"I've been with Cognizant for a few years. The benefits are actually pretty good but the pay is well below industry standards. They do a lot for career development such as free Udemy but the process to move even laterally in the company takes a Ph.D.to figure out. Most mid to senior-level managers are in India so outside of local management communication is nonexistent."

"I have been a recent trainee at Cognizant, they have been fully supportive of new grads and giving good guidance to them. I have learned a lot staying in company by last 6 months. But the project delivery and cycles have been slow and you need to wait a lot to move up the chain and I have high ambition to grow so it is kind of slow work paced environment which doesn't align with my goals."

"I've worked for Cognizant on the Google My Business project since 2019. Cognizant has been a very rewarding and helpful company that puts their employees first. Since they have over 150,000+ employees worldwide and growing, there are some growing pains within the communication throughout the company and does seem to micro manage when needed. However, they make up for this as they are able to still provide benefits, PTO and consistent company culture, even through the pandemic. If anyone wants a good start and a good place to work and grow a career, Cognizant would be a great place to look into."
