Hello Guys,

I joined
Cognizant recently, the project interview calls which I am getting is not from my base location.
I have the location constraint, should I wait for the right opportunity or raise this concern to ADP team so they can look in to it?

As per ADP policy, one should not have any constraints and take the project as FCFS basis.

Bro, take that whatever you are getting. Cognizant is worst in bench timing. They have just 35 days bench policy. So better grab one project.

You are getting calls from different locations doesn't mean they will relocate to you there. Teams sits at many locations.

ADP team said that they have no timeline for bench policy for new hires.
Also I joined here because they are giving me my asked location

The project and base location are not same. Ask the interviewer whether you have to move to base location or you could work from your base location.

I applied for a job based on the job description and now have an interview with the Recruiter in the next couple of days. In preparation for the interview I did some research and have serious concerns about the company. E.g., most of the most recent Glassdoor reviews describe the company as a "sinking ship" with poor benefits and poor leadership.

How would you approach this situation? Would you mention the bad reviews to the recruiter? Cancel? Continue and see what happens?
