    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

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