    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time

    Pros

    reasonable salary (i needed to enter 5 words...)

    Cons

    I was very alarmed that there was very little focus on actually providing a good service to clients, the focus was very much on extracting the most money. In the bid process there is lots of talk about having teams of highly trained people ready to start work, the reality is most people working on contracts are fresh out of university, with a few experts hired in. As an employee I was constantly asked to fill in my skills, presumably to bolster numbers in future bids. There’s a lot of bureaucracy with chastising for non-compliance. Very little career development but lots of pressure to work harder rather than smarter. IT equipment is parsimonious and very locked down and little option to get the right software for the job. Also parsimonious was the leave allocation. Avoid.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff, give them support and time to develop, they are people not resources.
