Hi Everyone,

Need some inputs before making an important decision.
I have offer from Cognizant and they are promising that next quarter they will initiate my Canada visa. They are giving assurance when I spoke to them over call. Also, my current employer Accenture is also saying the same to retain me. Can I believe Cognizant? Also, Canada onsite is best in which company - Accenture or Cognizant. Please suggest based on your experience.

Thanks in advance!

I believe Accenture is having big presence in Canada as compared to CTS, besides what I’ve heard from one of their manager is CTS is losing deals in Canada, so that results in lower on-site positions.
On other note can you pls confirm how did CTS confirming on your VISA well before joining.

I was hearing negative reviews but only from those that are not from Cognizant 😂 i joined on 19th Nov.

So the the major thing I dislike is 10hrs working mandatory thing

Take in written from CTS as well.

Does HCl give on-site promise in writing?

funny

If you really want to go to Canada and have some cash with you, try applying for the Canada express visa program which gets you a PR very quickly. Otherwise, trusting on oral promises of managers and recruiters will only bring grief.

I have had several rounds of interviews for a role at Visa London office. When I reached out to the HR to check on progress/status after what they called the "final round", they said everything is positive and then set up another round with the hiring manager last week. TBH, that round seemed as if they want to make sure I have understood the job well. And there has been radio silence after that. Any idea how to read this? I have another offer and deliberating if i should just accept that.

Hi All,

I requested for Canada onsite opportunity in my company. They say I need to be there in the organisation for 1 year to initiate a visa as per policy. 3 months left to complete 1 year. In the meantime they are asking me to try for PR on my own and if I get it they will transfer immediately. Is it a good idea for me to apply on my own or shall I wait for the company to proceed on this. I m married and have two kids ..Advice pls ..
