Senior Process Executive (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLDecember 15, 2017
I absolutely loved Cognizant. I really did not want to leave when I did but unfortunately I had to due to how far it was from my home at the time, otherwise I would still be there until this day.

Work. Work. Work
Senior Manager - Projects (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYDecember 13, 2017
Growth purely depends on the project / client / location / vertical / Horizontal and the time you joined the project. Depends on the aspiration one has for the growth in the company. Most of the managers are aligned to typical life to achieve more. More the money you bring is better the prospect for growth in the company. We can find wide variety of people around. Right from the people who say, I am good with the job I have and need nothing much to the people, who are found online for 22 hours in a day working. Company recognizes everyone based on the manager but not by the individual. Everyone speaks about work at most of the time. Even entertainment is seen as task to finish.
Pros
Opportunities to try different things
Cons
Typical consulting company

A typical IT services Company
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CADecember 5, 2017
If you want to work in App Support, please apply here. The work is stressful. You can be called on to work in odd hours, weekends. Managers are self involved and hardly pay any heed to employee requirements.
