I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I work with very knowledgeable & experienced people every day, who are committed to doing the best they can for their clients & company

Cons

Organisational decisions are very much driven by the "offshore" or Indian contingent (to be fair, the Indian employee count is > 75% of Cognizant), but it doesn't translate well in Western cultures. The organisation also has teething troubles transitioning from a traditional outsourcer to a consulting-driven organisation.

The large organisation also makes career progression take longer than expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management seem to know what they want. However, middle level management isn't able to translate strategic goals into tactical goals. Thus, senior management need to spend more time in driving tactical decisions.
