I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGoog people to work with
Lots of opportunities
Transparency in salary
Good & stable CXO level leadership

ConsSome mid-level managers are too short-term oriented & partial towards favourites. These people, although present in every IT company, are the root cause of all employee misery.
