Creative Product Realisation Director

Agnes Misiurny

Agnes Misiurny

Creative Product Realisation Director

What is it that you do?
I work in a newly formed team called Digital Works and we’re tasked with helping clients do digital and be digital. I am part of the Experience Strategy and Design wing of this initiative. My particular part is called Product Realisation, which specifically focuses on ensuring the concepts we design are feasible and specified in a way that allows for the vision to be realised in the final product we produce.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
I am very excited to be part of this new initiative that Cognizant is starting up within its organisation. We live in interesting times where technology has changed how we live and work. Some companies have had a hard time keeping up with the changes and now need to catch up. My team is tasked with teaming up with clients that need help with this catching up, which I find an interesting challenge.

A day in my life
Because my team is very new, most of my days for now are spent thinking about how we will work, and speaking with people in the organisation and clients about how we can help. I’m also taking on some internal projects to show our team capabilities and to exercise my creative muscles.

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?
Cognizant is an exciting and entrepreneurial place to work, which means you’ll be expected to be a self-starter and comfortable with a fast pace. There are many interesting things to be a part of so there’s something for everyone. Make sure you bring your passions. The people here support one another, so expect to be helped but also to help others.

Vinayak Bhardwaj

Business Account Manager – IPM Benelux

What is it that you do?
I am excited to be achieving my dream here in Cognizant to be able to showcase my capabilities ranging from delivery management and technology consulting to business development for my practice-integrated process management led by best-in-class leadership. Currently, I am building capabilities and markets in the Benelux region in digital integration solutions like API management with strong alliances to help our customers in their digital journey.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
Working here is an amazing experience. Many people think that it is challenging, but I think “Bring it on and try me!”. There is a kind of energy influx when I arrive at the Cognizant office which gives me the drive to get things done, think out of the box, and find new ways to execute things. I believe there are forces that join together and start helping, which I have not encountered anywhere else. I strongly believe that this is what makes Cognizant an excellent place to work.

A day in my life
Work is not a simple office job: it involves travel, discussions and presentations, and at times I need to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty. Of course, this all gives me satisfaction at the end of the day.

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?
“Keep Challenging”, the mantra of Cognizant, is actually for you to challenge yourself and scale up in the areas of your interest. If you discover that you have that hunger in you, then you are in the right place and you are welcome.

Ovidiu Pitic

Head of Continental Europe Agile Practice

What is it that you do?
I’m responsible for our Agile enablement and transformation programmes, supporting the execution of complex agile engagements and helping our customers in their journey to embrace and improve the agile way of working.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
I work directly with a team of senior agile consultants, passionate about making a difference through agile and lean delivery, in the context of large-scale, multi-geography delivery organisations. It’s easy to forget our sheer size once embedded in the Cognizant team: communication lines are extremely short even across continents, there’s a constant drive for doing things better and faster, flexibility is high, and empowerment at all levels fosters entrepreneurship. On top of that, our constant growth spawns a multitude of opportunities across industries and technologies, with new challenges every day.

A day in my life
I start most of my days early, with an update of the day’s agenda over coffee. Between 07:00 am and 09:00 am I take scheduled calls with my colleagues in India, taking advantage of the time difference, while driving to one of the offices. The start of the business day usually finds me at a customer location, either for regular meetings or workshops/training sessions. During the day, I try to connect to as many customer and Cognizant colleagues as possible, keeping an eye on the progress of our agile transformations, overall delivery and internal/external enablement programmes. A few times a day I might have to join unscheduled calls/meetings, as new initiatives are being set in motion. The late afternoon is a good opportunity to connect with colleagues in the US or follow up on internal activities. I wrap up at around 6:00 pm and drive back home to enjoy dinner with the family.

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?
Initiative, flexibility and willingness to grow are in our DNA. Cognizant offers plenty of opportunities, a pleasant work environment and the support needed to achieve fantastic results. However, it takes time to get to know the possibilities and it requires personal drive, an entrepreneurial perspective and passion for taking our customers further. If you’re the doer who can easily join teams, and is not afraid to take initiative and change the status quo, you’ll find the perfect environment in Cognizant.

Senior Manager Projects

What is it that you do?
Together with a team from Cognizant I work for the world’s largest sporting goods company here in the Netherlands as a project manager for a compliance/finance project. My team works on making sure the Retail EMEA department of this client has the needed systems, processes and controls landscape in place to ensure compliance with the Sarbanes Oxley Act. When I’m not dedicating my brain and muscle power to clients, I work with my Cognizant colleagues from the Digital Engagement Practice on creating a strong team structure and tool set that allows smooth visibility, monitoring and reporting of our customer projects.

What do you like about working for Cognizant?
In Cognizant I love the easiness of creating open and meaningful connections with my colleagues and with management. Even pure virtual connections are warm and function well. I like the immediacy in my connection with my manager. I like the opportunity to mentor others and the potential to advance my own career.

A day in my life
I am a morning person and I love watching the first colours of sunrise from the balcony of my apartment as I prepare for my drive to work. Early departure from home usually keeps me away from traffic jams, but not always. A great deal of my day will be spent in meetings monitoring my project’s health and progress, addressing risks and issues, and providing support and guidance wherever needed. Every day I need and want to make time for work-free socialising to stay connected and build good relationships with my colleagues. I try to visit the gym at work, but when it comes to a coffee break vs. a sports class, I usually go for the former! I often call my Cognizant colleagues, or a Cognizant colleague may visit me at work to stay connected, discuss and support one another on Cognizant projects. I have peer mentoring sessions every week with one of my Cognizant colleagues who works for the same client. On certain days, I will spend time at the Cognizant office for meetings and knowledge sharing sessions. Other days I will spend time on virtual trainings from the rich training library Cognizant has. When back at home, I have to cook — it’s a kind of a decompression ritual! Before watching my favourite TV series on Netflix, I will go through some design websites, and archive the Coursera emails for a course I never managed to start (I have completed six, by the way, and I am addicted to the platform!).

What would you recommend to people who are considering a career at Cognizant?
To join the company! There are few consulting companies that master both IT and Business Consulting within the same company as well as Cognizant does. Whether you are an IT or a Business-aspiring consultant, established or young, in Cognizant you’ll find great assignments to stretch your skills. Cognizant is seeing steady and healthy growth, catering for its people and their personal development.
