Quality Engineer and Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 4, 2016
The hours are great, really relaxed environment.
The average day begins with a meeting to know the work for the day. Followed by running and maintaining automated scripts and logging any defects. If any features are created test cases will be written and then manually executed and/or automated and executed.
There will be some meetings in there for future work and time for lunch.
Cons
Rare to see people advance within the company

Contract Data Entry Associate (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 22, 2016
It's a contracting job and there is no guaranteed to be hired on permanently. They give three months at a time to renew your contract if they feel the need for it. Data entry was the main part of the job.

Delivery Manager/Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 17, 2016
I joined Cognizant as Fresher after completing my college 12 years back. I have the opportunity to learn a lot. It has great team to support with any resource we need from people to knowledge. It offers one of the best benefits. It offers opportunity to learn new things and try different role to refine your aspiration and goal.
Pros
HealthCare Benefits, Flexibility
Cons
Might have to relocate frequently due to project change

Good place to work, compensation could be more competetive
Test Lead Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 16, 2016
After working at this company for 3+ years I have immense respect for this company from a growth standpoint. They're always looking to build on the business and attack area of the market from an innovation standpoint. They are successful from that perspective. There are some shortcomings however. Placement dictates your experience quite a bit. If you are placed on a project in a favorable city then your experience is a lot more positive. Some coworkers that have been placed in unbearable situations experience burnout very quickly and end up moving on. Next most important aspect is the project that you get paired with. Some projects are more organized than others, thus you are paired with more capable management. My work environment has become less and less diverse. These days my coworkers are mostly if not all Indian. This is something that Cognizant could do better at. Most enjoyable part of my job is building a good rapport with the customer and providing impeccable service.
Pros
Events, Management, Learning
Cons
Diversity, Compensation
