    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1) Standard company and performed well during recessions in past decade and performance above peers.
    2) Good place to start your career, as Cognizant wont tie you up with a bond, like other companies do.
    3) Reasonably good opportunities for onsite travel which have been the case of past decade or so.
    4) Good Senior management who are futuristic in thinking and kept the growth engines revving for the company till date.
    5) Variable pay as percentage of CTC is lesser than other companies, and also paid promised if not more than promised incentive all through these years.

    Cons

    1) As the no. of people grow in the company, quality of employee care decreased
    2) Not a great pay master, either in initial offers or hikes.
    3) People with technical background is given a back seat, while laying red carpet to project mgmt track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Cognizant should attract good technical people by giving equal pay, good hikes and rewarding career path.
    2) Cognizant should invest in Technology research more
