Pros

Work culture is very good.
If you are a long term employee you can have flexibility to choose the kind of work you want to do.
people are professional
Robust learning management system

Cons

poor talent management or appraisal system. Not much transperancy in appraisal systems. Managers have full authority without being held accountable for giving what rating they give to an employee. For e.g Managers are given quotas of number of top/middle/bottom level performance raters.If your project gets changed or you are released from account before end-year appraisal there's high chance your ratings are going to get hampered.Top ratings would be given to someone continuiing in the project. In short performance appraisals are about what you can do for the project or the manager in the coming year rather than what you did in the past year.

Advice to Management

Fix the appraisal system

    It offer better salary than competitors. There are work from home options if client culture permits. Apart from these two, I really don't see any pros!

    Cons

    Managers care only if you are billable or not! No learning and developement programs available for emoloyees. Client happy== Cognizant happy!

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees, they are people not just "RESOURCES" like land and capital! Make managers responsible of their actions.
