Most stressfull job i have ever worked
Senior Processing Executive (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IA14 December 2017
Worst company I have ever worked for. You are only a number to them. A robotic number is how we referred to us. The bathroom facilities are absolutely disgusting. There are only 3 stalls in the women's bathroom so you spend a good amount of time waiting. The amount of people who do no wash their hands. The break room does not have a big enough refrigerator to hold the amount of people, some have to keep a padlock on the lunch box to stop people from taking food out of the lunch boxes. You are not allowed to have your cell phone on the floor, must be kept in your locker. So if there is a family emergency it's hard for someone to get ahold of you because they have to get ahold of a managers phone first and then they will relate a message to you. They ask for our opinions and how to make it a better place to work since attendance is a big issue, turn over is a big issue. When we discuss the concerns on the floor and suggestions from discussion with our peers on how to make it better, ore enjoyable to want to come to work, nothing get done with any of it.
Pros
Did cater in free lunch/breakfast on occasion
Cons
You are only a robotic number to them

Master Scheduler (Former Employee) –  New York, NY10 December 2017
Cognizant management does not get involve in day to day activities, they have the matrix system laid down to check the work life of the consultants, overall its more hours to work.

Infrastructure Specialist (Current Employee) –  chennai8 December 2017
Productive and fun working place to work, with the agenda on quality and process. Workplace culture is decent management. The hardest part of the job is working in unreasonable rotational shifts.

Quality Engineering & Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) –  Mount Laurel, NJ1 December 2017
Projects Vary, Career Development is not a concern here. If you are looking for just a "job" this is a great place. If you want to go above and beyond to make something of yourself id advise to look elsewhere.

Exposure for college graduates is great. If you play your cards right you can end up on a great project for a few years of experience.
Pros
Great for College graduates
Cons
Billing is the highest priority, Career Growth
