    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I think I can safely say with Cognizant, (as a grad) it is somewhat the luck of the draw where you end up. You either like it or you don't. I was lucky to land in a good practice with loads of nice people and a good set of assignments.

    Pros

    Cognizant has lots of high profile clients so lots of opportunities to work for "Cool" clients.

    Cons

    The company remains very Indian culture. Too many aggressive and abusive managers that regularly shouts down team members at client's office. Shockingly senior managements called the abusive behavior as "Good Leadership skill"

    Advice to Management

    When Cognizant dispatches Indian managers to Europe, please get their leadership skill right. It is embarrassing that too many Indian managers can't control their emotion at work.
