Not much structure for entry level positions
Associate (Current Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJJuly 11, 2017
There is good flexibility with work, but not much structure for entry level Associates. Communication of expectations and roles should be better explained by management, and new hires could be incorporated into the company culture better.
Pros
Work From Home, Salary, Flexibility
Cons
Ad-hoc relocation, lack of structure

It used to be a great company but now with cost cuttings it is not worth it. Promotions are political and delayed. This company has been lucky on various accounts.

A good service company focused on client deliverables
Manager - Data Science (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CAJuly 7, 2017
It is a big company, things can not be generalized. But if you are a key resource, you are likely to be pulled in multiple projects at the same time. So that can be difficult at times, but it is all about finding the right time.

no advancement, no rotation, no more benefits for old employees
Sr. Project Manager (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaJuly 5, 2017
You don't get treated equally with lateral hires. You will have to fight for getting your compensation improved at par with market.

HR is just a name sake business partner. They must be replaced with automated bots program to bring transparency and quality in work. Else, they just work like second-hand wives of business and managers.

No learning curve and no guidance on new things and new technologies.
Pros
No Pros Compare To Good Companies In Bay Areas.
Cons
less salary revisions, poor secondment salary, no perks

Used to be great, has changed a lot
Technology Specialist (Current Employee) –  Bentonville, ARJuly 4, 2017
Cognizant once used to be a great IT giant now has fallen to bad times. The salary is not great and there are absolutely no perks. The COLA (Cost of living adjustments) provided for large cities is very low.
