    Good opportunities for growth if you are motivated; compensation not consistent; tough to get promoted

    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Pros

    * Great resources - some of the brightest I have worked with
    * Great customers
    * Great benefits
    * Good pay (if you negotiate well up-front; otherwise, don't expect to be leveled out with your peers later)

    Cons

    * Tough to get promoted. Once you hit Manager, it usually takes 3 - 5 years for promotion (at least, that is my experience as well as the experience of those that I have worked with/for)
    * Salaries are not consistent across the same level - I have seen discrepancies for those doing the same work to be as much as 40K (e.g. 80k vs 120k)
    * Company culture is non-existent - you or your account will have to make your own culture
    * Work/life balance is based on customer and your management
    * Outreach opportunities are limited and pretty much non-existent in US

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a better path for promotion. Offer more consistent salaries. Provide company culture in local markets. Provide outreach opportunities for local markets.
