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

    Pros

    People are approachable. I have been fortunate to have worked with some good managers who recruited me into this organization and have learnt a lot from them.

    Cons

    Some people who have started their careers with the same company and are still continuing do not know proper work culture of how to treat their subordinates well.

    Advice to Management

    People don't leave jobs but they leave managers.while Cognizant is growing , it needs to look at the attrition and why some of its employees are leaving the firm. Even the exit interview at the moment is being handled by the junior HR admin staff which defeats the whole point of having exit interview.

    Exposure to a variety of opportunities
    Responsibility from the get go
    A good place to develop as a new starter

    Zero company culture
    No diversity whatsoever

    Low salary vs. Market rate

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and give them a sense of belonging
    Reward good performance - the beauracracy when it comes to promotions is incredibly demoralising
    Be more open to diversity; what culture there is Cognizant encourages uniformity and stifles individualism
    Treat your on-shore employees with care or they won’t stay
