Company with great potential but zero diversity

Project Manager (Current Employee) Teaneck, NJ

ProsCognizant is a place where there is a lot of potential for growth. Being one of the youngest software consulting firms the growth and potential within the organization is tremendrous. If you have the right manager then the benefits are great and you can really achieve a fantastic work-life balance.

ConsCross-cultural diversity is dismal - and there is no easy way to say this but the company feels like an Indian company that just has a sales office in the US. Inter-departmental politics hamper work big time but then I dont think it is different in any other similar organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on recruiting local talent instead of relying purely on Indian consultants and resources. Also please address inter-departmental conflicts early on to avoid feuding that ultimately results in dirty laundry being aired in public
