I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Strong business roadmap and well positioned for growth in near term. Constant endevaors to venture out in upcoming and trending technology areas like Social media, analytics etc. Much better place to work and good paymaster for niche skills as compared to its peers like Infosys, TCS etc.

Cons

Little or no attention to employees personal and professional development. Employees are expected to upgrade and acquire new technologies during project down time or during their personal time. Typical services company mindset with prime focus on employees billing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More management engagement needed at individual business units level. Most of the employees are in dark in terms of management vision and strategy.

    Pros

    1. Good company with normal pay as per industry standard
    2. Good process oriented company
    3. Employee friendly in india but not in US.

    Cons

    1. Sometimes project decisions cannot be falling on you. Rather manager takes his liberty depending on its billing rate. Meaning.. if there is a project specific to your profile, if your manager has another project which is not that specific but billing rate is better, he may hide this and force you to fall in project which will benefit the company.. even if it is for shorter term.
    2. If client requires to work in weekends, sometimes, manager may request at the beginning but forces in due course.
