    Strive to scale heights

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsA big organization.To scale heights , you have to strive really hard and that is the best thing about this org.Best place to start with your career.

    ConsWith its enormous size , it is always very difficult to get noticed.Before the information percolates to the 'downstream' , it would have gone through multiple filterings. So dont believe anything and everything what you hear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are working 'with' you not 'for' you.
    Organization & its value are not only measured by its net worth & profit margin , it is also measured on the attitude & morale of the employees who form a part of this organization.

    Love working for the #1 company...Despite some drawbacks of its own

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsBrand value. Competitive pay package.

    ConsMost of the things like internal applications are not streamlined. Everything is at discretion of the Project Manager / Lead. Regionalism is encouraged discouraging diversity. Regional talk at work location is unprofessional.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook beyond what is presented. Talk to the employees not with the leads or managers to get what the employees feel about the organisation and what they need and expect from TCS.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
