    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I contacted a recruiter to express interest in working with Cognizant, and phone interviews were scheduled the same week. Additional video conferences at a Cognizant office were completed the following week, and I received a verbal offer within one day and a written offer within two days of the final interview. The recruiting process was efficient and seamless, but the prehire Onboarding process could use some major improvements.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewers focused primarily on understanding my process and approach with clients since this is a very process-focused role.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Cognizant collects proof of compensation (such as w-2 and recent paystubs) during the interview process, and I asked for less than a 10% increase on base. They offered slightly less than what I asked for on base salary but made it up with the incentive plan. Overall, they made a reasonable and attractive offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on Cognizant website for Informatica and got call from recruiter. She explained me everything like what kind of package cognizant offers and what kind job of role it would... What are the benefits offered...
    Once I agreed she scheduled 1st round of technical interview.
    Once I cleared 1st Round I had 2nd round of interview with technical Manager and 2 more Sr.Developers on Skype.

    After then I got call back from recruiter that I have cleared the interview and asked me if I am interested in the offer. I accepted the offer.

    1st Round of interview was good and interviewer asked to the point questions including few scenario based questions.

    During the 2nd Round of interview they asked almost same questions except they added few team management, organizational, as well as some more detailed technical questions on performance tuning.

    Negotiation Details
    Was okay not that good not that bad. because recruiter made it clear before even scheduling the interview and hiring process.
