    Pros

    Impressive office Good corporate insurance Transparent pay structure. No hidden deductibles

    Cons

    This is a big company and experiences may vary across teams, departments and business units It can feel a little alienating if you are not tamil Does not have a great sales team. So, finding a project can be challenging Agrees to pretty much anything the customer asks for. Sometimes they get away with unreasonable demands No strong strategic leadership in Australia. Mostly reacting to immediate needs. Can feel... like body shopping

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not aware of strategic direction. Nor know of any investments made in strategic direction. Saying yes to every customer demand may earn you some short term brownie points. But we are running a business and employees are as much a stakeholder as the customer. There needs to be a solution to engagement leads compromising employees trying to please the customer.

    I worked at Cognizant Technology Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You are fine as long as you are billable.

    Cons

    Odecee was a thriving place to work before Cognizant acquired it and ruined the culture. Innovation and learning culture were replaced with pure consulting work. Never felt truly appreciated, there are still folks who are good at what they do but I believe this company lost its soul when it let go of the core people that made things happen.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting people go who make things happen.
