    Great Company, excellent benefits, pay and support

    Director, Projects (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    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.
