You should know, when,how and whom to talk to your ideas... Else, you will find , nextbday, all your ideas published with your managers name on it!!!
You will be extremely successful, if you know : how to make "clien"t happy and increase revenues

Client is important .... But not everything!!! Do not measure success of a person solely based on what clinrt says or how much person contributed towards new revennue generation!!!

    Pros

    - great leadership at the top with somewhat open policies
    - one of the best pay masters in the industry
    - encourages innovation

    Cons

    - performance management process is not that effective
    - not much of employee-focus initiatives or encouragement happens like in Google, Amazon, Adobe etc..
    - innovation are encouraged, however the incubation and execution of ideas are weak
    - too much focus on growth and competition

    Advice to Management

    - I think Cognizant would do really good if they define employee-centric policies wherein they encourage and empower new comers, yet back-up with the veteran mentors. Mentorship and accelerated executive program is what I think is grossly missing in Cognizant. If they need to be successful, then they must start identifying and grooming talent from within and that too they have to start from Middle Management and not at the Top Management level
