    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    There are few things that no other Indian Company offers like the TATA.
    Onsite Experience.Once u start travelling there is no end to it which gives a massive experience in International Work Platform.And of course Job security,It is equivalent to that of an Secure Govt Job.

    Cons

    If you are looking for immense growth and like to explore new stuff this is not the Company i will recommend.
    Once ur out of the project the Resource allocation sees u (irrespective of ur contribution,career interests and experience) as a lost goat which has to be put back into some herd for the mass sacrifice.If the Sacrifice happens at onsite u see some money before you explode

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professional Ethics is too much to expect but it is my earnest request to atleast train the employees to speak with some respect to others.
    Its not enough if you have 'Respect to employees' in the Company Code of ethics..it should also be practiced.Middle level Management is sick

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

    Pros

    Good location and parking for commuters. Nice facilities. Very few opportunities for professional growth compared to similar organizations

    Cons

    Corporate standard procedures not comparable to US and EU.requirements for similar position. Leadership below level of required education for similar positions in US companies, Compensation inadequate for level of professional requirements to perform at an excellent level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you desire to have a high level of quality you must recruit better educated and experienced professionals. The majority of the personnel would not meet the requirements of other companies for the same positions

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

    Pros

    Company is very strong and growing in terms of revenue and number of employees. Likelihood of getting fired is very less. Good for people who can play politics and be in managerial positions.

    Cons

    Very poor visibility
    Employee as an individual doesnt matter as they have more than 300000 of them
    poor compensation compared to the revenue and profit they make

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep the talented individuals in the company , start paying attention to them. The company cannot be run with just freshers and mid level managers.
