    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Great support structure within project teams to help you get up to speed.
    - Diversity of opportunities available at offshore or onshore.
    - Onshore assignments do not carry the stress of worrying about visa eligibility.
    - Very good Green Card processing services for onshore employees

    Cons

    - Your experiences are determined by your individual project team. Some are great and some not so much. Basically, that is uncontrollable and 'Your Mileage May Vary'
    - There seems to be an almost fanatical association of performance reviews and promotions to pay grade. As in the only way to revise your pay is if you are promoted or hired as a lateral entrant, which is demotivating for long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Internal support structure hasn't scaled up to meet the overall employee ramp-up HR, Immigration support, Admin, Facilities are lagging behind the organization's needs at this time.
    - Long term employees feel less valued in the organization where their experience and insight doesn't seem to be considered crucial.

    Pros

    Scorching growth rate throws up unlimited opportunities for advancement. Fantastic portfolio of marquee customers and projects. Great spread of service offerings.

    Cons

    Mad scramble for growth slots since the company employs 100,000+ people. Easy to get lot even at senior levels! Need to be a "hustler" to get ahead, which is par for American culture but rather unusual in a Indian setting.
