Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Cognijit is the best, in TCS people have no work and play football all day. Cognizant employees are hard working and have a kind heart <3

Both Companies are good,infact TCS is much better than Cognizant.TCS is the top IT Company of India.TCS is the company of Tata Group.This company provide you better salary then Cognizant.

if You want to go high in this company,you should have deep knowledge about a programming language like JAVA,.Net etc,also a Database Language like Oracle,Mysql etc.You should have deep knowledge about IT related Terms and Practical Knowledge about them.

TCS will also provide you better future and other profits.You can get the good position with these little efforts.So according to me,go with TCS and bright your future with it.

I think TCS is better than Cognizant but there is some bad with it also as thee is bond with you but in all other aspects TCS is better as it provides you handsome salary and also less work pressure as compared to Cognizant.

Mainly for Fresher TCS is very good as they pay you according to your knowledge and skill alter to Cognizant

Hi Guest,

Tata Consultancy Services(TCS) and Cognizant(CTS) both are India's leading IT companies offering handsome salary to the freshers.

But as per statistics TCS is Indian's Top IT company by employee strength and Generating big revenue.And also have more Job security for employees than Cognizant.

So TCS is obviously better than Cognizant.

All the best.

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Hello Sir,

TCS:: Tata Consultancy Services

In this world there are many companies which have better TCS like that infosys and wipro.
In my suggestion wipro is best tcs. Here you can enjoy working and a good environment which suitable to everyone. TCS is the best place to work in. On the other hand there are lots of companies but I think this one is good.

Good Luck...

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Its not that TCS is a good choice and Cognizant is not a good choice for you to join.

There will be good career scope for you by joining in any of these companies.

Only thing is that you have to prove yourself and should give good performance
-to get good salary hike
-to be promoted to next level
-to get onsite job opportunity etc.

If you get job opportunity in both these companies, I suggest you to go for TCS.

The reason why I mentioned like this is, many of the candidates will believe that TCS job is almost like a Government job.

There won't be any termination at all from the job irrespective of market conditions.

Every year TCS pays so much of amount in the form of salaries for the candidates who are in bench.

It will wait until the resource is matched to a particular project.

Hope this information is useful for you.

Wish you all the best.

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

Yes its 100% true. Even 3 yrs experience guys will act as PL and you have to report to them even if you have 7 years.
And one more think to say, if you got rated 4 now and previous rating is 5(5 is top performer) your salary will get reduce, u have to maintain consistent rating else it will go down loki anything in terms of Lakh.

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Cognizant is a good company, it's a US based company, but as it was started by Indians Still it's controlled by Indians only. All higher management people sitting in Chennai, so don't think it's some US like feel in it. Pros- You'll get lot to learn, you can get opportunities across different projects, increment is generally good Cons- doesn't seem to have any retention policy. Work in shifts esp. in BPO- 7 am to 4 pm, 4 pm to 1 am, 10 pm to 7 am, highly disorganized- you can see this from the day you'll join, something will come up all of a sudden and instead of managers etc planning anything, things go like a chaos. However, this can be good for people who like easy- go life, as in such scenario you don't feel pressurized, rather you can have something to laugh bout ;-)
I dunno much abt TCS, but as I've heard it's more like a govt job, hardly anyone gets fired, increments are small, and not much elarning opportunities, but good if you're at manager & above level, you can retire from here

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Cognizant (CTS) is far better than any of the IT company in the India comparing HR facilities, work, salary and job security. I know it very well, because i am working on CTS from last 2 years.

TCS Vs CTS


Tata Consultancy and Cognizant are undoubtedly counted in the leading IT industries of India..

But considering the after math of recession and in the wake of the recent pay hikes..TCS stands far ahead of Cognizant..

TCS has also gained the number 1 IT industry in India..

A candidate is eligible for appearing for TCS and Cognizant only if :-

>> The candidate has secured a minimum of 60% throughout 10th,12th and B.Tech..

>> Candidates should not have any backlogs at the time of the placement drive..


Candidates need to clear following rounds in order to get recruited for the company :-

>> Aptitude Test
>> Technical Interview
>> HR Interview


I have attached some previous year question papers of both CTS as well as TCS for your reference..

Go through them and I hope they will help you out in your preparations..

all the best..

With Warm Regards

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Hi,
You can prefer CTS over TCS. CTS has a much better working environment. TCS has much more work pressures. Also employees are less fired from CTS than TCS(including the most infamous recession period ). You get there a lot more friendly top level boss and managers than TCS. The salary level although is more or less similar for both. But the thing that makes TCS a little behind than CTS is that, there have been instances where an employee is fired after he is recruited just a year before. These sudden loss of jobs are not heard of in CTS.

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Hello friend,
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.
Thank you.

Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

I work for Corgnizant and upto my knowledge Cognizant is the best. coz i hav gathered many information about tcs and compared it with cognizant.
Just because TCS is the top listed company it cant be better.

tcs is older andvery fast growing..
cognizant is younger than tcs...
Infosys and Wipro got left behind in the growth scene in 2011, while Cognizant blasted the others with its explosive growth. TCS remained the top Indian IT services company and saw its global ranking improve from 21 to 16 in 2011.. in 2010 its ranking was 21.. whereas cognizant ranking was 33.. so tcs being older is a better option and fast growing company...

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

TCS vs. CTS Dilema,

My dear friend/(s),

I think the first question you would want to ask yourself is "what are my short term/long term goals?" ex. Want to learn the work environment and then jump to another company. or I want to work in TCS/CTS (or any XYZ) company because that is my dream company. Want money. or Want overseas assignments.. etc.

Let me tell you something from my experience (and some of my friends too), one company is never better than others unless you love doing what you do there. Even if you work for Microsoft only to find yourself being dragged to the office everyday, you will hate it. So, decide based on what your goals are in life what you want to become or achieve in next 2/5/10/25 years.

Someone has said.. "Salary is reflection of value you provide the company"! very true, because the seperation of the employee/employer coms when either of party thinks that the there is imbalance between the salary vs value.

All the best. I hope you make a good decision in life.

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Hi... Guys its not abt who is big/small.... As far as i know, it comes down to the project that a person gets tagged tat matters the most... Both companies are good, Secured n productive... As one gains experience, the job gets better... if one is technically strong... its time to see money, he can jump from one place to another ! Remember, loyalty to the company is just a myth. If a person plans his career and sees big... he/she needs to sacrifice his companions/team. So as a fresher, try to gain knowledge and XP...dont bang ur head on finding who is big !

Dear,
TCS or CTS both are good companies. Salary is almose same, job security is better in Cognizant, no bond in cognizant, projects are mostly of USA no, in TCS you might get better onsite chances. But on an average in terms of job security and no bond Cognizant is better than TCS

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

TCS makes ur first prefence coz Tata Consultancy Services is undoubtedly amongst the best of the companies to work for. This is a definite answer you would get whenever you ask freshers about the company they dream for. Let me discuss with you the top three reasons which make it the best company to work for.

a) Reputation Of The Company Would Make You Feel Proud

TCS is one company which has consistently delivered ever since its foundation. It is a company which is known widely amongst Indians and foreigners for its quality of work and efficient global delivery model. This reputation is sure to draw a sense of pride if you work for the company. Literally there is no one in India who wouldn't know TCS. The company has won several national and international awards to add to its reputation.

b) Excellent Work Culture

Work culture is at its best in TCS. It is not a company where there is bossing around, bias etc. The policies of the company and the practice of the seniors have brought upon the company one of the best work cultures you can ever witness in an Indian company. Work culture plays a very important role in bringing the best from the employees. Not only is the salary pay scale that matters, but the way the company treats its employees is a very important factor for the success of any company . TCS is probably the company with best work culture amongst IT services in India (Some say Infosys is as good as TCS when considering work culture.)

c) Excellent Growth Opportunities

The ever performing company has its operations across almost all domains you can imagine including IT services for healthcare, banking, insurance, logistics etc. Also the company literally works on every possible technology starting from legacy mainframes to cutting edge technologies. This naturally gives employees a great platform to get equipped in domain knowledge as well as in technical stuff. A job experience with TCS is sure to get you a job in any other company so easily.

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.
TCS business growth is definitely high, but the growth doesnt seem to filter down to the employees. CTS on the other hand gave its employees 150 to 200% incentive this year.

http://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2011-03-15/news/28691439_1_employee-mark-industry-leading-growth-bonus-payout

I have also verified this info with my friends in CTS.

Anything below you are scewed. you might end up getting less than what you are currently getting right now.

We cannot be sure about anything, you can be sure only when u get the letter. But you can be guaranteed you wont lose anything if you get 4 or 5.

Re: Which company is better Cognizant OR TCS?

Most of the posts are in favour of TCS.....but myself being an employee of CTS will always vote for CTS...though we know that TCS gives a betr job security but hey presto!!!TCS did fire at recession time but CTS dint and moreover work culture and environment is far betr in CTS, there is obviously less politics and more security. TCS may be the number 1 but from business perspective but CTS is number from from employee satisfaction perspective and onsite opportunities
