    I worked at Sapient full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Too much work, pro if you are a workaholic
    Awesome core values, the best in the industry actually (ironically never followed)
    Good pay ( given the fact that they give you pay equivalent of 1.5 persons while taking the work of around 4 persons from you)

    Cons

    No value at all for employees, Even though I topped the trainings and got 4.5/5 in appraisal ratings, I had to opt out because well there is no use in working hard, if your work is not valued
    Very bad staffing in the project, they usually staff 5 for a project that needs 50; so literally life is sucked out of those 5
    They tend to shadow people in project for years, just to save money
    Few managers and directors think they are bureaucrats and in most cases decent hike will be given only if you have another offer
    Openness is a core value and you get threatened by a manager to be thrown out of the window by the collar just because you say the ppt he presents adds no value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've had the change to work with Sapient employees in US, UK and Canada, where Sapient is valued and one of the best employers, because they upheld the core value. Why don't you at least try to imitate it?
    Please stop paying agencies to give you " Best Employer" awards

    I have been working at Sapient

    Pros

    1. Compensation and Benefits - among the best in the Indian Software Market
    2. Technology exposure - Join as a Trainee, very good company for exposure towards leading technologies

    Cons

    1. Work life balance (in most projects) - Fixed time, fixed price projects sometimes means spending more time at work(from office or home).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sapient Leadership! Good work, keep encouraging and hiring more trainees so as to make Sapient among the top 5 Consultants in India
