Its an Okay place to work but not too much productivity
SAP BODS/ETL Consultant (Current Employee) –  Teaneck, NJNovember 19, 2015
There is not much growth in the company and after project ends the company will place you with any projects even if it has nothing to do with your skillsets. They spread you too thin if not too many projects available. Its a good place for starters, but for experienced developers ad consultants they will find themselves not getting too much growth or opportunities to explore. And lots of competition. Management isnt that supportive at all rather care how much money and long they can place you at the client and top of that travel expenses are almost not paid at all at most projects. and lots of relocation required with no expenses being paid.

Overall, Cognizant is a nice company to work for.
Senior Business Analyst/Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 13, 2015
Cognizant has provided me with opportunities to work on project that have great visibility with some of they're larger accounts. When it comes to delivering SharePoint projects they do an outstanding job making sure that all bases are covered by making sure they have resources with specialized skills such as as developers, testers, project managers, business analysts, architects, and usability experts. They also provide a strong internal support network for employees to learn and develop skill from other employees who have worked on past projects.
Pros
Does business with a lot of high profile clients across multiple industries.
Cons
Advancement opportunities are somewhat limited. Not enough flexible time off

Good work environment, but lack of growth and stagnant life. Less hike and less bonuses and allowances. Good for starting the career, I heard Cognizant is good for higher management.

Good place to Work
Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLOctober 7, 2015
We get very good opportunities to work in different projects but career growth is limited. This is a good place to work where you can get know lot of friends. It would have been good if the performance rating system gets changed to reward real performers.
Pros
Benefits and project exposure
Cons
Compensation and rewards

Secured job but compensation is vey less
Integration Lead (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 21, 2015
Compensation and chance of promotion don't matter on how good we work but actually how many months you worked in the same position. Because of that even if you worked hard, they will promote the people who didn't get promoted for say 5- 6 yrs. Compensation is very poor. Co-workers are usually good and work-life balance is also good.
Pros
work life balance, options for different type of work
Cons
poor compensation and chance to grow
