    Fantastic and supportive learning environment. They trust you to get on with things, and there is very little micromanagement.

    Communications up and down the chain needs improving. The internal intranet is pitifully antiquated (but it is improving).

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications.

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable job, pays enough to survive. Some good teams and good work but typical indian outsourcing company.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. Most of the managers dont know much. Good technical folks are getting pushed to do project management work

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and do something or very soon you will loose your job too. Its a shame that company does not want to support talented people and push them out.
