    Pros

    Sapient was one of the few companies in India which had a culture of its own. They had a flat hierarchy where you wouldn't know if you're sitting next to a director or a VP. All this has changed.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance If you're willing to let go of every aspect of your personal life, join Sapient. You'll be asked to complete shocking amount of work within unreasonable deadlines, you'll end up staying nights, working on weekends and start having nightmares about your job at night. Location If you're joining Sapient because of Noida location, don't. They'll either shift you to Gurgaon office just before joining or within a month of your joining. And if you keep insisting on Noida office, be prepared to stay on bench and a poor performance rating since they do not have much going on at Noida, it is just to lure in potential candidates from east Delhi and Noida location. They'll lie to your face with a smile, but always remember it's a trap. Most of their senior management - VPs, directors, senior managers are staying at Gurgaon - so the Noida office seems to have no future. Culture Sapient was one of the few companies in India which had a culture of its own. They had a flat hierarchy where you wouldn't know if you're sitting next to a director or a VP. All this has changed. They haven't been able to recruit the right set of people for the past couple of years and now you'll see managers and senior managers in the company who'll put their title right into your face. So, one reason which made this company stand apart from the crowd, is no longer there. Salary Sapient is believed to provide one of the best salaries in the industry. While this is debatable, this have been true for many people I know. So, while joining, you'll be able to get a better salary than most of the other companies. But they'll balance it out over the next 2-4 years. Even if your performance is excellent and you have been getting good ranking and ratings consistently, they'll keep your package within check. So if for your title, their package slab is between say 5-10 lacs and you join at 9.5 lacs, and someone else joined at 6. You'll both have a package of around 10 within 2 years till you outgrow your current role, unless of course you're good at licking butts.

    I have been working at Sapient full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -People: The crowd here is awesome.Its helping, polite and considerate. Seniors too are understanding and almost everyone is approachable.Almost everyone is young and active. -Salary: They pay at par with present industry standards and hikes are okay. -Learning opportunities:They recruit the best to train you. You can learn from peers too.

    Cons

    -Too much focus on showing itself different from its competitors -Openness is a core value here but sometimes too much of it intrudes in your privacy -Personal growth requires huge efforts from individual. After training you need to compete among your peers to get selected for any project and grow. -Opportunities are scant and monotonous -Work life balance is hard to maintain. People have left this company for this reason more than anything else. Good for single freshers though. This also explains the large number of fresh graduates hired each year.

    Advice to Management

    Give more chance to people to grow. Reduce the burden of bond on freshers

    I have been working at Sapient full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Best part of this company is its HR department (People Success), Hiring team and Office services. Very helpful and quick response to the problems. - Get cross trained to tools like Adobe CQ5, Hybris etc. - Adhere to its core values. Very open and flexible to work hours or WFH if you are on a project. - Onsite opportunities depends on the project and the span would be short like 1 to 3 months mostly. - Good learning experience as you'll get to work on a project from scratch mostly.

    Cons

    - Works mostly on CMS (Content Management System) which are proprietary e-eCommerce tools. - Hard time getting a project if you belong to Generic technology like Java or .net. - Internal interviews for projects which normally gets hard to crack. - No facilities like free cab, free parking and free meals. - Poor Work life balance if your project is at critical stage. Late night work and weekend workings are normal.

    Advice to Management

    Recently got acquired by Publicis. Probable changes in policies.
