    Hello friend,

    Both cognizant and Infosys are very good IT companies in India. They have great reputation,
    working environment, pay package and career opportunities. But I would suggest you to choose
    Infosys (on campus) rather than choosing Cognizant (off campus). Ifnfosys is a very reputed IT
    company not only in India but outside India also. Working environment and career progression at
    Infosys is much better than CTS so you should grab this Infosus offer without any hesitation.

    Bye,

    Dear Friend,

    You have asked a very interesting question here. One one hand there is Infosys which is known as the bellwether of Indian IT Industry and on the other hand we have Cognizant which has just surpassed Infosys in revenues and became the No. 2 IT company in our country, it is known as the rising star.

    Cognizant is also the top recruiter this year in IT sector in terms of no. of students selected.

    Whether it is off-campus of on-campus does not make any difference in future prospects.

    So, It is not very easy to answer your query and you have to look for so many factors here such as

    1. Job location
    2. Salary
    3. Bond Conditions
    4. Joining date

    So, you can choose whichever company is preferable to you after considering on all the factors.

    But, If every other things are similar and you are not able to decide then go for Infosys as they will give you the best training available among IT companies. When it comes to training freshers, no one can challenge Infosys and they are arguably the best.

    All the best.
    Thank you.

    Dear..

    First of all let me congratulate to get job offer from both the top Multi National Company. Many of the people work really hard and to get into any one of the company and you got a chance to work for both of the company which clearly shows that you are a hard working person. Many people dream for this and prepare day and night to get into any one of this company and you have done it so heartiest congratulation to you.

    Okay now let me tell you that if you are Selected for both the companies then let me tell you that both the companies are of well repute and are famous for the treatment that they give to the work force. Both the company also has equal chance to send you abroad because both have many offices outside India but Cognizant Being a Foreign company can give you more what Infosys can give in terms of Abroad offers.

    I think you should choose any one of these based on the following topics listed down :-

    1. Salary offered
    2. Chances of going abroad
    3. Office Timings
    4. Office distance from home
    5. Location of the office
    6. Kind of work

    If you think on above given point then you will surely get a choice about in which company you should go.

    You can also negotiate on your salary based on the other offer letter that you have in your hand. So by this you can increase your chances of getting higher salary.

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!

    As both are really good companies and globally recognized so you can get into any one of them. You don't need to be much confused in finding the better of the both. The thing matters is the job profile, if both provides same profile than nothing to worry about. If there is any difference go into one that interests you most. As infosys is giving you on campus placement it will be easier for you to join. Also you can look on the salary structure and other benefits to choose among them. Whichever company you join keep one thing in mind that both are really good ones so the competition will be also high. So give your best to get successful career. Its not the end but it is the start and thus you will have to continue your hard work.

    since both cognizant and infosys are very reputed organizations you may prefer one of them depends upon the perks and other valuable facilities which they offered.First you compare the CTC (cost to company) then only come to a final decision. As both the companies are well developed and spreaded over to international level you can be chosen one of them confortably taking the perks and other facilities into consideration. All the best
