    Pros

    At the core their business model is an offshore model like Satyam or Wipro with a face of US Corporation. Take it as a step up if you coming out of Wipro, Cognizant type of outfit.

    Cons

    Offshore (India) team is fairly green and have high turnover and that was evident in the product (custom code development and solution design). Staffing team & Program managers try to tailor and ship resource profile to client’s ‘taste’. Make sure you interview the candidate for your project/client and probe well.

    Work ethics – anything that works will work! Trust but Verify. It’s not always easy to be professional and objective on client engagements. What you can suggest/recommend to the client is greatly influenced by Sapient's bu$ine$$ intere$t.

    I have seen some interesting visa category manipulations. Client gets billed at US rate and poor consultant gets paid at India rate (while working within US). Hope USCIS & ICE have smart people to protect American Workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot build a brand the way your employees work in the field. Today’s employee is tomorrows client. Profit is important so does business ethics and professionalism.
