    Pros

    Very global and plenty of opportunities to learn and explore. Great vision and brand value.

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management. They are only concerned about bottom line. Mostly reactive and not proactive. Very difficult to move from one domain to another. Employees are tethered to their business unit/vertical and are not allowed to move across to other units easily. Poor HR/recruiting laws.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on branding, charitable donations and keep an eye on your HR/ Admin and upper management staff who are wasting resources and providing poor guidance. A house clean up is very necessary to become successful. Think about creating products and not just service and headcount addition

    Pros

    Nothing really worth mentioning about.

    Cons

    Works company to work for. If you are not an Indian expecting to get a Visa to live in US it's not the company for you. Environment and management gives more opportunities to Indians. Projects only in cheap IT outsourcing. Cognizant is being able to fool the market with its revenue growth, but in fact the growth is just because it outsources more and more work to Indians (cheapest labor possible).

    Advice to Management

    None

  6. good firm
