    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Have a wide range of projects spanning across industries and technologies. Good learning opportunity and exposure.

    Cons

    Career progression is subjected to the visibility of your project and support from your supervisor, both of which are not much under one's control. Skills, talent, and perseverance are not quite paid off if you are at the wrong place within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    In addition to paying attention to the top and bottom lines, individual employee's contribution needs to be recognized better based on what they did in the previous cycle and not based on what you are expecting them to do in future. If employees are recognized for what they did, motivation will automatically make them fare better.
