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

    Pros

    Overall Cognizant is a good place to work with.

    Cons

    Promotions are harder nowadays at onsite due to a large no of employees competing with each other. GC has been stopped which is a big drawback for many who want to work a little more than 6 years in H1B. They have introduced new methodology of appraisal which is very difficult for many to achieve because of the mandatory certifications which need to be completed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give manager promotions to incompetent persons which will impact a lot of people working under him/her.

    Pros

    A very good company to learn emerging technologies. Good trainings are available for people who are keen to learn new things.Challenging projects.

    Cons

    Internal competitions between various departments for similar kind of project/work sometimes harm the company and it's associates.

    Advice to Management

    There should be proper mentoring at each level by senior leaders as a person goes up the ladder.Mentoring is very much required for everyone.Sometime it is understood that a person will start performing in new role without any guidance and support which result into loss for the company itself.

    Pros

    Good benefits; lots of autonomy; some great people.

    Cons

    Work harder not smarter...more people v better supporting technology a con. Administrivia keeps you in the weeds. Documentation for documentation sake; not a lot done with the data. HR documentation included...lots of documentation, including some evaluations--but not sure what if anything was ever done with it.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the people who are working so hard for you...promotion allotments are too few and demotivating.
