Support from management

Limited at best. When asking for help or guidance from management things can get very misconstrued.

Teamwork

They stress teamwork but they don't adhere to it most of the time you work by yourself and have to resolve issues alone.

Freedom to work independently

this is about the only positive because you're constantly working independently to get things done because everyone else has too much on their plate or is never around to help you when you need it.

Internal Communication

Very lacking at best always last-minute notifications and then he wants you to be punctual and on time for everything

Gender Equality

Don't know too much about this one. About half and half I would say on female male counterparts in the workplace.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Just depends on the department that you work for. In my department colleagues look down upon me because I would not sugarcoat or sweep underneath the rug certain things but bring them to light and they would get upset with my bluntness in telling it how it is.

Career Development

they stress Career Development and have plenty to offer in that aspect. But when you have no time to do any of the velamints because you're working 12 to 15 hours a day it makes no sense or offers no opportunities to advance.

Overall compensation for your work

I would say I had two decent compensation for my time they're both as contractor and full-time employee.

Office / Work Environment

the office that I supported was great. Have no problems with the people I serviced. It was issues with higher management and off-site personal that caused me to not want to work at this company.

Work-Life Balance

CEO it send out emails stressing work-life balance and how great it is at cognizant. However the truth is they don't give you any work-life balance because you're constantly working sometimes 12 to 15 hours a day and then weekends as well not all places but majority of the time certain departments are constantly working so there is no work-life balance.

Job Security

There is job security but you have to be willing to move around and do projects. In my line of work you have to be flexible in accepting new projects even if it means supporting more than four to five hundred people.

Challenging Work

In my department it was challenging to say the least. I enjoyed the challenges. I can't speak for other departments.

Inclusive / Diverse

I would say the company is over 75% Indian based. In the US there is many opportunities for u. S. Citizens but sometimes get overlooked because of the structure in which they have internally and how they place people who are looking for work from projects they were on formally.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would offer higher wages, incentives for accounts secured. Improve health insurance coverage. I have had my medications changed THREE times, and am a diabetic. This is so difficult for me to once again maintain my A1c levels Recognize employees achievements! Offer better perks for NOT calling off sick. Implement 4 day work weeks for employees so that there is better work/life balance

What I like about the company

I am able to work alone. I am not micro-managed, and am free to move about the facility as well as leave for lunch or breaks at any time.

My lunch time is when it is convenient for me, and is not "set". If I come in early, I am permitted to leave early.

I punch in on my computer, and am allotted a 5 minute grace period that is never enforced. I go to work, and do my job. I do not have to be told what to do, I KNOW what to do. I am not watched, and am able to basically implement my job any way that I choose as long as I do work.

What I dislike about the company

I strongly disapprove of the pay scale. I am in revenue cycle, and work with all patients that come into the hospital that do not have health insurance. I secure Medicaid coverage for patients, and bring in by myself, millions of dollars. I am NOT GIVEN ANY TYPE OF BONUS FOR THIS! There is no incentive. I am paid poorly! 14.71/hourly, and bring in, my annual wages with ONE case that receives medicaid approval that pays the medical bill.

I RESENT THIS! Knowing that the revenue of my company exceeds BILLIONS of dollars, quarterly, and angers me because I am NOT fairly compensated for my efforts. I can barely survive off of my salary, and am never able to do anything outside my work life due to the poor pay
