    Pros

    You can't find a more well-regarded company that actually deserves the publicity it gets.

    You'll work on cutting edge projects / solve important issues which will challenge your intellectual abilities

    You'll see CEO everyday and you'll admire how he leads the company. They are brilliant, crazy, low key but very passionate, and Friendly.

    Your pay will typically be competitively proportional to your skills set.

    The company is lithe - if you're fortunate, you won't have a micromanager boss - but don't get me wrong - you'll work a LOT.

    Cons

    Your initial Years are very important for your career in Cigniti, and it will affect how you're viewed, and your abilities, if they are not good then don't expect to get high ratings or hike or promotions
    The workload is huge
    The commute is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    The sturdy expansion is something that should continue to occur moving forward.

    Pros

    I could not elaborate much on this as I'm working at client's place as a contractor through this company and I don't think there will be any pros with this company since they breached the contractor agreement without paying on time.

    Cons

    Looks to me a shady consulting company since there are payment issues who ever working as a contractor through them and I'm one of the victim. You've to follow up for payment zillion times. Stay away with this company if you come across any contracting opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management need to make sure all the contract employees are getting paid on time, otherwise the reputation of the company will get spoiled in a shorter period.

    Pros

    * Good people
    * Flexible timings
    * If you are deployed in good projects, you can learn some good technologies.

    Cons

    * No matter whatsoever your skills are, they will put you in any place irrespective of skills.
    * Cafeteria is worst. No tea, coffee of even average quality.
    * Late night work hours.
    * Lack of appreciation
    * No leave/people management.
    * A lot discrimination if you are not from Andra/
    Telangana

    Advice to Management

    Advice your resource management group to deploy people based upon their skills set, make proper use of good resources. Limit the internal politics.

    Pros

    Lots of young teams with so much of energy
    Bought good leaders outside the app labs zone too
    Highly sales driven
    Young Senior leaders
    Aspiration to become a great billion dollar company
    join here for a quick exp on your CV

    Cons

    hardcore sales and marketing hype led organization trying to prove
    heavy solutions team with no focus. head of sales is a big time travel buff and runs the teams like it is an adventure club. see theri facebook and blogs. solution teams travel across the world for no reason. such a waste of shareholder wealth for their exisiting situation of funding. for any sales pursuit big teams travel and drain the money. results paltry revenues.
    Operations sucks with no right policies or people empowerment. extremely slow moving. can't take decisions on time.
    anybody can do anything in this company. sales does delivery, and delivery does sales.
    Largest visa abuse. Waiting for one big disaster.
    no respect for talent. anyone can be fired for no reason. delivery organization breaks up in the for no reason. high politics.
    two companies in the name of one company. two email ids. one company leader is a maniac who has no respect for his teams. shouts and disrespects them on calls and meetings. micromanages slides, solutions and his teams personal time also. recently fired his VP, AVP, and others for no reason
    many other things that needs cleaning up before anyone thinks of joining this organisation.

    Advice to Management

    stop traveling like you are a tourist company and save money for future business
    reflect why you bought people into key roles in the first place into your organisaton and what are you doing with them now
    ask why people not required to bill are billing and who are expected to bill are sitting on bench
    stop selfying. share communication about teams and not your selves on marketing media
    stop visa abuse
    finally stop dreaming that you can become a world class billion dollar company without building worldclass teams and infrastructure
    remove regional politics or those responsible for it
    -from a well wisher.

    Pros

    The junior staff is a high energy team with lot of aspiration and eager to learn and deliver. They are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Management is highly political. Most of them are old-school, lethargic and unethical. The management encourages poor behaviour and unethical and illegal actions.

    Advice to Management

    Get real.

    Pros

    I am still thinking what could I fill here. Maybe if you are from a bigger organisation you get paid more that is the only advantage

    Cons

    Let me start :
    Ask the HR for policies, they are never communicated to employees. It rests on their desktop
    Regional biased leadership with no thought leadership involved.
    God save the marketing team who are expected to sell a defective product in a cut throat original store
    Much like many other organisations, you can butter your way up the professional ladder.
    if you happen to be from down south, you are one lucky guy.
    if you happen to be an OK looking girl, everyone from juniors to senior leadership will stalk you to death.
    There is a strong feeling among employees that even this org will be sold like AppLabs

    Advice to Management

    Please concentrate on people development and make more leaders.
    Communication is the biggest barrier among your people. They don't want to talk. When they do, you will be lost in their words. Train them how to sell themselves and create a brand image. Massive hiring last year was a bad move and now face the repercussions.
