    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work culture
    Great Management though the middle management is getting heavier
    Employee engagement is high
    Nice work culture
    Good CSR

    Cons

    Highly networked culture (top guys know each other too well). Penetrating their network and getting things done needs a special skill (read back bending & unprofessional).
    Location specific problems (spread in many locations)
    In Chennai, Company does not invest in big infrastructure (one or two big location to house all big teams)
    Food served in many locations are pathetic. The initial days would be good. Slowly, the quality dips.
    HR teams are almost non-existent. Talent Management is an invisible team that deals with only Heads of various teams.
    Many managers are old fashioned rationing their knowledge to subordinates. Coveting information makes employees operational.
    Employees are made to reply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to invest in infrastructure as the distance and traffic in India is eating away the Work-life balance
    Subsidize food and have an external inspector for monitoring quality of food served every day.
    Train employees to see big picture as the next generation knows everything.
