Aggressive work culture
Good benefits. Much better human resource policies and support. Work culture is aggressive. Career growth is limited to your groups. Not enough movements across Functions or Business groups.

Quality Auditor | Phoenix, AZ | Jan 9, 2020
Enjoyed working there and understood the need to reorganize for the company benefit.
Given the freedom to make my decisions independently and this relayed a sense of the leaderships trust in my abilities. At times, needed to have leadership support in dealings with client issues above my level, but were eventually worked out.

Get rewarded for hardwork
I am part of the presales/business development team at Cognizant. Its a dynamic and busy role. Long work hours. However, there is lots to learn. At Cognizant, hardwork is rewarded (great bonuses). The company has a policy where employees must rotate roles after every few years. This is great as there are multiple roles available within to choose from. Employees can dabble with multiple roles and gain a breadth of experience across different areas.

Talented Teams
The teams I worked with were very talented in their areas of expertise. Many traveled from different parts of the country and were SMEs who were not needed on a full-time basis. They were great networkers and knew who to reach out to for additional information and ensured that they met their targets leading to the highest client ratings and add-on business. In my role I met many different people and was put into difficult client situations requiring turn-around. Support from the account teams varied dramatically.

Stressful but enjoyable
Enjoyed working in my position but it was stressful due to you think you are safe in your job but then you are told the assignment is going to be centralized or ended.

Road warrior
The positions I held were "remote" in that you are in a remote location fly in and fly out for weeks or months at a time. Though some work from home opportunities exist in this very large company, my role had me on the client site a majority of the time. The compensation was good and the benefits are good. The hours while on site are long often exceeding 8 or 10 hours. The consulting functions we did within my group are demanding and aligned with client satisfaction. Often contracts were written to win rather than perform the tasks that were committed to. This created many situations where the heroics of the team had to compensate for the gap created in delivery versus what was committed to in the contract. There are some very talented people employed with Cognizant. It was a pleasure working with most of them. I learned a great deal and had the privilege of working some amazing engagements.

Chaotic and lack of structure
Needs better leadership and direction. The consulting group has no structure and I was lied to regarding my role and responsibilities at the time of employment.

Asked Jul 13, 2016
I took about a month to be accepted into the I company due to the extreme back ground checking, once that was done, once hired i had to go through about 1month of training for the job. Then you had to keep a passing percentage once you hit the floor .
