    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Performance based growth, travel opportunities, good management. Overall Cognizant is a good organisation where performance matters. Personally I am happy to be part of this organisation for the last 9 plus years.

    Cons

    Nothing much, but many areas to improve though. Performance management has improved a lot which needed changes earlier. Back in offshore, travel to office is a big problem with offices located far off from the city.

    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Pros

    - good to set up initial base
    - perfect place if you are in right team and with right manager

    Cons

    - nothing much, if you are with bad manager you are screwed.
    - most of the promotions are based on seniority and for near and dear ones. Only a few are merit based

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the middle management mess. If somebody doesn't perform start from manager rather than individual.
