    Pros

    They teach you everything you need to know to do your job and everyone is very supportive. Additionally they have a comprehensive online learning suite so you can learn most anything you want.

    Cons

    Vertical advancement can be challenging I feel. I also think that working at a client site I feel more like an employee of the client than an employee of Cognizant (granted I am not sure this is that much of a con, but had to say it.
