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

    Pros

    Company is growing, managers are having good time...

    Cons

    They hire people from US (mostly Indians who are 1-2 years near visa expiry) with all sort of verbal promises about green card.
    They initiate the PERM process when the time for visa expiry is less than a year. For the PERM process they will post the advertisement incorrectly so that PERM application gets audited. In the past three years they are near to 95% audit on all PERM applications.

    They do all this to send associates to India at 1/4 the package they give in US. This way they don't have to spend money for direct hiring in India and they get the creamy layer for a very low price.

    This is not the end, when they move people to India they won't pay the full lease breakage. The max is two months rent. They don't pay for relocating household items. Above all, the managers will screw your life if you raise your voice.

    Very honest advice don't join this company in US
    If you have green card or US citizen things could be different otherwise be ready to shell out money and don't expect any support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about people who work and makes money for you to achieve your revenue target. If they are gone, this company will not grow.
