    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits, great place to start for a graduate and very flexible work place. Get to work from home sometimes.

    Cons

    Very little structure to the organisation but personally I find it good however its like going through a matrix at times. Salary progression is poor. Lack of diversity expect to see many Asians here (Indians mainly). Very little guidance and you got to search for your own opportunities. Can be sitting on the bench for a while if you are not proactive.

    Advice to Management

    To keep your talent and newly joined associates you got to have structure in place, need to give them work at the beginning. Let them shadow people, give them some sort of plan. You should give more competitive incentives to graduates if you want them to stay with you.
