I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Its a big IT consulting company with a reputed name. Its good to start as you will get a good exposure of industry and you can learn alot.

Cons

There is a lot of politics in the company. I think as the company grows it forgets its employees. Its doing great if u see from outside. If you work here and you want to grow you need to learn politics and should know how to play with minds.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Normalization is the worst thing. Remove it. Give employees what they deserve because employees are giving you what you want.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work with good clients. Option to go abroad. Option to apply for US green card. Good relocation reimbursement.

    Cons

    While moving from one project to other, your previous history gets lost and you don't get good rating and hampers your performance appraisal. Same salary when person returns back from spending long time abroad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a people manager, who remains with a person as supervisor for long time and doesn't change, this is specially in verticals. Also give good salary when person return back after long time spending abroad.
