Cognizant is a rubbish company I ever work on. This company don't think the employees are human nor machine. They worked 11-12 hrs in a day. And the salary aspect of that they give very little.I don't this Cognizant at allllllllllllll. Security of work is 0%. Management don't look over your problems at all. I am sharing my experience with them for 15 days. I worked with them only 15 days.And they fired me without any notice or any mail or anything. Why they fired me??? bcz I couldn't pickup call for a week as they create a mental pressure to me and I was suffering from depression and anxiety during the work.So I was ill that time and feeling anxious to pickup the phone of the manager(1 time) and lead (2 time).Yes I got the salary for the 15 days. They provide me a desktop for WFH without a cord which I had to purchase. Then they also didn't share the credentials with me. When I asked for they didn't answer me. Now after 10 month they asked me to submit the desktop. In the meantime they never ever asked me for that. To bring the desktop I need to purchase a table , need the internet connection and also other connections. It's OK that they feel now that they have to take it back. But when I asked for pickup they told me COVID is over so I have to go there and hand over to them. Now till the October I am unemployed. I am belonging to a middle class family. Only my brother runs the whole family.So you all say me is it possible for me to bring all stuff like monitor, cpu, keyboard,mouse with me and travel to there office by bus?? No. So I need ola/ uber and also a family member with me. Ola/ uber fair you all know . I told them that I will handover in November,2021 as I employed from October. They threatened me to take legal action. Now you all tell me what to do??? They mentally torcher me harass me fired me. Till now they doing it. And also they send invitation to attend the interviews. I appeared also in One interview but no interviewer came to take that. I wait 1 hr....Read More

Dislikes

Dislikes

Politics, job security is not there, they can fire whenever they feel like, promotions are culturally biased, no hikes, no mkt correction, high notice period, poor management, better to not to join as job security is highest level of priority for anyone

No work life balance, as if weekend is for working, leaders prioritize work over human health

When I see in company perspective, company give wonder full work culture and the project which I have worked having a flexible working hrs, but we have to maintain a working hrs of 45hrs/week before covid now it's 50hrs/week. Education assistant is good. Covid 19 support is good. Career growth, getting chance of working in different technologies

Dislikes

Dislikes, 1. It's very hard to switch the domain. As you joined as a fresh blood, they will deploy into some domain which you not interested. It's damn difficult to switch into domain which you like. 2. High work pressure, 3. Less hikes, only when you have good name in project, then you high rating. Though hikes are less

Work Details

Overall it's good

Job security is good, work culture depends on the project which you were in to, management is good when you have supportive HCM else you will start believing this Cognizant is not for you, company policy has recently changed to 9 hrs working excluding 1 hr of break time in total one needs to work for 10hrs a day

Dislikes

Working hours is 10hours per day which is not that great and few manger are best, few are not supportive always

Work Details

It's was good when i started as a fresher later due to change in project and manager it was not that great like initial work culture

Good learning opportunity, used to have a better work culture.

Dislikes

Insecurity, followed by lack of integrity should be biggest concern. Leadership have let down its people, though fingers will be raised at the top brass but it is the D/SDs to blame as they failed to protect, nurture and act neutrally towards the resources who report to them.

Work Details

There's a sweet relation between work and life, and its missing!
