This is a great company to work for if you are a self-motivated person. Everyone is given goals and it is up to each person to figure out how to get it done. The company has a global mentality and it works very well.

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.
This company is ok to work for.. but doing jobs with a company that only take on projects for other companies can be bad do to the projects are always ending or downgrading they have poor management skills and language barriers is a problem..
Senior Manager - HR (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 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.
Sr. Solutions Architect (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – June 30, 2018
Cognizant is a difficult company to work for given that they reorganize constantly and move people in and out of teams given their offshore/onshore model. They are primarily and offshore company with a domestic presence.
Senior Process Executive (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 30, 2018
working for Cognizant was enjoyable, employee oriented and valued their employees. I would recommend this company to others. The management was amazing and understanding to their employees. The value was amazing on how they acknowledged their employees. Training was kept up daily and any changes was immediately put out to the employees.

People have groups based on states as well as languages & promote their own people, outsiders will always suffer. Company focuses more on their own targets & compromises always with Employee's benefits. They have nothing to do with you progress...
