Work life balance/Culture

Very good company to work for any IT employees. Cognizant culture is very good and good onsite opportunities. Transparent management in some BUs and lot of learning opportunities for freshers/experienced folks.

Very nice workplace

You will get good opportunities to upskill. Have opportunity to change project as per your desire. Good policy in place to get your promotions. Salary hike will be less.

overall good company to work

good place to work, work life balance, no micro management, being part of the calls are important, Technical stack is also good, no much onsite opportunities


Take home is very clear. No hidden deductions.


Cognizant has increased the workings hours by 1 hour during covid in 2021

Overall not happy , a lot of stress and underpaid

Don't feel any enthusiasm, a boring and stressful life , just sitting from 9 AM TO 11 pm, anything could be better than this life, even after getting top rating in consecutive years the package is always normalised

Good work culture but sluggish growth

Pros:1. Good people around2. Management listens and acts on your concerns3. Learning and development opportunities available4. Work Life balance is thereCons:1. Low salary levels2. Promotions are very less3. People spending too long in same position at higher ups and thus block the rise of others below them


Work Life balance


Promotions are very less

No recognition for the hard workers

No recognition for the hard workers, self centred and spinless management who provide false promise also the pay grade is very less at par the industry standards.

Good to go for Freshers

Good company for freshers. But not a good option for professionals who was very strong in Technical skills and also solution architects. Annual reviews will not based on your talent and expertise. It's completely Manager specific.

No work life balance

No time for new learningNo Management Support High Attrition of skilled resources due to work loadNo Appreciation / rewards to high performers Poor recruitment process


Food card allowances


No work life balance, less job security, Poor Management

Moderate learning with slow advancement opportunities

Not a bad place to start off career. Constraints in terms of location as relocation maybe required based on project. Calls at odd hours due to having to work with US teams. Decent work life balance.


Paid transport


Time tracking, slow and delayed appraisals

Not the right company to work with!

Now Cognizant is not like how it was between 2000 to 2015. Lost most of its great leaders due to company politics and wrong decisions taken by head. Reduced its budget for innovations and other employee benefit initiatives. It is concentrating only on how to increase their share price.


Wide range of line of businesses


Work culture and management

Great Learning and Employee Friendly

The company provide good opportunity in the project by letting me to lead the team as well as working as technical consultant. Opportunity given to face the client.

Management is unpredictable. The Policies are not clear and most of the important employee related policies are not present in the Portal such as Job Progression, Employee Evaluation criteria during appraisal process etc.

Horrible Company to Work specially HR and Senior Management including CEO

They don't have any Pros the senior management are idiots, specially the CEO BRIAN and one line down subordinates and the companies partners.HR and Bench team is horrible. They usually do hire and fire. one month bench policy. If you are in bench more than month HR will behind keep a personal hearing session so called neutral personal who will not hear from you anything rather than to make you victimize. The TSC team is useless. The company hired the people as when required with high salary no bench policy the HR, management and business are reluctant to do their job and lots of politics inside the company . Please don't hire people without the requirement and make their career horrible because all resources working for company and families


Only Yearly medical checkup is good practice


They have a bad practice hire and fire no bench and horrible HR and Management
