Proud to be part of Cognizant family! After 2 years in the company, I can say that I am feeling even more excited for joining Cognizant Portugal than I was feeling when I first started. Cheers to all the support teams and management for creating conditions for associates to thrive and for making us feel that we belong in a people centric organization!

I am glad Cognizant & I crossed our ways. I came via a friend, changed my career path completely and that was my best decision. At Cognizant I have learnt, grown and overcome many challenges. I feel there is always more to come and that takes me forward!  Sarah Bacelar TRAINER T&S
I have been working in Cognizant for almost 3 years. I was lucky to be able to work in different projects and positions and I had amazing opportunities to learn and grow professionally and personally. I had the luck to work with very competitive people and supportive management. Cognizant combines the perfect environment with the opportunities to grow. Vanessa Del Prete TEAM LEADER
I started working in Cognizant over two years ago and it has been an amazing experience. I love the multicultural environment that we have and the fact that every day we have many opportunities to grow personally and professionally. This is the perfect place for those who want to build a great career. Joanna Briñez AGENT
This experience in Cognizant has been tremendous and demanding. Implementing a new project and moving it to 100%  WFM and constantly achieving  results has been the biggest challenge of my professional life so far, but it has been very rewarding at the same time. Cognizant made me grow, pushed me out of my comfort zone and above all allowed me to become a better professional. Working in such a caring and supportive company make us go above and beyond. Thank you Cognizant! Helder Paixão TEAM MANAGER
