    Company treat employees as people instead employee

    Pros

    Great company culture, people, fun atmosphere. Building right next to the back bay station, so great if you can commute that way.

    Cons

    My commute unfortunately wasn't convenient to the MBTA so the drove home in the evenings as particularly heinous.

    Pros

    Flexible Timing. Work from home.

    Cons

    Lot of difference in salary between employees at the same designation and salary level. People who bargain will be able to get very high CTC. Nitro works only on CMS domain and nothing else will be available,

    Pros

    Pay of well above industry standard, some very smart peers you will ever work and challenging projects.

    Cons

    Unethical!! Manager have too much say and one can get fired if you don't get along with your manager. There is no mechanism or process for escalating your grievances even with proof. At Sapient there is a saying, either people like us very much or they hate us. They don't promote diversity. You are lucky if you got the right project.

    The only thing you care about is money this is a place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the employees who form the most important part your company and curb the power given to managers.
