Hi Guys,

The offer letter from cognizant has been accepted, and my joining date is January 2023. Can I leave Cognizant after accepting their offer letter? because I am receiving a greater CTC from another firm than Cognizant.

Cognizant doesn't have any bond, so you can leave anytime.


In 1C Portal did you fill your pre joining forms??




Please reject the offer which you got from Cognizant.. You will have bench period of 35 days ... you are asked to leave anytime..


Yes you can

If audit firms are truly meant to be impartial when auditing companies, why haven’t regulating bodies regulated audit fees. That way the choice between firms would be based on service and expertise rather than fees. It could be something as simple as a base of the % of the average market cap over the last 3 years and then adjusted for industry or other factors.

Instagram Contact Anyone?
I'm here as a last resort, working pro-bono on helping launch a small charity based e-commerce brand. I was obtaining the socials and got to instagram. The account was immediately banned for no reason (not an offensive name, client actually owns a trademark for the name) Guessing you know where this story goes. It's been weeks of trying to get contact. Did the verification codes and ID photos but nothing. Anyone have a contact for a real human being that might help?


A couple weeks ago I hung out with my managers and some other senior colleagues of mine. I’m 24, (guy) they are between 27-32 (also guys). After a couple drinks they started talking about their greatest “scores” (women they slept with and stories of these), and when they asked me I basically had to admit that I’m still a virgin. Now I feel kinda weird bc they say that there is great career potential in me, but my private life is basically nonexistent. (I had no problem talking about this w them)

Hello Fishes, Last Monday I had an HR discussion for Cognizant. Since i am holding a counter offer of value 16Lac, I asked 18Lac as an expected salary. At last, HR said further exceptional approval is required and the remaining process will take 3 to 4 days.
Since then no further update on my candidature. I tried to reach out to HR by both Mobile & Email. But no response
Will they update something?
does anyone come across this kind of issue?
how long will they take for exceptional approval?
