Manager

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions

ProsEmpowerment , Leadership , Branding , Innovation , Customer Focused.

ConsWorker gets more work , time passer moves along without much impact.

Advice to Senior ManagementAre you guys consciously thinking if Cognizant is also heading the same way as Wipro or Infosys. Ask those former employees of those 2 organizations who are currently with cognizant. You may see the trends. After working in both organizations i feel we are going the same way and falling for the same trap.

Academy Group sucks. Is there even a decent library in our offices.

Internal tools and systems arent even matured like how they where in Wipro way back in 2002 - 2003. We have too much to catch up internally.

Great Company, excellent benefits, pay and support

Director, Projects (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat assignments with tier one companies, Cognizant support structures give you a solid foundation for success. Exciting opportunities for anyone wanting to take on additional responsibilities. Great tools for individuals in the field, easy expense reporting, mobile support availability of resources are excellent. Benefits, pay and bonus continue to be a priority to the company. Company strategy has been very successful in allowing Cognizant to maintain very aggressive growth and fiscal performance goals.

ConsYou need to manage your career. Cognizant has grown very large and you need to help yourself standout! Goal setting, maintaining an active feedback with your manager and taking on additional responsibilities to help in growth opportunities are needed to achieve the highest annual ratings.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to provide methods and coaching for self-improvement, career acceleration and active feedback from management.
