    I have been working at Sapiens full-time

    Pros

    Potential for moving up with technology skills, but this is spoiled by complete lack of skills training and heavy pressure on incoming and existing from middle and upper management. Employees are bringing their own inflatable beds for overnight stints to save their jobs. Nervous and tired employees do not make a good work environment.

    Cons

    REVOLVING DOOR. Extreme pressure to the point of verbal harassment from upper management with backbiting and an unpleasant environment for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show some loyalty to employees and organize your company better for training and promotions if you want productive work.

    Pros

    An interesting market with room for new development and growth

    Cons

    Major management issues, lack of leadership, lack of infrastructure, lack of understanding of the US market.
    Difficult work environment with no support or appreciation to employees. Amateurish product, lots of quality issues that leads to discontent, dissatisfaction and ongoing confrontations with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, and appreciate their commitment to work in such an intense environment they are the most valuable assets you have. Listen to your clients and work with them.

    I worked at Sapiens full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their development center in the UK is staff with outstanding professional technology talent. Those from the former FIS, which is the product Sapiens sells, are experienced not only in the product, but also in the business that is the target for the product's sweet spot.

    Cons

    The company relies on the current albeit small client base to fund the expansion of capabilites of the product. As such, delivery is an everpresent issue and dissapoints clients, some choosing to end the relationship early in the process and the opportunity is missed. While their results in the short term may look ok, in the mid to long term, they'll be relegated to a lower tier player while their competition will steamroll them in the market with full featured products.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the product you bought with FIS to provide capabilities to meet the marketplace needs and don't wait to try to sell an "alpha/beta" product with the promise of adding the features during the engagement, using your clients money. You're behind the curve and will never get ahead of it without sacrificing some short term profitability for being a real Tier 1 player.

    Pros

    The company is evolving with change in many aspects. It is a good change. The projects are being announced, strong HR team, Israel management and India management with our talent is taking the company to next level. It is becoming employee frdly with new policies and added benefits

    Cons

    Onsite opportunities are there but not for all. When we work hard we want more recreations and relaxation . The leave policy is stringent

    Advice to Management

    The event was very motivating, please allow some work life balance
