    Pros

    Good flexibility, great colleagues (which may not be the case for other groups)

    Stingy PTO
    Nothing new - job gets monotonous.

    Your performance review process needs a serious overhaul.

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NOTE: This applies to Cognizant Business Consulting only!

    -Lots of bench time (although you will probably lose your skill-set and mind while waiting for a project.
    -More fluid than Big 4. You can easily say no to projects you don't like. There is more autonomy and less structure than Big 4.
    -You will be better connected with leadership, but leadership at Cognizant is a loose term.

    Cons

    -IF YOU ARE A US CITIZEN, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GO WORK FOR BIG 4 OR OTHER CONSULTING FIRMS.
    -Off-shore model simply does not work. Cohort is weak. There are a few intelligent colleagues, but for the most part, you will work with cheap, outsourced labor.
    -Nearly every client I worked with hated Cognizant and were very displeased with our work.
    -Cognizant wants to be a Tier 1 company, but they are not even Tier 2!
    -Management is not supportive at all. They simply want everyone billable. CBC Healthcare was completely disorganized with some very unprofessional people.
    -I wish there was a separate review page on Glassdoor for Cognizant Business Consulting, which would be about 1.5 out of 5.

    Advice to Management

    Cognizant Business Consulting should completely dissolve. Cognizant will never ever be a consulting firm.
