Former Employee - Program Manager in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Program Manager in Chicago, IL

I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Career Growth is fast almost throughout the organization except a few bureaucratic verticals. One can get immense exposure if talented

Cons

Some pockets of the organization are bureaucratic . Because size of the large and growth rate of the company is very high , peers can be intellectually average

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appraisals should be based on talent and achievements rather than on years of experience. Stop being a South India oriented company and target profits rather than revenue.
