Is it true that Cognizant lays off/fires even the most loyal people just like that by deliberately giving low ratings and by paying 4 months salary up front or is it really only for those worse performing employees?

I general words, if an employee is loyal and good, no one will deliberately give bad rating unless work efficency of that emplyee is too bad to retain. But yeah, sometimes bad can happen, for which one should raise with Hr first, it's one of the job of HRs in well reputed companies to handle such cases

It depends on various scenarios 1. If that person goes against his/her manager/senior levels , more so in team meetings due to different views and continues to do so 2. Person involved and found guilty of any wrongdoing/harassment/insider-trading which might cost the company its reputation 3. If management decides to dissolve team and there's no other openings due to that person's high CTC If it's none of these , then the management needs to give a very strong reason to RMG/HR of why they think that person is not a good candidate. And it is very difficult for management to prove loyal person as bad due to that person's good track record.

In CTS it's totally depends on ur manager...until u have good relationships with manager and u r billable nothing to worry..but as soon as u r doing something against ur manager will like asking to release from.project etc...that he can ruin ur year by giving u bad rating inspite of u have done good work...they have multiple options in thr bucket to justify that...and no HR and no one can change that....and unluckily if that year Cognizant planning to fire...then they will first see the people who have bad rating...

I have seen the deserving people have recieved 4th bucket and asked to resign

One of my friend join cogni as a fresher, served 2.4 yrs in support project. After project rampdown he got released and come to bench. After 2 months HR keeps on calling and forcing him to resign. He resigned after two warnings

It's true...Cognizant has 35 days bench policy now...if u r not able to get project in this period u will have to resign and leave..

I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-office (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.
