    job security is there even times were not great. If wilking to work hard will be goven chance to explore new areas.

    Cons

    Leadership ppl are not inspiring enough for the team working for them. Unbearable politics, favoritism for same state ppl of leads. Managers try to know your personal matters as if intended to help later use it against thr resource.

    Advice to Management

    Qualified and well deserved leaders required and not someone who came up just bcoz he had some influence from his immediate boss. And resouces should be judged based on thrir contribution towards work and not based on their socialising skills.

    Pros

    Employee friendly overall, is stable right now and files green cards. Apart from that there is not much good to say.

    Cons

    does not care for talent, skill and hard work. Goes on years of experience. People with skill get frustrated as they do not get proper ratings and promotions. Is very bad in processes and decision making. professionalism is word that is not there in cognizant dictionary

    Advice to Management

    talented people should move up the ladder and not people with more years of experience in the same role.
