    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The work is routine and easy
    - Many small perks makes the environment comfortable
    - Little pressure to exceed expectation

    Cons

    - Pay is very little
    - Seriously outdated infrastructure. Expect technical difficulties on a daily basis.
    - Bloated, inefficient organization. Expect confused responses and ball-pushing when you have an actual issue.
    - Management is prone to favoritism.
    - HR will not resolve any issue and will not follow up. ( Same applies to other levels of management)
    - Little to no growth, very high turnover rate
    - NO visa support (important) Do no believe otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your internal structure if you want any sort of long-term growth. Actually, care about your employees.
    Do actually see who are the ones creating a toxic environment instead of listening to your most active reporters.

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunity available in Cognizant to learn new technology and business . If you are good at something and you are able to showcase your capabilities in terms innovation apart from your usual work, you will be given opportunities and recognition time to time. I was promoted to Sr. Associate within 5 year, and this is my first company after college.

    Cons

    Sometime it gets boring when you get a job which you don't like, but you have to do. Usually this big organizations tends to follow certain processes , which are very time consuming and not worthy of interest for an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep people engaged in innovation in latest trends and technology across industry. And there should be a dedicated R&D labs for each of the horizontal. Because ultimately it is research which will open new doors, else IT will reach to a saturation point.
