    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Food, events, salary on time, good incentive to people having good relation with supervisor, infrastructure, tie up with Apollo, quick cashless facility available

    Cons

    You have to keep your supervisor happy to get good incentive, good hike and promotion. HR is just a rubber stamp with no function. They redirect your concern to supervisor directly without keeping anonymous. Short term project, if on bench look for your own project and chances that your profile will not be seen. One location very far from city where most of employees are asked to work. No one cares about growth and aspirations. You can be tagged even for junior roles.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee management. The appraisal should be universal and not based on only one review. Peer review should be considered. Ask work force management to find projects.
