Decent place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Life at Cognizant depends on the project you are assigned in and your home manager. It can go from very bad to very good based on these factors. Changing domains very hard, next to impossible. Overall the company culture is good, some managers try to spoil it but if you know your rights and can speak out it life won't be bad

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Work for freshers will take longer duration but stay with developer teams for good scope.

I work as a DotNet developer, but in Cognizant I learned many technologies like Angular, SQL, Python and GCP. For a fresher if it is a good project stay with the company so you have a lot to gain in experience in various fields.

Lot of learning opportunities

I worked for a very big client and it was a very nice learning experience. I worked as a Team lead and enhanced the process during my work for the client. I worked for 2 different processes with the same client, and it is one of the biggest e-commerce.


Fun activities at work


nothing as of now

Lots of things to improve and settle on

The only advantage of working at cognizant is that they have a good work life balance and that too only with a few projects. Otherwise 10 hours a day for work is totally unmatched in the industry.Rest all are serious disadvantages. Compensation and Promotion is totally based on office politics. Zero job security, as every third onths there's firing and the excuse is given that there's a recession or something when rest of the industry is doing absolutely fine. CEO keeps changing so there's no stability within the top management and lower management as well. So you're totally on the basis of luck you never know when what could happen. Job culture is again affected with politics and your whole career might crash all of a sudden. Suddenly you realise you've been working on this project day and night and you learnt absolutely nothing. Talking about good projects, they are a few and so few you could count them on fingertips. So if you get an absolute good project you can stay and learn but with a risk of job security. Otherwise I would advise to just leave. and search elsewhere.

Very bad company to work for, due to the decisions of management

The management at Cognizant is the worst. The company is full of micromanagers and people with no hope. I have met the worst people of my life in Cognizant.

Less Projects more hiring

There is less availability of projects within the company for freshers as well as for experienced java developers.A lot of people have been released from projects and further the freshers are made to sit a year before being allocated to any project

Good place to work

Employee voices are powerful. Our first offering is a compilation of the truly best and shockingly worst employee comments we've ever seen come through our survey engine (that were appropriate to publish, of course). Collected from the feedback of nearly 400,000 voices surveyed through Best Places to Work, these employees have no problem being candid and telling the real story.

Typical Indian it company

Promotions are slow.Tough if you are new to organisation. As usual, day to day work and project depends on your manager.Decent salary (ensure you before you come in)
