  1. Good company. Seemed like an irritating and unknown process for new hires.

    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and you're surrounded by brilliant people. Everyone is willing to help you and share their experience with you.

    Cons

    It's disorganized in terms of the new hire process. I kind of felt like I was going in a circle for a first few months of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe you can do something to help the new hires better transition into their new roles. Currently, the process, minus the orientation is very bumpy and confusing.

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

    Pros

    Cognizant has a thoughtful and complete bonus process that weighs many factors when determining annual bonus amounts for employees. There is much transparency leading up to the communication of bonuses

    Cons

    It is mostly an all for one approach where bonuses ranges are determined by the overall company performance, not at the organizational or individual level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more latitude to Directors and VP's to be able to alter the bonus payouts for the individuals on their team. Attempt to stop the practice of people sharing their bonus percentage attainments as this makes it harder to adjust individual attainments.
