Tier 2 Company

2.0 of 5 stars

April 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Work life balance is strong and people are humble and loyal

Downers

Difficult to build teams with just in time hiring model and numerous lengthy hiring freezes. Compensation is not competitive with Ties 1 firms. Many of my colleagues from tier 1 firms have come and gone.

Comments

The consulting work is heavily focused in technology and about 70% of the consulting work you will sell is staff augmentation. Many mba's are put into junior level staff Aug roles.

Dynamic and entrepreneurial context for growth

4.0 of 5 stars

April 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Breadth and depth of consulting, technology and outsourcing capabilities for digital transformation allow for growth - for both client and employee.

Downers

Not necessarily most holistic and consulting-oriented focus in both client and intercollegial interactions.

Comments

In Cognizant's breadth and depth of consulting, technology and outsourcing capabilities for digital transformation lie great opportunities for professional development and growth but to achieve synergies requires some effort since a holistic and consulting-oriented focus in both client and intercollegial interactions does not (yet) come natural.
