Last year, I wrote aabout – I am 16 going on 17…
That was to commemorate my 16 years of service with the T-Rex of the IT industry…. Cognizant (NASDAQ:CTSH).
Why T-Rex… Well from what I have seen from the Jurassic Park movie and various websites, T-Rex is one Gigantic animal but scores very high on its speed, agility etc. It is an awesome combination for business excellence.
Cognizant has so far proved why it is the best in the world of IT. Even during the economic downturn it cam up with phenomenal results. When I quit the organization last September, they were gunning for a revenue at least USD 4.5 Bn. I am sure they will beat their and analysts estimates by a good margin given that other peers have done well as well. I also read an article that they will beat Wipro to become the 3rd Largest. If things continue this way, very soon they will catch up with the other two as well.
Had I continued with Cognizant, yesterday, Feb 1st, I would have started my 18th year with them. Feb 1st will always remain etched in my memory, for that’s what gave me Cognizant and whatever I got through my experience working there. Some awesome (and awful) Colleagues, Friends, and Family. Yup. Let me say it again. I found my beautiful, wonderful, marvelous, excellent, outstanding, stupendous wife of 15 years at Cognizant. I had to use all those adjectives to negate the (awful) word upfront. 🙂
btw – I am enjoying the time away from the corporate world, creating the foundation for a whole new world for myself and everyone in this universe.
It has been a long time away from blogging. Let me see if I can chip in a few here and there.
Till the next one, Be Blissful.
