    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cognizant is a fast growing global IT service company and is expanding its business vertically and horizantally. It stands ahead of its rivals like TCS and Infosys in work life balance. Better brand value and employee benefits. As long as you are doing your duties well and have a good relation with your manager, you have chances of moving up.

    Cons

    depending on project and account, work life balance may be impacted. HR policies are not very flexible for top performers and at times it may be hard to find an opportunity to work in niche technologies due to inter account policies and project politics.
