Vault Verdict


As a US-based firm with a large outsourcing and fulfillment presence in India, Cognizant is a firm with a huge global reputation. While that reputation may be less strong at present in Europe than the US, the firm is growing quickly, and has set its sights on being a major player in the market. With a track record of success to date, and almost 200,000 employees worldwide, there is little reason to doubt its ability to meet those goals.

As an employer, the firm's scale is an occasional sticking point for insiders—bureaucracy can sometimes be an issue, while standing out from the crowd is significantly more difficult in a firm of this size. That aside, Cognizant insiders seem generally satisfied with life at the firm—everything from co...

Employee Reviews

  • "Exciting and challenging with huge opportunities for personal / professional growth."
  • "Lots of opportunities to get involved with building the consulting business, but client assignments are poor quality from a consulting perspective."
  • "I am part of a well funded start up within a great big, growing firm that is focused on the broad range of service consulting and delivery."
  • "The consultancy business is growing rapidly and has a start-up feel about it, which means there aren't always formal procedures laid down. Anyone looking for structure and formality in work patterns from day-one will be disappointed."
  • "Be ready to work independently and carve out your own opportunities because you will have a blank canvas to create your own career path."
  • "Good place to work for MBA grads wanting to understand the nuances of IT consulting. Not so exciting place for candidates interested in pure play management consulting. Previous working knowledge of the IT industry is always helpful before taking up the job."

Getting Hired Here

  • "Ideal candidates: Motivated, adaptable/flexible, welcomes change, pro-active, skilled and experienced."
  • "There have been efforts of late to improve rigour around the interview process, previously there were few competency based questions. I do still think there is too much of a focus on domain skills (e.g. project management) at the expense of consulting or industry knowledge."
  • "Interview process can take a long time. The candidates we seek are often very senior and knowledgeable who will have focus in a main industry domain, some other vertical experience and has drive to succeed."
  • "Graduate Process—application form, telephone interview, assessment center, final interview. Therefore looking for a well rounded individual who can succeed in all these areas and is dedicated."
  • "There is a mismatch as the firm needs a lot of domain experts because of the type of work it does but this is not visible in the interview process."
