    Pros

    Freedom to be different

    Focus is customer and delivery. Once a contract is undertaken it will be delivered to satisfaction even if it means a loss. Gives enormous pride when you talk to a customer.

    Culturally diverse
    Visionary CEO

    Cons

    Performance Appraisal not very objective and very much dependent on whims/limitations of supervisors, though this is being corrected.
    Growth is not uniform across centers for same performance levels
    Salary is not very high compared to Industry Best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More walls are coming up in recent years in the name of specialization. Make it possible for employees to move across areas of specialization instead of having a lock on them. These walls are hurting cognizant's name within the employee group as a place where there is opportunity for anyone who is willing..
