Once good company now not
Lead small and midsize projects (Current Employee) –  India, Hong Kong, Canada16 July 2017
Has been in this company for 10 years, never seen such downfall.
It was always been a good place to work in past, but since last year scenario has changed. They are laying off people for no reason, giving less score in appraisal, not giving hike on time. I would not recommend this company to anyone anymore.

No Work Life Balance
Sr Dynamics CRM Consultant (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 June 2017
Constantly on call with Offshore Team. Almost no Work/Life Balance.
Totally burn out for trying to meet unrealistic deadlines. Management is incompetent, and will not listen to any constructive opinions.
Pros
Salary.
Cons
Everything else.

Hardest part of the job - the benefits do NOT make up for this disadvantage
Programmer Analyst -> Developer (Current Employee) –  multiple locations (depends on client)3 June 2017
Management (esp. for client-client relations & project management) is terrible - leading to over-demanding timelines that are not possible to be achieved. This means that developers (my position) and testers have to suffer through plenty of unpaid overtime just to accomplish mgmt's unrealistic demands.
Furthermore, your bonus is determined by a single grade given by your manager you have when you end the year. If you have a mean (understatement) boss who grades you lowly, all your effort throughout the year is rendered obsolete and your bonus will be meager; regardless of the number of projects you were involved in.
Pros
Insurance benefits - really the only thing worth mentioning
Cons
Terrible management are a sufficient con to make your work life as difficult as possible, bad bonus system

Good if you work hard
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Stamford, CT28 May 2017
Not so good if you want work life balance. Don't expect to stop working after client hours, because there are many who are willing to do that. And obviously, if somebody is putting 12 hours against your 8 hours s/he is going to get all the appreciations/promotions.

Workplace full of office politics
Automation Lead (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 May 2017
You need to know people to go up the ladder simply, work mostly does not matter. The senior management is corrupt.

They do have few projects going on in Canada, though the presence is not promising enough.

Personal Relationship with Managers matters for career growth with in Organization.
Database Administrator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 April 2017
Internal groups and team politics help non-working associates to grow in ladder and actual working associates won't get recognition or won't get help from HR's on year end appraisal issues. Associates will be forced to leave or left with no option to remain in the same level.
Pros
Policies and Internal applications
Cons
No Accountability for Managers actions, middle management decisions on associates

QA Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 March 2017
wonderful place to work as it had a a big team got to work with more talented people.
i have learned a lot from the company.the most enjoyable part was that every now and then company comes up with a wonderful plan that is different from our daily work, so that we all merge together and have to complete a game task.
Pros
free coffee, soft drinks, juice and sometimes a lunch

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
