    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment, where people are generally empowered to make decisions and execute. Very friendly / laid back culture, good leadership at the top, with a clear vision of where the market and company are going. Truly global company (east meets west), very flexible work arrangements (built into the company DNA).

    Cons

    Lack of investment in internal process/systems, combined with outdated policies/facilities and poorly-designed technology (ironic for a tech company!), lead to an inconsistent employee experience. Also while top management is great with vision and direction, they are not mature enough to understand the need for systematic change management in such a large org. Good intentions with inconsistent execution slow down this (otherwise good) company's ability to transform.

    Advice to Management

    Put more energy and resources into executing change vs expecting people to figure it out. Invest in HR systems/processes/policies to be more consistent and competitive.

    Decent opportunities on the Business Development front. Great opportunity to learn from the company's massive global operations

    Cons

    With scale, inefficiencies & bureaucracy seems to have crept in big time. What used to be an entrepreneurial culture is now clouded by perception management and yes-sayers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on doing real innovation instead of simply doling out Wall Street talk. Take care of your employees the way you used to in the glory days.
