Cognizant Technology Solutions Private Limited — manager's harassment!
I'm working for Cognizant Technology Solutions for the past 6 months. I'm handling a client called Orbitz. I'm reporting to a Manager called Deivasigamani. Last week I got a offer from Samsung India Limited. In Samsung I will be getting twice the pay of what I'm getting in Cognizant Technology Solutions. They offered me last week and asked me to join June 15th since there is a training for freshers which is commencing on the same day. But Cognizant Technology Solutions was not ready to relieve me from my duties and also they are not even ready to accept my notice pay as well. I was under a complete mental tension and stressed because of these act of my Manager. During my last 6 months of experience I had a very bad experience with my Manager Deivasigamani who was earlier working with some educational institution. He treat his team members like his students and to get a promotion we need to work like bonded labor as well as we need to be there in office all the days even Saturday and Sunday to take care of all his jobs etc. He himself admitted in front of everybody unless until if we are not satisfying him we don't get promotions or good rating in appraisal. Which leads to lot of resignations in Cognizant Orbitz team. And in India Cognizant Bangalore is having the highest rate of attrition rate due to these kind of managers. If you ask for any favor you can hear if you are not happy please resign apart from these line probably you won't hear anything. I heard our COO Francisco D'Souza is also aware of this issue and couldn't do anything about this managers. So who ever joining Cognizant Bangalore please be aware of this crap managers.
