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.

Test Lead Analyst (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 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.
A unique company with an interesting work environment.
