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.

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

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

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

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.
