    Hi

    It is great that you have been selected in both reputed companies. Both are high profile companies. Regarding Infosys they are giving the best training facilities and with too much workload but one thing i must say that Infosys is one of leading Software companies on the other hand cognizant treat its employees well. If you are a fresher then you must opt infosys it will not only trained you well but you will also get good exposure and experience in leading software company. On the other hand if you are experience then go for cognizant where you get your desired package. Most importantly should be positive in mind so that you can decide what is best for you. You can also consult your senior friends for good guidance and advice. Mainly the thing it is all up to you that what you decide.

    best of luck

    Infosys has one of the toughest probation period with lots and lots of induction tests projects and really there is workload higher than most of the IT companies.But there is no success in the world without hardwork especially in the private sector.If you are bothered about workload,go for govt jobs because today or tomorrow,you will have to face the brunt.Better prepare yourself for challenging projects and start your career with INFOSYS where you will get to learn more and you have better chances of prospering and that also in rapid strides.

    Re: Which should I join Cognizant or Infosys?

    Dear Friend,

    Cognizant and Infosys both are the one of the best MNC in India. So no need to think much about the company. My opinion is that first of all join any one of the company and try to earn experience. After having experience if you find that there is too much workload in the company or any other matter with you then you can migrate yourself in any other company. So first of all try to have some experience.

    All the Best

    Dear Friend,You can join Infosys or cognizant according to your choice and interest, if you are interested to get good knowledge with some pressure and good salary package then Infosys is the best company for you. They provide good training and facilities more than cognizant. The workers in Infosys says that the atmosphere is much similar to college days.You can get more details by seeing the videos of Infosys link is http://www.infosys.com

    Hai Friend...,





    -->> It depends on the parameters that you set for yourself. What i mean the features that you want in your job.


    As the IT boom is strongly coming back, you can choose either of the companies.

    But to the best of my knowledge, Infosys will be better than Cognizant
    -in terms of work load to employees
    -in terms of quality training
    -in terms of better working environment.

    If these are the things that you would like in your job, then go for Infosys.

    If you are interested to take big challenges and high salaries, choose Cognizant.



    ......GOOD LUCK..........

    Re: Which should I join Cognizant or Infosys?

    Both CTS and Infosys are high level company.Also both companies salary is same for freshers candidate.But the training environment is better for Infosys.Because they conduct 6 months training with pressure.But if you have cleared the training period then you are safe.

    If you are not strong in academic session then you can go for CTS.Because here you can find out the relaxed mode.Also the training is easy.

    It is depend on you to join in which company.If you want safe jobs then you can go for CTS.Because CTS is better for Freshers candidate.

    Re: Which should I join Cognizant or Infosys?

    Hi,

    Congrats that you have been selected in both of the companies.
    Well both companies are good as they are the IT giants, see workload is everywhere and as you are into the initial stage of your career you should not look in the context work pressure , I will suggest you to join Infosys as Infosys is bigger in size than to cognizant and you will get a good corporate exposure, besides this as you will get a chance to get trained in Asia's biggest training center i.e, Infosys learning Institute in Mysore. If you will work with company like infosys you will get weight age in your coming days , so I will highly recommend you to join Infosys. Anyways decision is yours and both companies are good to work with .

    All the best.

    Hi,

    Join Infosys it is one of best software company founded by Narayan murthy. It's really good for you to join this company vecause many candidates will lose this opportunity. The Infosys is very particular in short listing candidates and their processsing and screening is very strict and no biasing or anything as such. The Infosys campuses are too good and you will really enjoy working for this company and you will get paid well also compare to other companies of software. So think and decide and join Infosys.

    Re: Which should I join Cognizant or Infosys?

    Well, Not sure if you have already made your choice. Go with Cognizant coz you will love to stay here more than any other company. The leadership here has better vision and it will reflect in you gradually. Have fun while learning and why do want to undertake pressure durign the initial days. I see that there are plenty of oppurtunities you can create in this company. No concept of ties and formals..its very open culture, joyful ofcourse there will be pressure when you start your work...You have wonderful programs like outreach where you get oppurtinutes to serve poor people, take classes for schools etc that will bring the best in you.

    The processess are flexible unlinke infy they have a stupid program and everyone must follow that...

    Dear Friend,
    Congrats for being selected in both Infosys and CTS.

    Both the companies are one of the top MNCs.

    Infosys is a very reputed company and also provide one of the best training facilities. This training facility will be very helpful for your future.

    Though Infosys gives the best training facility the work load is also very high. But in private sector you have to take the work load and stress of work.

    Cognizant is also a very reputed company. It may not give much work pressure at the beginning but definitely work load will be there as you will gain
    experience.

    You should join Infosys according to me. After getting the training and some experience if you think the work load is more you shift to any other company where this experience and training will be helpful.

    Re: Which should I join Cognizant or Infosys?

    Dear no doubt infosys is much much better then cognizant.....


    Infosys have an excellent training structure, employees are rotated on different jobs to get an hand on experience of each field rather building career in one specific field only.....

    which to certain extent lacks in cognizant....


    though infosys has low package comparative to cognizant....

    rest is your choice

    Re: Which should I join Cognizant or Infosys?

    Dear Friend;
    Infosys is one of the top IT companies in the world and it has the world class training facilities which would not be offered to you by CTS though it is an American multinational company. Infosys is the top glamorous IT company in India.

    The salary package is same for both of the companies.
    But the training is not so bounded in CTS.
    With training experience in Infy you can manage very high salaried jobs after ending the bond period of Infy for the other companies.

    Now its your choice to chose Infy or CTS depending on your load capacity.
