Fast paced environment but very rewarding
Director (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 27, 2017
Cognizant is a great organization to work for and has provided me with a significant amount of experience. It is very fast paced and not intended for those that seek a life/work balance. This is intended for those individuals with entrepreneurial thinking and aspirations.
Pros
Make your own hours, travel, learn from different organizations and get to make a lot of connections.
Cons
Late hours, life/work balance nearly non-existent, move from project to project.

It is worth to work in Cognizant
Customer Service Enhancement (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 25, 2017
Cognizant is a great company to work as it has talented and hard work force. They are adaptable and understand the quality of work and its timelines.

The management is intelligent as it tries to keep up all the employees with the fast moving IT environment.

The hardest part is, it is difficult to stay at one location so keep moving after a year or so.

It is fun to work with this company.

Great job Security
Cloud Architect and DevOps Engineer (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNApril 21, 2017
Job security is very high, lot of opportunities to learn .
But higher management is too poor and managing work life balance is very difficult. They think you like a machine to work for 20 hours a day.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Work life balance

Large Company with Opportunities for Different Roles
Manager (Current Employee) –  USAApril 19, 2017
Cognizant is focused on rotation of roles and assignments. If you are willing to relocate and search for your next opportunity then this is the place to work.

Reviews are based on standard job titles and not customized to individual roles although there is tracking of accomplishments and goals.

Great learning program with internal and external training materials and courses available.
Pros
Large company with lots of opportunities
Cons
Strong Push to change roles/positions every 2 years

As a US Citizen it is hard to advance.

Cons
Difficult to advance.

A very poor place to work for

The hardest park of my job was going in to work everyday knowing i was going to be miserable and had no chance to move forward and excel.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
constant criticism

Business System Analyst (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTApril 13, 2017
Good place to work if you are looking for some peace of mind. However, growth is limited because of the ocean of people in the company. You will be lucky if assigned with a good project. For them, the client is god and if you keep your clients happy, you keep company happy.
