    Pros

    flexible time, work from home option

    Cons

    Openness. Basically, they claim that openness is their one of the core values however that's not the case. Here growth is driven by relationships which means you need to please the management only

    Pros

    1. Not many rules.
    2. flexible enough.
    3. free mobile wifi access, social websites access, personal email etc

    Cons

    1. Worst leadership from sr. managers and there on
    2. not at all organized
    3. most important: Sapient is not a good compensation payer anymore. It was 5-7 years back. But not now.
    4. lot of crap people (senior management) from other companies came in to spoil the core values in sapient
    5. No transparency in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you think you are a scrap, please leave the company. If you are not capable enough, please leave the company rather than spoiling future of 1000's of people.
