    Former Employee - Associate Director - Projects in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Associate Director - Projects in Denver, CO

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, great bonus structure

    Cons

    High stress. Strong Indian management presence and culture. Very slow to pay expenses; many items get disputed. Management tends to be very controlling and will micro-manage you. The quality of customer engagements is questionable. On one engagement to which I was assigned, the Statement of Work was completely open ended leaving the customer free to dispute any delivered product for any reason and putting the boots-on-the-ground into a very difficult position vis-a-vis any change requests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off and let the seasoned employees do their jobs. Demand quality and complete statements of work before and engagement is begun.

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Pros

    If you are out of work, cant find anything else and need a job..

    Cons

    This is primarily a testing shop. Most companies see Cognizant as experienced testers regardless of your experience or background. The executives try to sell other services for Cognizant but are rarely successful due to the company's perception.
    Most employees in US are managers and above. Testers are frequently brought in from India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell more quality work, not just testing services. Hire people who can help you sell quality work here in US
