    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Boston, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview involved a general behavioral interview and a case interview on the first round. Second round required travel to their headquarters. Unfortunately, I had previous commitments I could not miss on the main travel date and on the alternative date, so I was unable to go to the final round of interviews.

    I should note that throughout the process they heavily emphasized that candidates must be willing to relocate virtually anywhere, and a roughly nomadic lifestyle would be expected during the first few years. It is good that they made that clear, so as to prevent any surprises to potential candidates.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Boston, MA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I contacted a recruiter to express interest in working with Cognizant, and phone interviews were scheduled the same week. Additional video conferences at a Cognizant office were completed the following week, and I received a verbal offer within one day and a written offer within two days of the final interview. The recruiting process was efficient and seamless, but the prehire Onboarding process could use some major improvements.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewers focused primarily on understanding my process and approach with clients since this is a very process-focused role.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Cognizant collects proof of compensation (such as w-2 and recent paystubs) during the interview process, and I asked for less than a 10% increase on base. They offered slightly less than what I asked for on base salary but made it up with the incentive plan. Overall, they made a reasonable and attractive offer.
