    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Oppurtunities to work in various domains

    Cons

    Off late..Nasty midille level Management with no skill set of Managing. Sulking HR persons with no knowledge or care about the way they have to do their job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appoint experienced HR or Get your HR trained dealing with Associate concerns than to tiptoe Project Managers who usually are much much seniors than HR's.
    Get Middle level Managers trained in Concepts of Management and appoint those who are qualified.
    Time to go back to Consulting services from Body shopping
