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

    Pros

    Nice environment. Nice place to work in. People were helpful and friendly.If IT is your cup of tea, then I guess it is the best Indian MNC to work with. If by luck you get into a good project, you can go onsite in a lesser time.

    Cons

    As such only con would be - as the organisation is large, growth perspective are less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who do not like IT, do not join it. Also, the growth is slow in the organisation as the number of employees is huge. So, there is always a fight for ratings and promotions at the year end. So if you are a fresher, you will not get good ratings and band irrespective of your performance.
