    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the offshoring market. Was treated fairly from a compensation perspective. Believe the exec leadership has created a differentiated, offshoring model and does have a good strategy in place to drive near term growth.

    Cons

    Cognizant positions itself as a global IT company with its roots in the USA. In reality, it is just a better packaged Indian outsourcing / offshoring company that happens to be headquartered in the USA from a financial reporting and governance perspective. Most day-to-day / operations and service development decisions are driven from and made in India.

    As a "local" (aka non Indian), there is no employee loyalty. They will use you and lose you. Once India has pulled all the knowledge they can from you and believes they can do the work themselves, you will be discarded unless you are in a direct billing or sales role.

    Advice to Management

    If Cognizant is to be truly a global company (Accenture-like), you will need to break the India strangle hold on the company. Hard to be truly global when execs in India are making calls w/o being in the local markets.
