    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid to do nothing. I literally worked there for a year and a half and got paid to sit at home and play video games, travel around on company expense, and walk around the outsourcing companies acting like I did something. Hence the term role- (an actor in a corporation)

    Cons

    After you get bored of sitting at home you won't have anything to put on your resume. Thus, making it impossible to get hired by another company unless they hire actors as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing for managers, as long as companies do not want new programs and continue to outsource.
    Advice to shareholders- be careful where you invest. Numbers are a symptom not a solution.
