    Pros

    Its only their point of view they are concerned about and your stating facts will be ignored. Be prepared to be psychologically and verbally harassed by project lead or even senior managers on everyday basis. Only those people grow in TCS who literally works to put in more hours without using any mind and there is very very little room for growth to the employee who is imaginative and has good technical skills. All freshers stay away and do farming.

    Cons

    Totally TOTALLY corrupt system from watch man to Service delivery head.
    They say we are an open system and bring your concerns to us and it will be sorted. I had a concern of an abusive and insulting boss, I raised this issue with Global Lead and HR and they very cunningly turned the issue around to me, so instead of helping me or taking my side they said it was my fault, and since I have not been doing the task properly the boss was abusive. I protested that being abusive is not correct in any matter irrespective of work performance. long story short, they twisted my complaint around and put it on me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I was management, which unfortunately I didnt have contacts or money to become nor I have sold my soul for a couple of rupees. but I would try to bring strict policies in force which stop abusing employees and harassing them in front of other people or peers in project. Is it too much to ask for a basic civilian type conversation in everyday dealings. Also I disapprove of CEO because he is lacking in these areas of concern.

    I hope this report helps somebody and he/she would choose a better of the alternative.

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Job security, salary is good , perks of TCS is good

    Cons

    Company with zero discipline. Wrong people occupying the positions and creating dissatisfaction and passing wrong massage among the employees . Very partial environment which makes the job difficult . Management see every thing from closed eye or what ever is portrayed to them they do no show interest with work culture but only busy making money for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be a little more vigilant on the security policies as they are breached by employees and they have turned out to be joke. There is a lot of politics and the people holding position cannot justify there positions. To my surprise a person who cannot read write and speak English is presented to international client for communication. Its not only making the fun of that employee but also making fun of the talent of country .

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am not sure about other organisations, but here your salary will be credited at the last working day of month or atmost before 1st EOD

    Cons

    NO recognisation for your hard work, As I worked 12-15 Hours daily for the 8-10 months and completed all the deliverables without fail. But still i have rewarded as Average Associate.
    I never gave chance to my manager to followup me on my assignment, but considered as a Average.
    Performed account level assignment very well which usaully take daily 2-3 hours of mine at the last week of month, but still NO Reward and considered as Average Associate.
    They also reduced the Package for Systems Engineers from last 4 quarters as before it was 25K higher than now.
    Its too late now, there are a LOT Cons will explain any other day in great details..

    SO conclusion is-- Think twice before you join as here you will loose all the technical expertise which you have because you wont be assigned to that technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please dont be Nepotism. Give Revards to deserving associates.

    Former Employee - IT Analyst in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well known company in India.
    Lot of projects in different business areas and different technologies.
    Lots of onsite opportunities.

    Cons

    This company is more like a Indian government office, where very few people work and the rest of them dont even do the bare minimum. Middle level management is horrible. There is too much exploitation. if you want to work for this company, keep your pride aside and be ready to kiss a lot of derrieres because promotions and plum onsite assignments favor only those who do the deed. This company is all mass and no class. If you spend a lot of time in this company, you will grow lazy and complacent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire quality people. Invest a lot of time and effort in to the hiring process. You may hire only 500 new employees each year instead of 5,000. But these people will prove to be more valuable to the company.
    Dont treat your employees like dinner napkin. Perhaps the management has this attitude because you have over 200,000 employees. So, management thinks that losing a few people doesn't make any difference.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Brand name of being associated with TATA group
    Slightly more on-site opportunities.

    Cons

    Values: Very poor
    1) Intra-company transfers are difficult: I was not given transfer even on the basis of my mother's severe ailment.
    2) Employee appraisals have more emphasis on activities like organizing social events and all rather than his/her actual project performance.
    3) Leadership: Managers behave like dictators, no respect for subordinates and their personal lives.
    4) Salary: average
    5) No safety/ transport facilities for woman employees, I used to travel by auto rickshaw alone at 11:30 at night as I was in evening shift. Latest dreadful story of a TCS woman employee from Chennai is a world known truth now.
    6) Work life Balance: What is that!!!!! You are a valuable employee in TCS only if you are slogging i.e. putting in 12 Hrs+ in a day. Doesn't matter if you are playing Table Tennis in ofc, Forget your home and family and live in office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please rework on your company values.
