    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time

    Pros

    You can learn new technologies at your own interest.

    No more Pros. Can't make up pros for this company. I don't see any Pros.

    Cons

    No growth in career. People who manage are not fit to be manager. They are not trained the leads and they assign employees to them to manage.

    Betrayal is another name for this company.
    They have different rules for each employee.

    Life becomes monotonous after a while. No one values your work. I don't see any appreciation in 3 years of my career at cognizant even thought client is very happy.

    It's a bunch of money trying to growth with brains.

    Never recommended anyone to join this moron company.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers

    Pros

    Depends on project to project.

    Cons

    There is too much of internal politics.Company makes millions of profits and the employees are underpaid(not in my case though). Mostly every one at client places work daily 8 hours work for client and 4 hours work for cognizant. They make sure 4hours is not documented so that they dont need to pay you. There are policies for extra time and dont worry no one will every enforce them so as to not to pay you.

    Advice to Management

    See employees as people rather than resources for making money.
