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

    Pros

    Job security
    Onsite opportunities
    If you are out of one project due to low performance you will easily get new project - no firing
    You are safe even if you are low skilled

    Cons

    Very less pay as compared to market standards
    Green Card process now taking long time , forcing employees to leave USA, read PERM/I140 reviews on trakitt.com
    Unprofessional middle management - you feel embarrassed when they speak with client ( Dont know how to talk properly)
    No promotion or salary hike at onsite
    Performance managemet a joke - Just filling it for the sake of audits (CMMI Level maintance)
    Rude HR - Consider employees slaves as they know people on L1/H1 wont leave them
    Work late hours to handle offshore resources - Get calls at nights which managers force employees to take - otherwise you face actions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. When you ask for promotions you get answer that there are people waiting in line in front of you - Is this a govt organisation where donky and a horse is considered same ?- come on give promotion based on pure performance
    2. Respect resources who are working day and night at onsite to run project. They are the assets. Dont let them eaten by greedy clients and you keep showing revenues.

    Cognizant is one of the best among the biggest outsourcing companies globally; balanced with its aces and debauches.

    Pros

    Cognizant uses more experienced and efficient resources to deliver quality compared to other outsourcing companies. The top management (the CE grades) has their visions and drives better than others delivering growth and dynamism. The policies and processes are flexible when its a question of business win or profitability. The reinvestment is fueling more than other companies which is feedback looping the growth.

    Cons

    Like any other outsourcing company, Cognizant too does not hesitate to deprive resources whenever a chance found and by exploiting by every possible means. There is a nasty open scret as any other regionally dominated companies have, which nobody cares or dares to change is regional and racist lobbying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top management should be actively controlling and curbing the regional/racist lobbying. The resources should not be exploited to increase profits.
