Waste of Time

They will put freshers in a project where they only have to gaze monitor, even if you are capable enough to handle difficult task. You should not waste time.

Good work culture but less growth

Work life balance is good and there is no micromanagement done by the supervisos.But Salary is not competitive. Projects are too long and at times they start becoming boring


Work life balance, flexible management


Less growth, less salary

Work experience

I was in Cognizant for 3.5 years. Compensation was very low compared to market, managers use to do lot of politics. Work was mainly dependent on project you get, mostly they will deploy you for billing purposes only.

Good. But we have to get into the correct project. We might get into the some other projects without any new technologies. So we have to be careful at selecting the projects

Very bad work culture. Paywise good but they need to improve a lot of areas. Mostly support projects going on. People suffer here alot due to bad management and politics.

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.
