Cognizant (CTSH) / HR Operations and Poor integrity

1 United States Review updated:

When a company grows it is important to hold tight the values as well as to conform to the policies, which makes it viable for its next level. Looks like Cognizant is not cared about it and sure this negative attitude will show up if it continues not to care for a long time.
To cite an example, Cognizant has not announced the promotion list till today which was due to March end (Almost 2 months delay). There has not been any communication to employees regarding why the delay or when the results should be expected. Management do not attend to or bother to answer the questions raised in company forums and HR helpdesks.
This shows primarily, how weak they are in HR operations and organizational communications. The value given to employees comes next.
Imagine the fate of the project if the software developers and engineers and project leads shows the same kind of attitude - ie; two months after deadline also no communication regarding the delay and when it is expected. Also ignoring emails and query from clients about the delivery ;)
It will not go till two months. In a couple of weeks they will be thrown out of the project if they show an attitude similar to what they receive from their employer.
Hopefully management will realise it's weak links sooner than later.

    The HR team in Cognizant is very unethical. They are like the mafia.
    When my manager along with the account management team worked unethically, I reported it to the HR, and the HR threatened to kick me out of the organization in the pretext of something else.
    The Code of Ethics is a document to cover the unethical operations performed by the senior management. Management team performs unethical stuff all the time. They bill for offshore staff who are on vacation. And they lie about the skill sets of associates. And they make onsite coordinators lie about the work completed by offshore. They lie about anything and everything. They set an example to the subordinates that not only is it okay to lie, but also that those who don't lie are against the organizational goals.
    We shouldn't be forced to lie by our management. And we need HR and Talent Managers who have some bit of ethics and conscience. Our CEO and HR heads should try to pay more attention to the small details of organizational ethics instead of caring only about revenue. Management shouldn't teach values that it is okay to take advantage of the clients for the sake of money.
