Good Company, But very bad Senior Management (India)

SAL1 (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Sapient full-time for more than a year

Pros1) Good for freshers who want to learn technologies.

Cons1) 0% work life balance. Senior managers feel employees should do what ever they asked to do. As per Managers 12 is minimum working hours. Need to work long nights, weekends with out any work life balance. They don't bother about the personal life.
2) Taking vacation is big process and need approvals all levels of managers. (Mostly managers says no)
3) Too many unnecessary Managers in a project.
4) The interest thing is some managers say, you should not join if you don't work for weekends and long nights.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Top management's mis-management leads to fire fighting all the time

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I have been working at Sapient full-time

Prosnice people and good culture, freedom to get into anything that you want to take up. you choose your growth path

ConsThe leadership still wants to operate like an entrepreneurial set up which makes no sense when the company has been talking for years about focusing on increasing scale of operation and focusing on efficiency. this does not allow any people processes to stabilize(changes almost every 6 months).

Advice to Senior ManagementWAKE UP and see the reality

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Place to work, collaborate, learn and have fun

Manager, Program Management (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Sapient full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood team, good knowledge, good projects, good exposure if you prove your worth, good pay

Conslong hours at times, sometimes there is a disconnect b/w India teams and the local Directors,Managers since the working style is very different. Due to team divisions, some teams' visibility within the organization is shunned.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it more people friendly and remove the disconnect with the delivery and the local teams.

committed to client deliver, more politics inside but you are on your own

Senior Interactive Developer (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I have been working at Sapient full-time for more than a year

Prosexcellent motivated people , nice pay , very good policies , I really don't have much to say as I am lucky and enjoyed my time in sapient without any stress but sapient is very good organization , they value custom relationship so much , and focuses on quality deliver. It helps you to grow technically , personally ..

     If you stay late , project sponsors your dinner , if you work on weekend's again project sponsors your cab, lunch/dinner/coffe/tea. Same time if you are under performing you will be rolled off .So bottom line is do well and stay reputed.

Conspolitics , for onsite/promotions you need to act over smart with your managers and above.

Advice to Senior Managementupper management is really awesome , they won't interfere with you in any bad ways .They work on policies which brings employee's more peace and happiness.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
