A well balanced workplace

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood opportunity for newcomers to get their hands on to plum projects. Very steep exposure and learning curve. Good work-life balance. Good benefits

ConsPoor vacation/PTO days. Performance management and career planning seems very ad-hoc and knee-jerk

Advice to Senior ManagementAdd more structure to the performance management and career planning. Should not be so ad-hoc

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worse Company i never worked with so far

Associate (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsHealth insurance, On time pay.

ConsThe best thing i did that I recently resigned with cognizant. will touch base with you until you joined after that no more response from anyone. Will bring people from offshore to get more profits by paying less salaries. 1000 percent money minded company. no relationships. Joining with Cognizant is nothing but killing your life yourself. Everybody wants to get good impression by showing bad things good. If you say 'NO' you are gone. Worestttttttttttt Management.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease think about human values not how to get money. You guys do anything for Money. Worse HR departmrnt, No response to anything except how to decrease salry of employee.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bittersweet

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions

ProsFocus on sales and customer relationship encorages employees to go the extra mile and try to understand the problems faced by the clients. Medical and other benefits are nice, especially compared to most of the other outsourcing companies focusing on India

ConsSalaries are pretty low, and financial incentives are not high enough for exemplary performance. Financial juggling to inflate revenue and profit margins. There is a risk of being slotted into one industry domain, and freedom to move between domains is pretty low. Might struggle to retain associates when the markets go up again.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee Satisfaction is not really high, and financial juggling to preserve share price maybe good in the short term, but might lead to exodus when the market recovers
