Job security is the biggest pro. Overall a good company. But needs to improve in few areas.
Senior Mainframe Developer (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON27 February 2019
Cognizant training is good. Needs to bring in work life balance. Management should be more focused on employee rather than company policies and benefits.

Perfect work/life balance, but bad for aspirations
DATA SENIOR PROCESS EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 February 2019
It's good overall if you are willing to do repetitive tasks with minimal analytical thinking.
Perfect for newcomers to Canada.
Management promotes and rewards their favorites and the people they like instead of looking at job performance.
Stress free and as long as you reach your daily target they won't bother you.
If you get into a project it's really hard to find opportunities in the company outside of it, as they are usually reserved for leadership.
Pros
Snack bar, stress free.
Cons
Rotating shifts, almost no room for growth.

Worst place
SAP Analyst (Former Employee) –  Canada14 February 2019
A very strong South Indian lobby which is playing around with the system and doesn't let anyone come other than them.

People are having fake experiences coming from India though Intracompany transfers, untill then they hire local PR or Citizens. Once the person arrives from India, they will gonna fire you!! People work for a year in offshore and then are brought here by faking credentials.

Government and organizations having them as their vendors need to review the policies so this company doesn't ruin up careers. Highly incapable people are working and making money on work permits, whereas local people are neglected. What is the justification of having 95% consisting of one of community in an abroad country, equal employment opportunities LOL.

They hire you as a contractor through sub contracting and even subcontractor doesn't pay on time.

They hire you temporarily, just to fulfill their headcount.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
No job security, Lobby, Subcontracting, Fake Experience around

Good place to work for job security
ETL Lead, Senior ETL Developer (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WA31 October 2018
If you are free to relocate anywhere, this job can give job security. Management is not good, almost like a body shopping company. No direct manager or it often changes, or not from your Account.
