Hello Everyone, If we don't get any reply from Cognizant even after a week of the interview ( neither rejection mail nor mail for accepting the job application) should we consider it as the application has been rejected. Please guide on what time usually they take to respond. Thanks in advance.
If someone can verify this? I have seen so many posts here and on Quora too, that TCS release the salary structure breakup after the interview rounds, but do not send the offer letter, even after acceptance of salary.

Do a reputed company like TCS make such fake promises or raise false hopes in candidates?

Reached out to the head of Firm A (who I had a last-round interview with a few weeks ago) to say that I received an offer from Firm B but still want to work for them.

With all my flights planned on United through the end of year, I'll be only one PQF away from requalifying for United Gold Status.
