    Professionally run company, with accountable individuals and global opportunities

    Associate Director (Current Employee)
    Teaneck, NJ

    ProsProfessionaly run company with no debt. People arevriendly, knowledgeable and accountable for thier work. Flexible work environment, with global opportunities.

    ConsPerformance Evaluation process is a shamble. Technology gurus are promoted to management, yet they exhibit no management experience. Quotas exist for promotions. I fyou are not known to executive management, it is highly likely that you will not be promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure the evaluation process, and eliminate the quotas for promotions. There are plenty of resources who are deserving of a promotion, but can't get promoted due to single digit quota promotion percentages.

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

    ProsSome really good people here who care for clients
    Good client base

    ConsAt the end of the day, it can feel like a staffing company
    Clients look at Cognizant as staffing not thought leaders
    You have to be okay with long hours and late night calls to India

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication from executives and senior-most leadership is non-existent. Wouldn't even know who our executive team was if I didn't see their names in outside news or press releases.

    awful treatment of citizen employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Teaneck, NJ

    Proswill quickly hire you to make their affirmative action numbers if you are a citizen.

    ConsOnce you are hired they will make your life miserable until you quit so they can fill the position with a hire from India coming on a visa. Cognizant HR department is full of egotistical people who could care less how you adapt to a culture of ALL Indian people. I've made complaints to HR countless times and they could care less and basically told me I'm not a good fit for the company because I cannot adapt to working India hours. Sorry I have a family and shouldn't have to work 24/7 to keep my job!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who actually care about their work not just what rating they receive at the end of the year. HR Department is awful and full of nasty mean people ready to push your question onto someone else.

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