"From my perspective, culture is "the way we do things around here." I have seen that Cognizant empowers its employees to continuously think out of the box and I believe this is a key reason for the company to have grown and expanded its operations to this size!"
– Mark Young, Director, New Zealand
"The customer comes first and understanding their needs is vital for our success. Everything we do has a direct impact on the core of what the company does. This huge responsibility drives a strong passion amongst all from the newest to someone more experienced."
– Paul Whybrow, Senior Director and Client Partner, Australia
"When we bid for work, we always try to understand what the client wants, rather than what we want to deliver. Often a client is not ready to change at the pace that we suggest … in these cases we try to offer a solution that is pragmatic and in line with the client’s culture, and then move forward gradually over time."
– Ian Rabjohn, Associate Director, Great Britain
"Cognizant helps you with knowledge, experience and true support, and leaves you to choose your future. Cognizant empowers its employees to present their own ideas. A good idea, like a good business case, is always supported. This is our culture, this is how we grow, and this is how we enable our employees."
– Johan Brummer, Associate Director, Sweden
"Cognizant thrives on equality across culture and designations. Our senior leaders are open-minded, approachable and always eager to mentor. Cognizant offers good work-life balance, which helps me to manage my personal priorities as well."
– Aniruddha Kundu, Senior Consultant, India
"The essence of the Cognizant culture helps us to identify with the clients’ expectations and achieve desired targets. This has made a significant difference. Striving to rise beyond the deliverables has gone a long way into making us an integral part of the client’s organization."
– Medha Krishnamurthy, Senior Consultant, India
"Transparency and empowerment are two important aspects of Cognizant’s culture. This means supervisors and seniors respect an individual’s viewpoint and spending time with the teams to groom them. There is flexibility within the processes and policies that enables us to take risks and develop our decision making capabilities."
– Saransh Agarwal, Senior Director, India
"We strive to make sure our clients get what they want at all times. The phrases “we can’t”, “we won’t” or “we don’t” aren’t in our vocabulary when dealing with our clients."
– Kenneth Meagher, Senior Systems Executive, US
"Cognizant instills customer-centricity through every interaction. I vividly recall Lakshmi Narayan (the then CEO) visiting our customer site and urging us to be sincere in our interactions with the customer. When I became a manager, I had the opportunity to mentor my colleagues in my teams on the same cultural values."
– Hariraj Vijayakumar, Associate Vice President, US
