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

    Pros

    Great exposure to new technology, client interactions, communication skill development, opportunity to lead

    Cons

    Training needs to be extensive, there should not be undue privileges to client on the employees expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for the talented, retain them. Many are leaving just because management didn't even ask them to stay. Company culture is good and people want to keep working at Cognizant, but if they feel sidelined they will start to look for other options.
