    Pros

    good leadership. great benefits and compensation. Company is growing really well and hence there are great opportunities within the organisation. Great global presence. In the last decade, it has left behind every other competitor and grown at a phenomenon rate. Poised to be a tier 1 s/w service provider globally.

    Cons

    like in any other company, growth and promotion is linked to your manager

    Cognizant has lost the art of being nimble and responsive.Higher company growth is coming at cost of lower salary and promotions for employees.

    Pros

    Innovation and independence and key to cognizant and to their culture. This allows you to be creative and have the full backing of senior leadership.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons. They are a fast growing organisation and so it can be hard to see their future. They seem to be transitioning into new areas from the old BPO which is exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up and speed up internal systems.
