    Pros

    Health Care Plan Decent and affordable
    Excellent 401k with matching from day one 100% vested -I think this was the only thing I was impressed with.

    Cons

    Vacation time is horrible-
    Ok this how it works if you are in a particular account division like banking IT you cannot cross divisions and go to insurance IT. Which is stupid.
    Most their opportunities they request you to relocate for a 4 month position or 6 months. You have to keep moving to stay employed. TCS relocation plan is capped. They request you to move with your signing bonus if you just started with them. They only pay for relocation if you agree to move to a location that you would never want live in your entire life.
    Basically most positions are staff backfill, Small amount SOW contracted work.
    If you are on the bench more than 90 days you should be sending out your resume to other employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to let employees transition in between divisions. A lot your"Relationship Managers do not have strong relations with the client. Some only met the client same time the person interview for the temporary assignment?

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services

    Pros

    Work Culture and ethics, Professionalism, the work done is so much organized, rewards(certificates) given to good performers.

    Cons

    Almost no compensations, no bonuses or very little hikes in salary. Have to keep working for years together to get a good jump in salary. Signed a bond for two years since was hired on-campus.I think this is absolutely unnecessary. Especially the ones who had to leave job because of personal issues had to pay a good amount if they broke the bond and left the company before two years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider employees financial positions and give salary hikes and bonuses.
