    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Mumbai (India)

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. Benefits like Med Insurance, bill reimbursements
    2. Lots of different business verticals to move between and explore

    Cons

    1. Moving between projects is made almost impossible by a Resource Management (RMG) Team that treats you like dirt.
    2. Gorwth is not based on performane, but on how good terms you are on with your immediate superior.
    3. For a techie, you're trained on a particular technology and then the tech you actually end up working on is a total gamble; which is very understandable. One question though: why train the associate in a particular tech in the first place at all?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. 360 degree evaluation is crucially needed.
    2. RMG needs to be taught people skills from square one. Currently, this is the worst department you could possibly experience in your whole life.
