Cognizant was great company for my carrer start up. It is one of the best company to work.
India as Junior Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 February 2017
Cognizant is a great company to work. I couldn't believe that while pursuing studies I will get opportunity to work with this company. In India Cognizant doesn't pay much to freshers and progress rate is really slow and low. But overall I learned so many things from that company.
Pros
Team building evenst, One cognizant finale, Different competition and activities
Cons
Progress rate and growth is slow and low

Good work culture with employee friendly policies
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 August 2016
Cognizant is a very good organization with lots of opportunities for all kind of people - be it with onsite aspiration or techno savvy interest. Having good and helpful management at the top, you can be rest assured about your growth.
having presence in almost all the leading countries, there are always multiple openings in projects and most of the times one will be having a choice to select a project from many.
Pay wise, Cognizant certainly has competitive pay structure and also has reputation in the market to give handsome bonus and hike.

Every workplace has its pros and cons and its the same with my previous workplace. I used to ignore the cons and focus primarily on what is essential. This way I used to feel job satisfied and peaceful.

A good company to work for
Senior Associate - Projects (Former Employee) –  Kolkata, Brussels & Zürich5 July 2016
A good company to work for, especially if you are interested in global opportunities. Too much sales focused. So, if you are in a Manager or Senior Manager band, do expect to be immersed in a sea of proposals that you have to work on.
Pros
Good scope for learning, lot of onsite roles, senior management attentive to employee needs
Cons
Current middle management has many incompetent elements, it is losing its core values slowly due to the sheer size it has grown to
