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

Pros

Good Work Environment, Good Co-workers.

Cons

Senior leadership lost their way to driving the growth. Employee recognition and rewards are being compromised. People policies have gone south.

Advice to Management

You were doing the right thing by focusing on your key strength "Employees". Some of the reactive policies and centralization of the approval process is taking away the core value of the company "Empowerment".

    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Immigrations support, Academy training sessions, flex hours is good.

    Cons

    Career Opportunities, Work/life balance, Culture & Values are very subjective. There are no formal checkpoints for higher visibility. Like any other company your fate is driven by your Reporting manager.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the scope of an individual by formal processes that exposes them outside of their project/account.


  2. "Tech Lead - onsite"

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

    Pros

    It has multiple location opportunity, I had some location constraint.

    Cons

    You will be technically blind and vision less, if you work in this kind of Support based Company. Most of the managers are from s/w support background. They have very basic level of knowledge mostly either on mainframe, little bit java, (may be extended new java classes – and they will say j2ee expert). They don’t have high end technical people. They never provide high end and great solutions to the clients. They just want to take money from client by just providing something. Previously I worked many Product based s/w companies with C/C++ before joining Cognizant, there I had the opportunity to learn a lot. But in Cognizant OOOOOOoo !!! This company is like collaboration of multiple companies - each account is a company here. You promotion and everything depends on how long you are working with for one account not for the company…..
     This is a company, if you just want to stay.. then its okey !!!

    Advice to Management

    Pls evaluated your managers, if they are really capable enough and how much knowledge they have to be in a company which is technology driven !!
