    Pros

    Good work culture and cross training Good academy and trainings

    Cons

    No career growth for associate level employees Management and employee communication doesn't happen well Very poor compensation compared to competitors, May be the competitors share more profit with their employees and that's why they are in a lower rank financially than cognizant

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee growth too along with busy acquiring businesses. The company has grown handsomely , but we employees are stuck in our career path. Managers stop blaming HR and HR stop blaming managers after promotion cycle, am fed up with the dramas. we need some career progression, don't penalize our growth for the growth of the organization.
