    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong customer commitment and supportive management. Growth opportunities more for long time employees compared to the new joiners. So far CTS has managed well to stay on top despite market changes

    Cons

    Obsolete and rigid appraisal system
    Slower growth for recent joiners irrespective of their capabilities and performance. Also there's a conservative mindset and people look for specific experiences rather than potential while hiring

    Advice to Management

    This company was flexible and dynamics 5 years ago but it's become more rule based and rigid
