    Technical interview and HR, you can get through easily if you come from another service based MNC instead of a small company. Technical would be straight forword, not that tough

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    interview process is good , very technical , so prepare your self before the interview else you may miss the opportunity. the process can go long and can be taken by multiple people on the other end of the phone. sometimes they may ask you tom come in person. manager will have his tech lead take the interview and he himself sits besides and listen to the whole interview and then decides.

    As expected, the HR low balled me with a terrible offer saying that the opportunity to work for a company like Cognizant was more important than money and they can easily get people from India on L1 visas at a much lower pay. I declined and he called back with a better offer.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was a lateral hire and hence I didn't face much of a problem with the interview. They basically asked me about my Business Analyst work with my previous employer and when I checked out with their expected answers about the role, domain etc I was pretty much through.
