What will happen if I complete all the pre-joining formalities in One Cognizant portal and then don't join the organization? Will there be any legal action? I have accepted the offer letter and submitted BGV documents as well. HR has asked me to fill the pre-joining forms at the earliest. Please suggest.

Hey Fishes

I hope all are doing well !!

I have scheduled a IT asset pickup and in the IT approval it is showing that clearance will be given after asset is returned.

When clearance is given? The day laptop is picked or the day it reaches to Cognizant?

Thanks in advance.

Hello folks,
It has been more than 2 months since I resigned but the clearance portal still has IT approval pending. Sent multiple mails to clearance and exit help desk. They even asked for IT asset submission acknowledment last week which I gave.
How much more do I need to wait for FNF and relieving docs. Really worried with this delayed clearance.
Please suggest any way around


How much can I negotiate in CTS HR round.
I have 4 years experience, currently SSE in Accenture drawing 7 LPA CTC.

I heard CTS HR's are very rigid in negotiating and might reject our offer if we ask more.

P.S - I expect around 11.5 LPA actually 😅 Please advice me how to negotiate?


I see this guy KPJ(hiding the identity) in this CTS bowl scaring the heck out of people who are asking questions related to CTS hiring.

Mr.KPJ, let me tell you your problem, your previous employer might be a small company which might have done something wrong with someone in the past and CTS might have Blacklisted it, which is clearly out during your BGC.

If your previous employer is the problem why the hell are you saying bad others about CTS hiring.

If i accept offer letter in Cognizant in One Cognizant Portal, i can't go for any other company if i have better package??


Hello Folks,
Can you pls advise on which company to go for.
R-Systems : They are providing WFH + clarity on the project and team for which I’ll be working upon.
CTS : No clarity as of now, only thing I am aware is that I’m a part of full stack community.
HCL : Some clarity on the project but less package than other two.
R-Systems and CTS are giving same CTC.
YOE ~8
