    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Pros

    good brand name but that mis leads you. everyone here is quite happy because they are in the comfort zone. and the contractors are facing tremendous heat.

    Cons

    horrible in paying the contractors. they route you through the prefered vendors with horrible payment terms of 45 days. and no one cares whether you are paid or not. the only dissapointing part but the most important one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please be considerate while hiring. dont hire without calculations. and please dont be regionally inclined and partial. please make sure the contractors are happy just as your employees would be. after all we are also a part and contributing towards the growth of CTS.

    No opinion of CEO
