    Current Employee - Associate Technology L1 in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Sapient full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good projects, specially in the Finance sector. Salary a bit higher than that found in the average market.

    Cons

    Extremely stress full and noisy environments. Seen employees work 22-24 hrs at a stretch. For e.g., Directors/Managers generally try to conclude the deals with clients by saying that they will deliver 6 months projects in 2 months time. Onsite opportunities relatively less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize Bench resources

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Recently got acquired by Publicis. Probable changes in policies.
