I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions

Pros

-Remuneration for lateral hires is good in US
-When compared to other offshore IT vendors ,Benefits are good .
- in these tumultuous times , compared to American counterparts , Job stability is much better
-Client list is impressive and there is some quality work in niche verticals.
-Though the crowd is predominantly from south east Asia they have the ability to attract talent from NA, something that the other Indian offshore counterparts lack .
- They do Green card processing for people interested to stay in US.

Cons

- Work life balance is not honored , i think the reason for that is their onsite teams are understaffed , if they require 4 resources they will try to manage with 2
- Calls with offshore teams at night sucks big time , you are left with very little personal time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would like to see more diversity in the company

    Pros

    Plenty of projects, so no dearth of work. Good NA relocation policy. Flexibility offered to move across projects and verticals. Good training material and knowledge base in e-learning and certifications. Health benefits are good. Bench period offered between projects is good. Stock plan is good. CTSH shares are always above 20 dollars. Green card policy is good. Diversity in business is good. It is not totally dependent on any sector

    Cons

    You will Suffer from low self esteem if you are from premier league universities of India or america.
    Not proud to be with Cognizant., service industry slavery, Exploitation of people in US who are on L1 visa. Cognizant is mostly into Testing. It should rename itself to Cognizant Testing Services. In media they say that they recruit MBAs from top schools to offer them challenging roles, but those ppor chaps are made to do manual testing or maintenance crap, albeit for a higher salary. At present Cognizant is laying off people secretly in the US. It should not do like this. Instead it should sent its US associates to India in this crisis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to compete with idiot and third grade companies like Infosys and Wipro, Cognizant shud venture into products domain and compete with excellent rivals like Adobe, Google or Cisco
