    Pros

    Pros:
    Flexible work schedule
    Good managers and too many projects.
    Great work life balance.
    Others things depend on the type of project you get inn.

    Cons

    Cons;
    Less pay and it takes years to get a good hike.
    Growth takes time.
    It takes a lot of time to understand the architecture ,as there is long chain gap between higher management and 1st level employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay scale.. Their is no hike after we enter into the company.

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

    Pros

    1. The best employee friendly company I have ever experienced and heard of
    2. Assured Annual salary hike
    3. When compared to the market standards for any given year, the hike percentage at Cognizant is always on the higher side
    4. The bonus benefits are minimum of 100% and can go upto 200%
    5. Employees will never be thrown out due to politics. There is a proper inquiry system and even poor performers are given another chance to show their potential.
    6. Employee benefits are definitely good
    7. The CEO is dynamic.

    Cons

    1. Very few teams have reported work-life balance. Should say less than 10%.
    2. The HR recruiter can be a bit challenging during salary package negotiations
