Its a big question now , cause over open platform the image already defamed .

But i believe it depends on your project . WLB will differ with project allocations .



Same situation but yoe is 3.5

Now a days 50% -100%hike is normal . Dont switch for only 30%

Yes but but how about job security ? Is Globant better than cognizant ?


Contrary to what the kids here bark all day, cts is still a good place to work. There is no job security issue unless you really screw up. Good company to work with. Just make u sure you are getting decent pay.

If you are going for insanely high salary, don't expect any hike or promotion obviously. This applies to any place. Also cts is too big to generalise. I think it was in 2019 20. They fired last band people. Don't worry. No company fires you as long as you are in their budget and you don't mess up.

BACKGROUND: I transitioned from medical copy editing (7 years) to medical content/news writing (2 years) to pharma/medical copywriting (1.5 years).

I've created the Day 0 splash page (US), brand style guide (global), HCP and patient Day 1 & Day 14 emails (US), and an HCP Thought Leader Liaison slide deck. My journey has been non-traditional so I don't have a book per se.

Hi fishes,
I have been working with Cognizant for over 2 years now. The client that I’ve been working with recently asked me to apply for an internal position with them. I did so, however, now the client is saying that they are not planning to disclose this information to Cognizant and that I shouldn’t too.
I am sceptical about this situation. Can I be in trouble for joining the client’s company?
