    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Good work like balance. You get to work with some good minds.

    Cons

    Much of the work is noise and not overly smart. Helps in developing a very generic skill set only. You will feel you could have utilized the initial years of your career learning more at a smaller organization or in a fast-paced environment.
