These were best days in Cognizant.I learnt a lot about application and technical aspects.

Good place to work.
Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZFebruary 25, 2017
Only down side is you have to be there a year before any raise. If you change job titles your stuck at the same pay.
Every one on the team was nice and helpful.

Going down Infosys way
Associate Director (Current Employee) –  Wayne, NJFebruary 23, 2017
Cognizant has hired lot of Infosys vetrans at mid and higher level. All those who left or were thrown out because of leadership change there.

They were all non performers there, and are now implementing same failed strategy in Cognizant. Unfortunately, the CEO is blind to this. This company is going down slowly but surely.

HORRIBLE! Worst management ever and absolutely no regard for women!
Associate (Former Employee) –  TexasFebruary 23, 2017
Management only cares about their "good old boys" club. Women and white Americans are 2nd class citizens to them. This is absolutely the worst Management I've ever seen. It hasn't always been the case! Those that get promoted, are working around the clock and doing 90% of the work of their managers that provide their reviews. Terrible place to work. No matter how many hours you put in, it is NEVER enough! I'm done!
Pros
Pay is decent and benefits are very good
Cons
Worst Management ever-They work you to death and still want more

Productive
Manager - Projects (Current Employee) –  USFebruary 22, 2017
Learnt more on Project Management & Agile.
Training calendar for Cognizant is good.
Recognition of good job is less.
Senior Management least cares of the employees than the revenue.
Work life balance is big hit as availability anytime is linked to the appraisal.

Great place to work for.
Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  INFebruary 20, 2017
Great place to work for. Entrepreneurial culture. Easy to take on new responsibilities and learn on the job. Some of the management policies such as bell curve to normalise ratings dont help performers reach thier individual goals on time, hence they leave.

Senior Manager, Cognizant Business Consulting (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 16, 2017
Cognizant technology solutions is a good company to work for. Though work/life balance is missing. The compensation could be better and the individuals can be empowered more.
