    Pros

    Great culture and approachable management in Bangalore. In consulting division, management proactively seeks feedback from employees and has a "soul".
    This is a collaborative group of people, taking initiatives to work together in solving client problems and creating value.

    Cons

    Personally, I was looking for more exciting role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work by staying focused on taking care of people, clients and employees.
    As you grow to the next level, ensure employees joining from other consulting firms, in leadership position, follow Cognizant culture so that the company culture is in place.

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cognizant's Business Consulting (CBC) is a fast growing group that provides it's employees with opportunity and its customers with a very good product. Certainly a lower cost alternative to the traditional "large" consulting companies.

    Cons

    The pay could be improved as it is on the lower end of competitive.
    CBC needs to work more closely with the various lines of business. Often they are at odds and that is not necessary. Appears that they are competing with each other. The result is that the employees are stuck in the middle trying to accommodate two masters.
    More decisions being made in India and are at times out of touch with what is happening in the local country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in sync between the various LoBs and the CBC.
