and recognize people for upholding company values and they are not just words.
- Management respect the employees and value talent. Outstanding performance is always recognised.
- Bonus schemes are equitable
- Good opportunities to grow as well as work in different areas as part of your growth targets. Feedback is encouraged, though in practice on busy teams, this may not always work.

Cons- Work life balance is poor, although this seems to be the general trend in the technology industry with a 24*7 work cycle.
- If you are manager or above forget you can enjoy holidays in peace, you have to be available for conf calls and respond to emails. This does mean that you do not truly unwind on holiday.
- Majority of the delivery staff is based in India. High staff turnover in the country for most companies means Sapient keeps this group more coddled and appeased than local staff. This does lead to delivery and working relationship with client, challenges, as India office may often dictate terms in how a project gets delivered

Advice to Senior Management- Do develop and take care of staff in India, as they are key component of GDD model, but not such that they dictate terms on how projects are delivered. Leadership of projects should always be local to the client.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
