    I worked at Sapient full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can raise your voice, recreation, festival celebrations, developer involved in all design decisions. AC cab facility, timings are 8:30 to 5:30. Admin teams like office services, etc. are great, nicely managed.

    Cons

    Growth, promotions, long term projects where learning seems to be stopped for a while, but continuous support and opportunities overcome this.

    Pros

    Good company to work with. Treat well to all the employees. I really enjoyed my time over there. I will recommend everyone to join.

    Cons

    They don't have large client pool. so internal opportunities are not that much. So when they lost one client on their capital market business, they have to close down the entire business.

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

    Pros

    Company Culture, Values, Leadership, Co-Workers, Office Environment, Work-life balance, Benefits, + More.

    I have worked for SapientNitro for a year now and it has been a great experience thus far! Everyone is extremely talented, brilliant, and nice - and you will learn a ton if you decide to work here. Work-life balance is pretty good, but expect to have occasional late nights/ early mornings. As with any Ad-Agency, everything is very fast pace and extremely hands on. Sapient wants you to succeed, and leadership often checks in to see if you need anything.

    Cons

    Every day is different: although SapientNitro has an overall great work-life balance, there are definitely times where you will have a million things pile up at once. I wish there was a way to distribute tasks more evenly throughout the week. Again, this only happens about once every three weeks, but it's definitely a burden when it does (cancel dinner plans, stay late, etc.).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - it's been great.

    I worked at Sapient full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Sapient has six core values all have their own importance but i liked openness most. Flexible and employee friendly environment. you can talk to any one irrespective of his/her designation. No restriction and only expectation from company is that work should be done on time and with quality. Loved the company

    Cons

    Depending on project status might have to stretch long but you won't feel tired when inside the office
