    Negotiation

    its difficult to negotiate. they have a fixed range of salaries as per the grade. so i couldn't negotiate more than 2k. more over my earlier salary was so less and it had impacted the negotiation

    Interview

    Hiring process not very complex and pretty simple. Had 4 levels of interview and were spaced at good intervals and good communication and response back. The HR team was not very honest in disclosing the current practice of Grades Vs Pay etc. So I was given a low grade for my experience. HR Team has a target to bring down the level of candidates which is not good hence candidate needs to be very clear in their negotiations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. All were reasonable questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Zürich (Switzerland)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was looking for work, saw Cognizant BA jobs on EFC, so I registered on their website. Got a call 2 days later from HR that I wasn't successful for the role that I had applied for but they liked my profile for another role - I am based in London and role is in Zurich, found HR very patient with all my questions re relocation. Had a call with a senior manager, I found the interview fairly easy and straightforward. If you know what you are talking about then you won't find it hard, there are no trick questions. I am expecting a second interview with someone on the Client Business Side.
