    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Pros

    Competition is lightweight. Most people there are directly from India & have good computer skills but not technical skills or people skills. There are some thoro ones but few.

    Cons

    Pay is low. Favoritism with people from India. Not really a diverse company. A few Whites a handful of Blacks and Latino and 90% Indian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling that lie of needing more skilled workers in the U.S. Most people who work in Teaneck aren't skilled and aren't doing computer engineering.
