"I worked for Cognizant since 2020 and overall I have always gotten the support of the Company especially during the COVID time - the managing team took an ownership to quickly move the employees to work from home and took care of our work flow as well. Cognizant has always given its employees a great chance to learn and grow by providing any tool or any new technical skill for free. I am grateful to be part of this C team - where I got promoted as a Lead."
