    Pros

    Cognizant is a good company for new joiners. It provides lot of opportunities to new joiners to learn varieties of technologies. Also it's a good company if you have onshore aspirations.

    Cons

    Cognizant used to provide lot of other benefits to employees earlier which they have cut down to save cost and other companies have done that too. And sometimes the work life balance is not good.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    Pros

    It pays you what it says you.

    Cons

    It is slowing following steps of IBM, Accenture and is being more process driven organization which is again not working that well in Cognizant's core ecosystem.

    Advice to Management

    Make things smooth rather than abiding only processes as by doing that you are losing on the turnaround time in all aspects which your competitors are leveraging.
