Work & Life Balance


Programmer Analyst in Ashburn, VA
on January 12, 2019
Great place to start yoru career
Positive Outlook I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (More than 3 years) Pros lots of opportunities available in many different fields and locations Cons while still working for a company as a cognizant consultant, you are still required to do a bunch of side tasks and shenanigans for cognizant. Luckily if you do a good job the client will treat you very good. Advice to Management make the environment more diverse, i know its a company mainly owned by guys from India, but don't forget that the US is a very diverse country and promotes diversity, meaning employing people from different countries

Ok company to start in but you should probably try to find something else after gaining some experience. Work can vary a lot based on what team you get assigned.
Associate Director in Remote
on June 6, 2021
Entire company seems to be run as if all employees are programmers in India. For example, the skills database only seems to have technical skills. The environment is purposely made unnecessarily competitive, by requiring managers to give bad employee evaluations to a certain percentage of direct reports. For example, if there are 10 direct reports, only 6 can get a rating of 3/5 or above - regardless of actual performance. Evaluation impacts bonus as well as how to determine who to fire when/if budgeting requires some downsizing. The result is teammates who compete against each other rather than collaborate.

I can’t imagine a work environment more toxic than the one I encountered during my time at Cognizant. I witnessed some of the most unprofessional and unethical things Ive ever seen there.
Accounts Receivable Specialist in Hatboro, PA
on June 4, 2021
Micromanaged. Work culture is family oriented. Pay could be better. No job security right now. Alot of office politics. Only friends of management elevate in the company. Organized chaos
