Every thing is gud other then working hours

I have no issues with management and work culture. As a mother of 1 year baby it's difficult to work continuous10 hours per day. We don't have flexible working hours. We have to login and complete the work with jn the 10 hours.

Overall good

Based on project all learning will be there. But over here as it's service based company you will get lot of options in terms of switching between the projects based on your manager.

Productive and Fun Activities at work

Everyone feels included. The managers and colleagues make sure that you are present and prepared with all kinds of tasks. They’re helpful and makes sure that tasks are assigned equally among us.

Cognizant have good policies but have bad management

Cognizant have good policies but have bad management w.r.t. recourse allocation, career development and aspirations.They are not bother about employee preferences

Great place to work

Everything depends on client project.Management needs to think about there employees work-life balance .Payscal is less as compared to market standard.Kolkata location is worst for me lots of politics. Manager only looks for those who have a good bonding with employees not interms of working standard.

Good to work in the company

Promotion pay will be different project to project. Work with the best project u will gain knowledge. Need to explore the more things in the project and should be more interactive with all

Company was good. But post management change the policies are changed which are not employee friendly e.g. 10 hrs of login per day. Hike is less. Too much politics

Productive and knowledge gaining

I joined here in June 2019. And started my first project in Oct 2019. At starting phase it was a little difficult to go with the flow, but the Senior colleagues are really helpful. They helped a lot in understanding the working measures. First few months though there were not a lot of work still being a novice time management was a challenge for me. But slowly and steadily everything got sorted out. And now after 3 years I am in a comfortable zone according to my work pressure. Only a little concern is that salary is 40-50% lower what I personally feel. But the work life balance is quite good and a good organisation to gain knowledge.

Not good for freshers who want to be Developer

- Overall good hike in 3 years of tenure (better than industry standards).- Not good to join as freshers if you aspire to become Software Developer.- Project Allocation is random, mostly.- Make use of Free Udemy access.- Work environment is good in few projects, not-so-good in support projects.- Freshers have option to deny project once or twice if technology is not mapping with your skills (You have to give genuine reason to HR or POC).


Better hike than industry standards


Attrition Rate is very high. Mostly support projects for freshers

Productive and fun

Cognizant is a very good company with good culture, cognizant believes in equality. Employee promotion and increment depends on how pro active is the employee.


Free lunch, free udemy courses, insurance, special allowance, two way cab


Long hours, slow career growth

Carrer Growth

All depends on where you are deployed based project and client and management.For my side ,I'm not satisfied with the current roles and project.If you are working with the client company then your hike and appraisal will be very minimal.You don't want to expect more.


Remote working(WFH), Flexible working hours, On time salary.Work life balance not much


Please deploy the employer based on their skill set.

Get Package when you join otherwise you wont get much hike

Work pressure mostly depends on the project. Good environment. You will not get good hike internally. More support projects available. you can get projects depends on your skill set.
