It is an awful culture for women. Maternity leave is only 7 weeks paid. Just sad.

    The client is king at Cognizant. If you're in a client facing role you could be asked to travel and be in front of the client at any point. It's exhausting. However, working from home is the norm so that provides a lot of flexibility.

Although they have indroduced 9 hour time in office as mandatory, I can reccommend this to women here to apply.Not much of work load if under right project.

You are able to handle both work and home. There is also a lot of autonomy

    4 paid / 12 unpaid

    joining back post maternity leave you face an uphill battle since managers become more stringent on facetime work hours most projects do not prefer onboarding working mothers

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit facetime)

I have worked there for 5 years. I see much improvement in women's initiatives, but at the end of the day it's consulting and travel and that may not work well for women with children or families. Ironically, the HR team was very challenging to work with because of the leadership team.
