    Pros

    The company is open, and its reflected in the culture - no cubicles, you can talk directly to anyone in the hierarchy, and the hierarchy is not very strict as well. You have flexible working, and option to work from home when required. Compensation is also good compared to other players in the industry, and the average hike given every year is also good in comparison to the average of other companies. Promotion depends on the kind of project you are in! (you have to be in a good revenue generating project - sounds crappy, but is true, but never understood why - when you really do not have much control over this). Promotion also depends on your supervisor. The good thing is that you can decide your supervisor. The leadership vision is good on growing the organizational revenue. Overall office culture is good

    Cons

    Leadership is less concerned on growth of people - especially when it comes to skill development and personal ambitions. Once you are put on a skill set, you have no way to get out of it to learn and work on another skill set. So you work in silos of technology stack. You have to quit the company to foray into other skill sets. Core technology is grossly neglected - the work is somehow completed - not necessarily the best way - even when you have skilled people available. Even when the overall work culture is good, there may be projects where you will work day and night and hardly have any work-life balance. Although company expects you to be paid for working on weekends, Projects managers grossly neglect this fact to save on project costs. Promotion and compensation for employees who have stayed for long is less when compared to new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that people of good skill set get paid well when compared to the new hires. Compensation is not the only thing that is important - also focus on the skill development of employees. Don't make people bound to technology silos (SCG) and stop people from learning skills in another silo - people should be allowed to move between SCGs. People have personal ambition of making good money -when in IT companies, people expect to travel on mid and long term assignments and gain some money to make their future secure - this is a grossly neglected thing and should be given importance. Don't bump in too many Managers and Sr. Managers into a single project (even when they are working in partials) it creates a lot of noise and no work actually gets done. Make promotions and compensation as a recognition tool for skilled people, who have stayed with company for long. Focus on technology - Sapient still has no initiative to participate in open source or develop its own shared repository where code can be shared between projects. Every project struggles to do the same broiler plate stuff which other projects have done. And because of lack of time - every time it is done in a crappy way.
