I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Definitely in Technology vertical there is lot to learn depending on the project you are in. I am happy that i am in one of the good projects which helped me to learn a lot.

Cons

At times you feel that working is taking most of your time and work life balance becomes a mess. Compensation is also not encouraging. Yearly compensation cycles are not standard. Don't know when and why they change every year.

    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice Client base. Loads of projects on exciting technologies.

    Cons

    Hierarchical overkill. Lot many frustrated Senior Associates waiting to be Project Managers who speak politics as first language. Company consists of 90 percent Tamil people. Regional language is spoken at client locations in US. Would rate 0 stars on Professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Please change the way you hire people. Being Tamil shouldn't be a qualification criteria.
