    Pros

    Relatively understanding of extenuating circumstances that make you late to the office or need to come in at a different than normal.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. Promises for promotion are broken, hint that you would look better to management and be more likely to be promoted if you took on A B or C role/project, oh and dont worry about it, they'll have you provide that work for 18 months to 3 years before they'll consider you for a promotion. No matter how much money you save your project, all you ever receive is a past on the back. They constantly throw more on your plate and use rhetoric such as "well so and so did this (put up with being overworked and underpaid) for 8 years before he was promoted. He also operated in the role above him's position for at least a year before that time. We all have to do it." Just cause you all did it doesnt make it a correct practice, especially in the west.

    They will tell you that they are an American Company, but the company culture and mentality is the furthest thing from it. 98% of upper management is Indian, as such their culture will trickle down.

    If you're not a minority, your not gonna be promoted. Period.

    Advice to Management

    purge the eastern mentality. Treat your employees fairly and compensate them according to their proven worth, not on their tenure.

    Promote someone before you ask them to work fully in the role above them.

    Pros

    Benefits begin the first day you start. It's next to impossible to get fired from this place. Depending on the project you will remain busy.

    Cons

    No advancement and poor quality of equipment used by employees for the job that need to be done. They expect you to do great work with outdated tools. They are very misguided as to the ways of American people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth and not "industry standard". And do what you promise people you will do for them. As a multi billion dollar company you should pay your employees that helped you get there. Learn the American way if you want do business here.

    Pros

    Lots of tools to improve your skills and lots of forum to discuss and interact with different teams in the company.

    Cognizant is family business for many..
    i dont know how many pairs i saw since i joined cognizant.. husband and wife both working together, i wonder how all get same project.. think

    Cons

    no recognition,
    supervisors dont care about your work,
    you have to keep proving that you work hard for silly peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    nothing can be done for this situation, there are many measures talked about to facilitate the discussion between managers and resources working under them..

    and no matter how hard the resource works.. manager only listens to his manager on how to promote or how to recognize.. he cannot take his own decisions.. his hands are tied... and guess even the senior manager's hands are tied... he cannot take decisions on his own... he is only told by his senior...
