Does project have any role to play in the hike % in Cognizant ? As in if my engagement is doing well financially for the organization will I get a better hike than others with the same rating as me but in other engagements that are not doing so well. I am in Cognizant Consulting.

In consulting practice, I have never heard hike to vary basis profitability of the engagement . But yes, it does matter in cases of off the book corrections. That time your individual billing rate and profitability of the engagement may play key roles.

Not project wise. But yes, it happens depending on practice.. like data science, Salesforce PPL get far better hikes than some other practices.

No it will not matter much. The hike % will be a range.. for example for 5 rating they may decide to give 8 to 10% you may be awarded the 10% or your incentive may be slightly better.

Anyone have any insight?
