If you're thinking about working for Cognizant, ask questions about what your particular department can do to make your hours flexible as well as their leave flexibilities. Cognizant's leave policies do not align with other major technology company leave policies.

    If you are an employee who works with teammates across other timezones, you can forget about flexibility. You are either on 4am-7am calls or 8pm-10pm calls multiple times a week.

    Maybe. There are only certain parts of Cognizant that are genuinely positive toward women and promoting women to positions of influence.

Little work-life balance. They would rather someone leave than help relocate someone to help a family situation.

    It depends on your client. However, with the increased focus on billability, you are guilt tripped into not using all of your vacation.

Good company for any Woman employee to work in Cognizant. Though the company is listed in US stock NASDAQ, compensation, overall pay structure and leave benefits can be improved.

    Vacation leave benefits need to be improved. This should be increased from 10 days a year to a minimum of 20 days a year. This will help to spend some valuable time with kids and family. This will be a refreshment to begin and run for the next year. Being a mother of two kids, children will look upon us (mother) to spend quality time with them either at home or an outing with nature.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 6 unpaid

    The total maternity leave applicable is 12 weeks(6 weeks paid and 6 weeks unpaid). This could be increased to a minimum of 26 weeks (6 months) so that the new mom could spend sometime with the kid, feed mothers milk more frequently at the sametime take care of mothers health in recovering and to prepare and have healthy food and ofcourse take some rest whenever possible.

It is a pretty good place to work overall, but the culture seems to promote that you need to work a lot of hours and be available at any time.

    More vacation time - a maximum of 12 days per years is not enough when you have family broad that you need to visit.

Cognizant offers a wide variety of roles - it is much more than just a technology firm! In my four years here I have had opportunities for growth and change, and have been given flexibility in my work week. As a forward-thinking and inclusive organization, I feel the firm has a bright future ahead.
