I really wanted to say something positive about cognizant but after experiencing a very bad time working with cognizant there is nothing positive for me to post. There are many things cognizant need to improve very poor work culture and no career growth with disappointing salary hikes. You can't run a company happily if you don't have happy employees. To say something good about the company all I can say is the company mediocre health benefits...Read More

Dislikes

I really had a bad time working with cognizant. To begin with, the project I worked for won't treat freshers properly, very rude teammates and a manager who won't even hear your problems when you tell him/her. No career opportunities despite getting certificates from new technologies. No salary hikes, base salary is too low and it will seriously question how bad your career is going to be, Toxic work culture and no regard for work/life balance. Managers and supervisors readily exploited my work and deliberately gave low ratings just because I questioned the poor management. If there is something I learnt from cognizant is absolutely nothing....Read More

It depends on the project about how well you improve or your career growth. Cts provides better learning opportunities like udemy business for free and also provides certifications like Azure. If you are into low-budget projects then you won't get good compensation for overtime/shifts. I heard people who are into high budget projects have very good compensation and benefits. The horrible thing is you won't get good rating/promotion even you are eligible. If you maintain good relation ship with manager you will get promotion. HR didn't agree to promote me when my manager tried to promote. You have to meet certain criteria like you should have worked for this many months to get the promotion. Cognizant is giving very good hikes to laterals but they are not taking care of already working employees. Because of this attrition rate is very high....Read More

Cognizant's infrastructure is too excellent along with its growth and career opportunities. The company will provide high security for all shift members especially night shift. I have cab facility for three shifts according to my project and hike is somewhat reliable as per you project and designation.

Dislikes

You won't get good teammates all the time so you should be flexible to them. Salary & appraisal is not satisfactory for me even the designation. Also, to work on three shifts on alternative days is really difficult for all. But am happy with its growth opportunities and security system.

Work life here is really good

Dislikes

Rating from manager is not good here . I get 0nly 20000 per month which is my increment from 19000 from last year . For B.Sc and B.C.A. their pay is very low comparing to B.E degree they earn nearly 38 -40k per month which they do the same as me

Work Details

Here we can learn . But from my perspective with my increment I am not satisfied because they give me on 1k increment per month living my life with 20k per month is tough
