    Pros

    good exposure to technology stack.

    Cons

    No work life balance, Hiring and firing culture , not employ friendly, joined as a fresher from a reputed college but unfortunately joining Sapient was a big mistake. life is doomed if on bench . i would advise to look for other companies which have way better work culture than Sapient.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees coz they tend to be the greatest strengths.

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology
    Smart people to work with
    Global clients to work for
    Onsite opportunity
    Global delivery exposure
    Good pay cheques
    Highly matured processes

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance
    Very tight delivery plans

    Advice to Management

    Multiple projects allocation at a time, kills joy of learning and lead to set very unrealistic expectation from employees. Eliminate partial multiple staffing of engineering resources


  8. Good culture, bad salary, direction for "Global Market" a little gloomy down the line

    Pros

    Flexible timing, good infrastructure, employee morale check activity at regular interval, WFH available, good vacation/leave policy - great, if you can plan in advance. Great for someone who wish to start/persue their career as Business analyst.

    Cons

    1. Skill set mismatch. You may get aligned to a project which doesn't match your skillset - needs to be very careful when working with your staffing partner. You may consider it as an opportunity, but give considerable thought before making up your mind.
    2. Not the best compensation in industry.
    3. Work-life balance goes for a toss and might have to take late night call - however, its very project specific.
    4. As expected, there is office politics, esp visible around appraisal time.

    Situation is really grim, esp for Global Markets, since Publicis took over the company. As Publicis is a marketing company, there is a conflict in company's direction as Global Market operate in totally different vertical. (Assuming) Sapient might be selling off Global Market wing to other company. Careful, if planning to join "Global Market"

    Advice to Management

    Pay well to your employees.
    To senior management - Put some effort in getting new business. You are already losing few big long term clients.
