Good exposure and adoption of latest technologies by Cognizant and its clients, hackathons, Trainings for upskilling. Work culture is decent

Dislikes

Most employees get average appraisal, so that the increments can be average, and it seems to have become a practice directed by top level management. They try to find mistakes only at appraisal time to avoid giving you top rating. Its hard to get a promotion, have to really fight for it. Some managers are unprofessional, don't understand much technology, but still judge you.

Google process is a nightmare and there is nothing good to talk about.

Dislikes

Horrible bosses. Racist, sexist, and people who dont value hard work. Poor compensation and extremely jigh attrition rate. They dont give a clear idea for the role they are hiring for and the new recruits are in for a shock on their first day at work. Managers are very demeaning. Male managers prefer promoting only female employees. Managers also believe in petty revenge and threats on a regular. The atmosphere is worse than a fake call center, even for their digital operations teams....Read More

No job security.. pathetic work culture.. no career opportunity.. no work-life balance at all.. they will make you work for 12 hours in a 9 hours shift because their targets are unreasonable.

Dislikes

They have unreasonable targets, for that they will ask you to work on Saturdays as well. They will make you work for 12 hours in a 9 hours shift because of unreasonable targets. Poor management.. nobody cares about employee.

Work Details

After working for 12 hours straight from Monday to Friday and on working for Saturday's as well.. my work life at cognizant was a nightmare. Worked for 2 years didn't get a raise in 2 years.. I left the job in 2021 with same salary when i joined in 2019

I immensely love this organisation they do support you a lot if you do your work correctly

Dislikes

Currently 10 hrs work timing is too hectic , if a person spend 10 hrs at office he do not have his personal life and which leads to depression and frustration in work due to which company might loose 💯% productivity. It is always good to have only 8 hours work timing.

Salary on time, rest nothing is amazing abou this company starting from Management to work culture. Long working hours of 10 hours a day. Good for a beginner.

Dislikes

Long working hours. Dirty politics in the management level and this is the only reason very few people like to work here for longer perspective. But they pay salary on time, though they give no hike early.

Work Details

Very bad.

Job security, career growth, salary/appraisal, work environment, work-life balance(50 hours in a week, but now client assumes 70 hours in a week). And while serving the notice period they don't allow any leave, even though if you have sick leave in balance and you are seriously ill(I took leave coz suffering from serious issues and they asked me to send whole blood test results, doctor prescription, medicines name & their video/pic, etc. The company is very greedy now, very bad policies implementation, bench period 30 calendar days, so now the priority is to enter any project irrespective of your skill set....Read More
