Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please change the ages old model of treating Manager as GOD. If a person is not satisfied by his manager's review, he/she should be given a chance to challenge it.But i have never seen this happening in Cognizant

    Pros

    If you are a good performer, you can move to higher levels much faster

    At times, you may be asked to put more than 100%. Depends on the time and phase of project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to lower level associates and senior associates, as work gets done by them

    Former Employee - Senior Associate - Projects in Chennai (India)

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Great support structure within project teams to help you get up to speed.
    - Diversity of opportunities available at offshore or onshore.
    - Onshore assignments do not carry the stress of worrying about visa eligibility.
    - Very good Green Card processing services for onshore employees

    Cons

    - Your experiences are determined by your individual project team. Some are great and some not so much. Basically, that is uncontrollable and 'Your Mileage May Vary'
    - There seems to be an almost fanatical association of performance reviews and promotions to pay grade. As in the only way to revise your pay is if you are promoted or hired as a lateral entrant, which is demotivating for long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Internal support structure hasn't scaled up to meet the overall employee ramp-up HR, Immigration support, Admin, Facilities are lagging behind the organization's needs at this time.
    - Long term employees feel less valued in the organization where their experience and insight doesn't seem to be considered crucial.
