What is health insurance like at CognitiveScale?

Pros

There was free lunch, snacks, and drinks, but now everything is stoped. Usual Medical benefits, Work-From-Home option. Good office premice.

Cons

They had two rounds of layoffs and shamelessly started hiring back in just a month. The first one was in June 2019 and They almost hired-back the number of employees they let go by August 2019. Recently they had Salary deferments, furlough, and layoff round due to COVID 19 situation(March 2019) and now they have started the recruitment process in India without reversing deferments. It is like you cut the salaries of 50 people to hire 10 more people. They promised employees that they will reverse the deferments before hiring. This company and its management are seriously lacking ethics. Not at all people-centric, and not having the value of its employees.

Advice to Management

Gain the trust of your own people, that is what you need right now. Only your employees can help you to achieve your goals.

What are perks and other benefits like at CognitiveScale?

Pros

Interesting field, decent benefits, catered lunch, AMAZING people overall.

Cons

Also amazing is how none of this amounts to a great place to work. The stress and pace are unbelievable. I found myself working most nights and weekends with little more than a pat on the back, only to have it all scrapped constantly. The lack of focus is such a real problem that there is no facet of the company it doesn't affect. As a result, it becomes all fluff, no substance. Truly a shame. There are countless good ideas in this ship, but nobody to steer it away from the iceberg of empty promises.

Advice to Management

What can be said that hasn't already a million times? Focus. Focus your expertise, even if it is just down to ONE product. Start pleasing the customers instead of the investors. Trust your employees. You hired them for a reason.
