Lead small and midsize projects (Current Employee) – India, Hong Kong, Canada – 16 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.
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 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.
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.
Good scope for learning, lot of onsite roles, senior management attentive to employee needs
Current middle management has many incompetent elements, it is losing its core values slowly due to the sheer size it has grown to
IT Consultant (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 18 April 2016
My day would start by greeting my fellow workers and followed by task assigned to me and completion. Hard work pays, management is very helpful but demanding, co-workers are really very helpful. Hardest part was offshore call late at night but later enjoyed it the most.
