    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Boston, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online on Cognizant website for Informatica and got call from recruiter. She explained me everything like what kind of package cognizant offers and what kind job of role it would... What are the benefits offered...
    Once I agreed she scheduled 1st round of technical interview.
    Once I cleared 1st Round I had 2nd round of interview with technical Manager and 2 more Sr.Developers on Skype.

    After then I got call back from recruiter that I have cleared the interview and asked me if I am interested in the offer. I accepted the offer.

    1st Round of interview was good and interviewer asked to the point questions including few scenario based questions.

    During the 2nd Round of interview they asked almost same questions except they added few team management, organizational, as well as some more detailed technical questions on performance tuning.

    Negotiation

    Was okay not that good not that bad. because recruiter made it clear before even scheduling the interview and hiring process.

    Interview

    Applied through the regular walk--in interviews.
    The company, at least in 2010, was in a heavy growth mode. They have been outstripping the competition anyways. So they were looking for a lot of new people, especially those with big company names on their resume (to brag about it). That worked in my favor.
    Interview was mostly normal - usual Java related questions for area. Had one tech round and one HR round. Nothing extra-ordinary there.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to move from your <big-name-IT-company> to Cognizant?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation (had a particular weakness in my case, so couldn't press). Got joining bonus but no salary hike.
