Pros

Overall great people; great company culture; very good compensation; many offices worldwide mean a lot of possibility to travel.

Cons

It can be very political: connecting with the right people within the company is vital; some times the company culture is sacrificed in the name of profits; travel schedules can be brutal.

    Pros

    The opportunity exists to move anywhere within the company. In fact there also exists the opportunity to change domains or even locations.

    Cons

    Sapient does not have enough of a creative angle and loses business because of it. The major drawback is the difficulty to hire full time staff, which results in not hiring A caliber people. This must change to get an better organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Influence some of the lost consulting angle that Miami office is missing. Its important to keep the lower level employees happy, they spread the word and help the culture.

    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.
