CTS is better compared to TCS since there is no bond in CTS . While comparing package, TCS is better than CTS. If you are fresher, then you can adopt to CTS rather than TCS. Work pressure is comparably high in CTS and just before they have incremented the package for old batch. So, If bond is not a problem for u, take TCS.

dear friend

Both these companies are good. But i will suggest you just go for TCS, because in TCS company you will get good salary package as well as they will provide you job security.

So, please choose those, who provide you better facility. So according to me TCS is
much better than Cognizant.

TCS then Cognizant....!

After lefting behind Infosys & Wipro TCS is at No.1 Position.

Yes after developing MISO, Railway Track Maintanance and mainly INCOIS etc. like system and applications TCS has taken a smart lead and become TOP IT Giant of India.

But that does'nt means that Cognizant is not good, it is also one of the best IT Company in India, but as you said TCS vs Cognizant thats why TCS is first.

I have attached some files that will provide you knowledge what is MISO, INCOIS and why it takes lead as compared as Cognizant.
Attached Files
File Type: pdf Railway Track Maintainance.pdf(177.2 KB, 752 views)
File Type: pdf MISo.pdf(804.3 KB, 566 views)
File Type: pdf tcs_eis_Geospatial_case_early_warning_system[1].pdf(627.7 KB, 552 views)

dear friend, both company are good.
You can never say the comparison between both companies TCS & Cognizant.
both companies are competitor of each other.
If TCS goes to a college then Cognizant will not enter in that college.
& by salary both companies give approx same package.
You can go for any one of these two companies.

good luck.

hello rahul k

my opinion was same before recession period.
But previous year TCS sacked 500 people in recession period,how can we say that they provide better job security?
whereas Cognizant did not sacked a single employee during that period thats the information I have.
Please provide information to clear my Doubts.

Ha... As a cognizant employee i am posting this information.

Cognizant did fire during recession. TCS is much better than Cognizant.

Cognizant:
Employee satisfaction is less
Hikes are less
Work pressure is more

2007 passed outs got 4.85lacs approximately who got promotions(3.7 lacs who did not get promotion) in Cognizant where as in TCS,
2007 passed outs got same 4.85 with normal ratting.So if u want less work pressure with good salary then go for TCS else go for
Cognizant.

How can you say that CTS has sacked employees during recession?Newspapers,magazines and other journals don't say so.
As far as everyone knows CTS havn't sacked a single employee.If you have any links as proof that say so pls send us.Everyone can know the truth.

Hi... if you want to have job security, then go for CTS. Or if you dont want to have your job secured and your intention is to get some hundreds of rupees more that CTS then for go for TCS. There is no job security in TCS. Indirectly TCS fired thousands of employees during the recession period.

1. In TCS they will recruit may employees in contract. they fired all the contract employees first.
2. Next, they initiated background check unnecessarily for the employees those who worked for some small companies previously. During the recession period, all most all the big IT companies were struggling, then how come the small companies will survey? So those companies are no longer available. Since the employees have worked for small companies, they will get the background check report as RED. Then they will be called by HR and will be fired with a hour of time (even they worked for TCS more than 3 years, and already the same TCS did the background check for the same employee, and got the report successfully as GREEN during their carrier start at TCS).
3. Next, in TCS the onsite empoyees will get less rating than offshore employees, since they are assigned to onsite and earngin more (its a project adjustment, and it will happen. its common). But your bad luck, if your onsite assignment got over at the recession period, then you will not go to offshore. you will directly go to your home :-). HR will have a reason that you didnt perform well in your last quarter and you will be fired immediately. Your project managers will not help you at that time.

But in CTS no like that. They fired very few employees. You will have work pressure. but almost your job will be secured.
No think decide...

CTS is better than TCS in all aspects. Who said, we will get good hike. There are poeple who is getting less after the last appraisal. Everywhere we can see some kind of politics, TCS is full of it.

Aware, you might report to your juniors regularly in TCS.

Smile Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Hello ... I am a Manager - Consulting in the BFS practice (Banking and Financial Services) for a US based company. Though it is tough to compare companies like TCS to Wipro or Infy to CTS or Infy to TCS, the advantage with CTS is that "CTS is a US based MNC" --- This makes a ton of difference !! The other good thing about CTS is that (because it is a US based company) is avoiding the political gimmick which TCS, Wipro, Satyam and Infosys is going under now ! Summing up - Cognizant is a far better company in the IT Consulting industry (the top being Deloitte, IBM, Accenture).A company is good or bad depends on an individual, but metrics like Financial Performance, Career Growth, Salary Structure and Corporate/ HR Policies, On-Site Opportunities are some of the factors you can evaluate on. But all these companies have solid financials and excellent growth patterns. To be a good performer on the job is self duty; Sacked/ Fired ? What was the reason ? Did you fail consistently ? Not fit for the job ? Lazy ? Find it out from your manager or HR !!
Consulting companies are high powered and the IMAGE has lot to do when competing for projects. Not all these IT consulting does the same thing - TCS is good in ERP solutions while CTS is good in Financial Services projects; Each one have their own strengths and operational model.
My suggestion to the Indian kids who just graduated is : Get into a company and learn the job (as we feel we can rock from day 1 and then on the job everyone is a pampered kid from some engneering college) - Get experienced in a industry domain and take it where you can. As a fresher, you are at a very young stage with limited knowledge and experience to compare the so called Big-IT companies. Sorry if I made anyone felt bad .... But it is reality
Thanks

Well, I have asked the similar question "Which is better Cognizant or Wipro" from 10 well placed IT & Software Professionals 6/10 voted for Cognizant.....!

Lets see what all 6 says why Cognizant is better:-

1) If someone wanted and promissing IT & Sofware career in Northern part of the country then nothing is better then Cognizant.

2) In the quarter ended June 2010, Cognizant grew its revenue sequentially by 15.2% while the Big Three struggled to even reach double-digits.

3) Job satisfaction + Healthy work enviroment.

4) Not a single Indian offshore service provider has been placed in the top category, which is strong positive reason except Cognizant.

5) Handsome pay package as compared to Wipro.

6) After IBM I will rate Cognizant.


Hope now it will be easier for you to take dicision.


Regards

TCS is top company in providing regular salary increment as it receives the U.S out sourcing projects continuously. It has more collaborations with foreign nations . so better opt for TCS.

Hi Friend,

TCS is always best. To be frank TCS is like a government organisation. I am working in TCS. It is not like since I am working in TCS I'm telling this. I compare my work pressure with my friends who are working in Infy, CTS, Wipro etc., It is in TCS you can come at 9am in the morning and can leave by 6 or 7pm in the ngt. Moreover as package is concerns TCS gives you good hike based on your rating. If you get 5 out of 5 rating you will get very good hike in your salary which no company is providing. Though getting 5 will be difficult getting 3 or 4 out of 5 is easy if you complete the work assigned to you in time. So always TCS is best than CTS.

I am not from cognizant or TCS, But I am from a Bank. I know both cognizant and TCS very well as I am in chennai where both have their major operations. I am part of team which handles both this companies. Avg salaries of both the companies will be the same to large extent..

During Recession, the only company to grow at the same pace and recruit at the same pace and offered bonus to employees is CTS...

But as everyone said, TCS is big, But what Big mean to employees is a Big question?

If you got placed in CTS,work there and feel it and if you dont like it jump to TCS Vice-verse

Every place is a good place to work, every place is a bad place to work... so lets not worry and enjoy what we do.. all the best...

Yes CTS pays much more dividends..sometimes 200 % of variable pay fixed for your designation..I think CTS has better scope for career prospects..Moreover as said it operates from US hence they were able to withstand in the recession as well... as they get all projects mentioning that they are a US based company.
