Consulting

Any thoughts on Sr. Director / Partner level work at Cognizant? Whats the culture and opps like over there? Always put them in the same category as Wipro, TCS, Infosys etc rightly or wrongly.

Which practice OP? Things are changing fast at Cognizant. Really big push towards 'digital' across the entire company (Check out Cognizant 2020). Digital was 27% of the revenue last year (growing at 30%) and we compete with Accenture and Deloitte for most of this work. Rest of the business is traditional IT outsourcing and the competitors here are the typical Indian IT players. For you, I'd say that opportunities will be good simply because of the growth momentum (checkout the stock price as a proxy). Last year the company hired 6K Green card + US Citizen employees and has committed publicly to hiring 25k more over the next 5 years. Go find the Deutsche Bank analyst report from 2/13/18 - it has some good insights.

It's pretty much the same as those three. Avoid. Cognizant's wiki page says they were involved in H1B fraud as well. So... 😷

On average I would say that Cognizant is better than the other three, given differences at industry and group level. They have grown quite a lot in last 3 years.
