    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 !!
