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

    Pros

    International company allowing for expanding experiences

    Cons

    Arrogant account managers run the business without an ounce of knowledge about the project subject and do not consult or take advice from subject matter experts. Functional verticals are without a backbone to be sure projects are set up to succeed. Pays lowest bonus for big consulting firms. Value the United States based employees. Stop eliminating US based employees in favor of India based employees brought over on H1B for 6 month or less length projects.

    Advice to Management

    Let the subject matter experts drive the business interactions. Build a culture that values functional and project leadership expertise.
