Because there are not as many women in the organization as men so if women even want to do good an go up the ladder, she is always considered as a liability instead of an asset. Because they (men) think that somewhere these women at work will quit the job by giving more preference to their families which is totally incorrect. Men and Women are two different creatures and bring different skills at work. So it is very important to have this balance workforce ratio in any industry because men and women are actually complementary to each other.

that if you are in India , dont join. You will be squeezed for every hour in office but the moment you ask for a work from home as your child is sick, you will be doubted and considered careless.

    In the US i work for a client so i do not know how cognizant is with employees here in cognizant workplaces but in India (where i worked for 10.5 yrs) , all that matters is your time clocking in office. There is no space for mothers and their concerns with kids. There is no appreciation for work on weekends or late hours from home.

This is an excellent environment for self-starting women with strong time management skills. Be proactive about your career path and promotion schedule as it is not handed to you, here or anywhere.

Cognizant has great initiatives for Women employees but sometimes it cant be seen being executed at ground level . So I would recommend this place to another woman while asking her to make sure that she raises her voice if she something is going wrong around .

    Providing flexibility in terms of relocation especially for female employees would help them to stay with their families to fulfill their responsibilities while pursuing their career at the same time .having flexibility at Employer side would really empower women and would bring more women in action and would benefit by leveraging their skills .

    Maybe. I have faced biased behaviors here doesn't makes the whole Cognizant having following the same practice . It might be in my area . Few other areas in Cognizant might be having nourishing atmosphere for women.

As a woman empowered there is opportunity for upward mobility. The most senior leadership is predominantly men as is the sales/account teams.
