Good place to learn but not to earn

Good place to learn and has a very good learning resources. Minimal hike almost negligible for freshers. Tend to give preference for experienced persons than freshman irrespective of knowledge.

Overall, I would like to say it's a good company with good work life balance

Management in cts is very good. They listen to your problems and help you in resolving them. Team mates are very supportive and help you during your work. Deadlines are there but can be achievable if obviously you don't procrastinate.

Good and Relaxed Job Environment

Pros: Good Company for Freshers. Salary is better than Peers. Technical Training was excellent.Cons: Project allocation is very random. Communication between different hierarchical levels can be improved.

Not so impressive

I joined as a fresher. Then training started after that i got deployed into a project not related to training. Trained again and every time it was only self learning kind of training. Watch videos and submit assignments. No body takes freshers seriously

Nice people who are willing to help you kickstart your career as a fresher.

I have been working as an Automation Engineer at Cognizant for quite some time. I can tell you from my experience that the team in which I have been working is very good and productive. All the team members are super helpful and motivating. They guide me through the challenges that I face in my day-to-day work and motivate me to always keep learning and do productive work to ensure continuous growth.

Will not get right project

Most of all peoples will not get right project in CTS. Other wise all good. Team members are good we can have time to learn. Why I'm searching another job means They have told me Networking project but they have assigned me another project.

Great company

It's a great company to work for. Especially if you are a fresher. Good place for learning and developing your skills. No cons from my end because every cons in cognizant is a experience for everyone. Definitely we need that.

Its pretty much depends on the team that you are placed into

I got placed into a team where most of the work is done on a tool and that tool is not widely used outside the cognizant , so technically i was unable to have a tech stack because of the work .

Communication between employee and hr is very bad.

No proper communication from the management or the hr. Working hours is 10 hours. Pros: For freshers different domains were available instead of only software developer role.

Best place to work for Freshers

You wouldn't be disappointed as a fresher. If you don't have any technical knowledge. Don't worry cognizant will provide you all the training that you need. And support you with everything you need to achieve that. From courses to certification to connects with professional working in that technology.You will get the best mentors.
