Former Employee - Associate Director in Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

a) Lot of learning opportunities - challenging projects,
b) Flexibility (if you have any personal commitments)

Cons

a) Compensation is not good - if you expect people to give solutions like Consultants then pay like one
b) Collaboration across teams is not strong

Advice to ManagementAdvice

a) Project Management track should be better defined
b) Appraisal system is totally dependent on your supervisor. For Manager and above level other senior manages should also have a say

    Pros

    Can work remotely, pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Colleagues are out for themselves, people will lie to your face - it is all about the money. You cannot trust people you work with, management can be abusive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure if you know or care, but you are burning through quality people at an extremely high rate. You may want to re-evaluate your culture -what is acceptable and what is not.

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Reasonable pay.
    - First Month is nice at a free hotel.
    - Fly you out to a new place.
    - Hiring process is the only good thing I would say.

    Cons

    - Don't promote based on value added - consider time at company more.
    - From campus training, it is great. Mix of culture and people. Then when you actually arrive at an account your co-workers will most likely be 99.9% straight from India. There will be culture shock.
    - No room for growth at some accounts.
    - You will be treated like a contractor.
    - Some useless trainings and sessions are given to fill time.
    - Some useless meetings.
    - Corporate cog.
    - Sometimes I felt discriminated against.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Make sure to give incentives to people who obviously add more value to the company.
