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

    Pros

    Very well organized company and employee friendly. Never more than a month on bench, if on bench it would provide with good Training on new Technologies which would help to use that experience in the next project. Good place with benefits, career opportunities, its not just working but also have games like Back to school, Abhinav festival etc.
    Main you find everything well organized reg pay, appraisal, improving the skills. Manager, Leads, HR all are very well matured and career oriented encouragement and guidance.

    Cons

    Nothing much just that there is no long-leaves like 1 year or 2-year for studies. No cons other than this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going and Cognizant rocks !!

    Pros

    It is a very good company with lots of projects. It is a place where you can grow your career, improve your skills, get certified.

    Cons

    Not that much work personal life balance as some people might want. Some processes are unclear. They should have a clear recruitment process.

    Pros

    Cognizant is a great company. Your managers want you to succeed. And there is room for growth. So for example if you have a computer science background and your current position is not using all of those computer science skills that you have, maybe you can move into a different position that will be using all of them or advanced skills that you have. Cognizant also has some business process work so you could have come from a different background and yet work at Cognizant. Fortune companies and others who do not want to use their own IT resources need to use Cognizant. Also, Fortune companies and others who do not have the knowledge to, or cannot, solve a problem, need to use Cognizant. Cognizant far outweighs it's competitors. So especially Fortune companies need to consider Cognizant.

    Cons

    Keep in mind that Cognizant is a global company so opportunities are not always going to be available just like is the case with other technology companies. That can be very frustrating as we all need employment. And if your role depends on the client, anything can happen. However, Cognizant will try to find you another applicable position before letting you go. So despite the frustrations, 5 stars still seems appropriate.

    Pros

    Having the access to the latest software an equipment. Getting the support you need as well being updated on the latest communication about the company and market. Keeping up with our competitors is very critical in todays market. Having the ability to research what's trending to keep an edge on the market. Meeting the expectation of the market supply and demand.

    Cons

    Addressing the issues and researching for resolution. Giving the opportunity to suggest a better way of resolving an issue in a more effective way. Creating a permeate solution. Taking advantage of a opportunity of a customers or clients expectation and going above and beyond what's expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staying consistence in way of proving support and updated information on a daily base.
