Pros

Very transparent leadership team, Benefits, Opportunity to improve your skills, Business Development

Cons

Mid level management attitude towards employees - If you say no genuinely, you go in to their bad books, many good employees are not recognized due to unfruitful relationship with managers. Appraisal process can be better.

Advice to Management

Please try to retain current employees by providing a good appraisal process, eliminate monkey managers who does not have the right skills to do appraisal.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to work with Fortune 500 clients that add weight to your resume over time.

    Cons

    - Personal growth is a flat line unless you suck up to, or piggyback on a manager who happens to be on his way up the ladder. - True hard work is never rewarded. The performance appraisal system is a joke. The rewards and recognitions that are actually handed out are always rigged and are an eyewash. - Stingy as hell. Salaries are way below industry averages and never grow unless you manage to get promoted. If you're relocating overseas or traveling, you'll be made to share hotel rooms/ cab rides/ anything else that the company is paying for, with others. - Zero work-life balance. You're expected to slog away as much as your project requires you to. - I never felt valued as an employee or even a human being for that matter. Almost all my managers on the client's side cared about me, mentored and encouraged me more than any Cognizant manager ever did.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like billing rates, and make them feel valued as people first. That would be a good place to start.
