    Pros

    Working in cognizant is a bliss. Because mainly we have great environment for employees, they give best training. Ease of work is there. Management is wonderful. Hence any fresher/corporate employee can choose to be in cognizant.

    Cons

    There will be delay in deployment into projects after the training is over.
    People expect you to work more than 9 hours sometime.
    Getting promoted and changing of Business Unit is a headache.
