Terrible experience
Analyst (Current Employee) –  ConnecticutJanuary 14, 2018
Cognizant is not a company that you want to be involved with.
If you are a female you are looked down upon, degrated, lesser of a person. People treat you with little to no respect.
Management is absolutely awful, work/life balance is nonexistent.
They expect you to work around the clock 24/7, work like machines. There is no leave work and work mentality.
Asking for onshore resources they shut down every time. If you’re onshore you’re doing them more harm than good.
Cons
Everything

Lack of focus on the American worker
Lead Consultant/PracticeLead (Former Employee) –  Augusta, MEJanuary 14, 2018
Unless you were Indian, the odds of getting a promotion or a significant pay raise were negligible. The company while based in the US has an Indian culture and mindset with no work life balence.
