Infotech company [f500link]Cognizant Technology Solutions[/f500link] is a growth machine. The provider of consulting, technology, and outsourcing services has increased its sales an average of 17% over the past five years. But the New Jersey company has faced challenges too. Cognizant president Gordon Coburn recently resigned, and the company incurred $27 million in costs after a corruption probe concerning payments in India. Cognizant is carefully monitoring the political debate about the quota-based H-1B visa, as it’s one of the biggest hirers of foreign workers in that visa category.
