There are plenty of activities within my area that enable me to have a lot of diversity in my everyday activities.

Lini Thomas

Account Manager

What is it that you do?
I am an Account Manager for the ‘Communications and Technology’ business unit in Germany. I am responsible for the P&L of the customer accounts that I manage, this translates into 3 broad responsibilities – Customer relationship management, Quality delivery of contracted services and Business growth.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
At Cognizant there is a lot of freedom to do one’s job in the way one desires, of course within the values and vision of the company. There is trust in people’s abilities and methods which encourages one to come up with new ideas for execution. At the end, the results matter. In my current role as Account manager, I constantly meet new people – customers, technology partners, suppliers – and getting this exposure gives me a wider perspective of the business. The office environment is very friendly and welcoming and promotes a healthy work culture. There are a lot of opportunities to network with your colleagues – from lunch and coffee breaks in the canteen to monthly get-togethers and after-work drinks.

A day in my life
No two days are the same. On a very busy day, I am travelling from one customer location to another, juggling meetings while attending conference calls on my work mobile. On the other hand, there are also uneventful days where I enjoy some quiet retrospection, helping me to focus on the important rather than urgent tasks at hand. When I am at the Cognizant office, a typical day is from 9 am – 5 pm and it gives me the opportunity to connect with my colleagues and share our work experiences.

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?
Cognizant offers an environment of growth – for employees, for customers, for the company itself. If you are looking to be part of a growing company, where questions are welcomed, efforts are appreciated and ideas are celebrated, Cognizant is the place to be!

Dr. Zachos Boufidis

Director of Technology & Innovation

What is it that you do?
I work for the Global Technology Organisation, and I am responsible for the Internet of Things (IoT) technology cluster in Europe. My mission is to deliver best-in-class business-driven technology through leadership results to enable Cognizant’s organisations to be leading in first-of-a-kind IoT projects. In this context, I focus on delivering “IoT-isation” and digitalisation assets, from innovative use cases, value propositions and go-to-market models, to reference architectures, roadmaps and proof of concepts. As the GTO organisation in Europe is new, I have also been working on setting up the charter of our Technology Think Tank and our IoT Living Lab concept and model.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
Cognizant is a big organisation that thrives for excellence in strategy, technology and vertical expertise. I find it fascinating to be leading a technology cluster in an era when the vast majority of our clients worldwide realise the necessity to transform to tech-centric enterprises, with the Internet of Things as the driver of their digital migration. Cognizant is a frontrunner in grasping such momentum, investing in intellectual capacity, and offering the necessary environment and instruments to innovate and excel.

A day in my life
Typical days include a blend of different activities, from tech scouting, research and analysis, to ideation and asset creation. I work closely with our Account Managers and Client Partners, Business Development and Sales teams, Practices and Technology Labs, and this requires frequent exchanges (audio/video sessions) with colleagues from all over Europe, offshore, as well as the US. I also travel to customer sites and participate in industry events and fora, in order to ensure that our offerings are beyond the state-of-the-art and help our customers differentiate their solutions in the market.

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?

Graduate Analyst Business Consulting

What is it that you do?
I am a Graduate Analyst at Cognizant Business Consulting. The division I work in is called Strategy and Transformation, and I joined as a university grad. I am assigned to the Telecommunications vertical, where I am currently part of a team performing Cluster Integration Tests — the last step before a product goes live. Besides that, my job is to ensure that communication runs smoothly, to keep a lookout for future opportunities and to contribute to mind-sharing activities such as writing whitepapers.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
First things first: the people. Working in a melting pot where people from various cultures and backgrounds, from India all the way to Romania, form a team, help, motivate and respect each other. The hierarchy is flat and everybody is approachable, from juniors to top management. Also, my learning curve is constantly rising, because every day I get to learn new aspects of how technology is impacting industries and what IT companies do to make technology work for their clients, not vice versa.

A day in my life
Typical days are quite atypical. From working in a team, to completing single tasks for various projects and initiatives, to simply talking with different colleagues about my own and their experiences — typical days are dynamic. I receive insights into different lines of work, which helps me in the definition of my own career track. Before I know it, it’s already lunch time.

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?
If you are looking to kick start your career with the support of an entire company, and create your own path once you’re up and running, Cognizant is the right place for you.

Having said that, a typical work day at Cognizant starts at 9:00 am and lasts until 6:00 pm.
