I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

you can learn Management skills very quickly after spending 5 years with them i can strongly tell you wil become one of the good leader in any organization. Received bonus even in recession between 2008 to 20012. comparative other competitors like TCS, Infy, wipro employees get good respect and proper treatment from higher management.

Cons

getting long term projects are luck, if you get it you can spend 3 to 4 years in one location. Bad 401k plan, you will loose your technical ability once you enter in this company. this company is good if you want to stay with managing client, sending work to offshore, projects estimation but if you want to prove your technical skills this is not the best place. defnetly you should be ready to work more than 10 hours & weekends without paying aditional hours other wise don't join this company.

    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.
