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

    Pros

    You get paid to do nothing. I literally worked there for a year and a half and got paid to sit at home and play video games, travel around on company expense, and walk around the outsourcing companies acting like I did something. Hence the term role- (an actor in a corporation)

    Cons

    After you get bored of sitting at home you won't have anything to put on your resume. Thus, making it impossible to get hired by another company unless they hire actors as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing for managers, as long as companies do not want new programs and continue to outsource.
    Advice to shareholders- be careful where you invest. Numbers are a symptom not a solution.

    Pros

    I started my career with this company. I feel this is the best place to work and to start your career.

    Cons

    Compensation & Benefits is the cons in this company

    Would be better if management can concentrate little more on employment benefits

    Pros

    Good work culture, strong organizational/HR policies, fliexible timings, diversified business domains in terms of verticals and horizontals in service offerings

    Lack of opportunities/permittance in terms of migrating from one domain/technology to another which might interest you. Getting release from Project specially support projects can be really difficult at times.

    Current Employee - Programmer Analyst Trainee in Chennai (India)

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

    Pros

    A great training program which contains technical as well as professional behavior learning's. And if you are working on right domain then you will get assigned as soon as training completes. A part from them many e-learning workshops will help in better understanding of subjects.
    Overall if you are engaged in some project, you will love life here.

    Cons

    Some time bench period is large for fresher's and that sucks (as some of my friends spend time on bench).
    Career growth is step wise step only except some exceptional cased, so can't accept a boom rise in salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better to engage resources in some internal projects, learning's or some new technology training than keeping them on bench.
