Good company but geared to offshore and visa holders
Infrastructure Administrator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 18, 2018
Company has good benefits and good training but expects experienced employees to do the same training as junior staff even if skills are already proven. All reviews are done locally but then advancement is calculated at the corporate level where you are just a number. Saw good, knowledgeable employees passed up for promotion because they were too valuable as workers to promote out of their position. Company needs to let local staff and the customer determine technology path instead of some outside group swoop in and try to say what needs to be done even if it doesn't align with resources and requirements at the local office.
Pros
benefits, training opportunities
Cons
must be willing to relocate for new positions, hard work valued more than smart work

This is a great place to work and grow. The managers are great. The salary is acceptable. The CEO and leadership has a solid vision. Drawbacks are that there are too many horizontals. Becomes confusing at times

Working at Cognizant
Sr. Systems Executive/Shift Lead (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 16, 2018
Cognizant has a work structure that is based around numbers. They really don't take the time to spend getting to know their employees outside of reports and other number based means.

Be careful
Senior Manager Change Management (Current Employee) –  Teaneck, NJJuly 10, 2018
Remember to ask before you finish offer negotiations, for EVERYTHING you intend to get in your benefit package. Do not take "normal corporate benefits" for granted and assume Cognizant has them. Cognizant gives to those who ask, at best. If you expect something, you need to get it in writing that you will get it.

Fun place to work
Senior Manager - HR (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 6, 2018
It's a fun place to work but the culture is a bit different from other firms. The organization highly values internal talent, loyalty to the firm and new hires might take a long time to get used to the culture. People work very hard and stretch much beyond 9-5 work schedules and weekends.
