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

    Pros

    Really a great place to work. No other service based industry is as good as Sapient is. I have been associated with most of the ones like CTS, TCS, Sapient, Synechron. But this is far ahead compared to other in terms of obviously money, flesible timings(obviously adhering to client specific if you are working at client site), job satisfaction , job appreciation, etc, etc. I would like to again opt for it if it decides to spread its wings in Pune. Employee firing in case of worst time/revenue generation issue is everywhere but firing of performing employees is not here as like in other places including so called brand TCS. HR is the really one of the best here. Left Sapient because of Location issue.

    Cons

    People in admin behaves as if it is funded by them only. Cool guys you are really good for nothing. So dont try to at too smart and respect employees.
