    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1.Get salary without doing any work for atleast 1 year. 2.No pressure as there is no work lol.

    Cons

    1.Not good for freshers as they spoil the careers of freshers due to the worst manager in cognizant india. 2.support projects were given to freshers in the name of development. 3.7-8 members in a team for support project only. 4.Difficult to switch to other company as you dont have development skills required by others companies. 5.They just take telecom projects and hire more and more freshers to do the billing work and support work there in the name of development. 6.Only join if you are applying for manager level position freshers are treated as tool to earn profit. 7.Worst management policy take multiple interviews for a single project and then assigned documentary work or call support work. Better to join startup or mid level company there you will get experience and enhance your skills level. 8.In 2020 more than 2000 freshers joined the company and more than 1500 left within 2,3 month after joining due to worst management.So avoid joining cognizant and join only if you have any relatice there in upper level management.As nepotism concept is also valid here at high rate.beware of that
