Very Good if you are lucky!!

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Mumbai (India)

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

ProsSince it is a huge company, from projects to projects the quality and quantity of work varies. If you are lucky enough you will be having good and understanding supervisors who will help you enhance your career, also you will find some cunning and nonsense supervisors who can ruin or hamper your career growth at ease. Very good onsite opportunities for the lucky ones.

ConsSome nonsense rules/HR policies exists in this company. Under one project of say 5 people, if 5 of them work efficiently and equally, during the time of appraisal it is mandatory that one has to get a lower rating and so on. Here, buttering your supervisor, having fake and good relations with him is more important than your talent.
Another policy is, even if you have given 3 years of service to this company, you cannot have a choice of switching your project or taking a transfer to a different location. It entirely depends on your supervisor's whims and mood and then HRs' as well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Disappointing.

Mumbai (India)

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

ProsJob Security, relaxed work culture

ConsBad career progression, poor rewards to loyal employees in terms of promotions and salaries.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease change your outlook to reward employees with respect to senior positions or assignments, rather than looking to hire from outside and giving importance to them
