Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
My Cognizant's position was in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Cognizant is similar to an agent company. "Good or bad" depends on what kind of client you are going to work for.

Pros

Offer is not bad (they can offer more than your expectation)

Cons

bad salary adjustment (2-3%), work overtime

Very much depend on client

Paid is higher comparing to the market. However, basic annual leave and a lot of ADMIN work.And they have a lot of assessment to keep you learning which might not be helpful with the current job. They dont have autonomy in protecting the employee but give all the rights to clients to decide.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Low annual leave and very basic benefits

Good Career Opportunities, but a Manager-Driver culture

Cognizant provides ample career growth opportunities due their large clientele. You name a technology, and Cognizant can provide you a place to work in that. Moreover the work-life balance is also good, there are no mandatory extra long hours. However, due to the manager-driver policies your future depends solely on your manager. He can influence how you move next, or how your appraisal and promotion will be. In rare cases he may also impact your working hours.

Pros

Career Opportunities, Relocation, Work-life balance

Cons

Solely Manager Driven

-

A fast paced off-shore IT service provider. The typical day involved working with the client to understand their needs and expectations. Following that, time is spent managing the delivery with our own internal teams. The key challenges were managing the changes without impacting the project timelines.

An entrepreneurial environment for a consulting firm

Cognizant Business Consulting (CBC) is growing fast. Since it is backed by Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS), it is secure and fixed in the industry. Since it is relatively new, it operates somewhat like a start up, which is great for those who like the opportunity to excel and be noticed by leadership.
