    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services

    Pros

    Join this company if you have had managerial experience. Company provides six sigma training that will help you develop yourself.

    Cons

    Not the best company to start with if you are starting out as a fresher. Pay is less and experience is not so much to speak highly of.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary arrives on the due date. Never saw a delay in the salary deposition. The work environment is good provided you land yourself in a project which in itself is a very complicated task that is managed by the company in a poor way.

    Cons

    After you training program it is hard to get get interview calls within the organization for a project. Your performance in the training program also does not serve as a selection criteria. I suppose only referrals work in this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Resource Management group (RMG) consists of a bunch of MBA guys who have no no knowledge of how to best fit a vacancy in a project with the best possible talent.

    Pros

    Wide opportunities to work in different vertical and horizontal, lot of project across the globe, easy to get onsite opportunity, easy to get promotion

    1. Less employee benefits
    2. resource management will not tag the employee to right project based on skill set
    3. Less Salary, the salary package is common for all employees
    4. No use on annual rating, there would not be any salary increment based on performance
    5. More work very less benefit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please realize the value of potential/vital experienced resource, respect the talented experienced resource give proper salary and increment. TCS please stop thinking that you can run the company with freshers,

    Pros

    They have clients among big famous companies in Bay Area, and working with them gives an opportunity to work with those companies.

    Cons

    Their account managers are not doing any favor to themselves and their consultants, by being very unresponsive, not engaged, not communicating either way! Being liaisons they sabotage the consultant, as well as the whole engagement in all. Gradually loosing the market in Bay Area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people who are managing the engagement with the client have to be more proactive, more engaged. Because of their doing nothing they are loosing engagement opportunities, and good hard working knowledgeable consultants are left without projects. The account managers have to be revisited, more closer monitored.
