    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Modern office, free tea, coffee, selection of soft drinks, cereals, bread and spreads.
    Good xmas & summer parties. Salary and bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Off shore culture is not nice, be prepared to be thrown under the bus, IT department likes keeping information close to their heart and not willing to share, very basic benefits, one way system where you have to respect the indian culture, but no respect for the natives in the UK.

    Advice to Management

    When people come from offshore to the UK. Teach them the UK culture and values. Don't be one sided.
