    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of variety of projects. Plenty of time on the bench. No micro managing. Job security for older workers. Culture depends entirely on project so it varies.

    Cons

    Zero training. No access to technology except open source. Slow reimbursement method. Horrible company web portal, not very stable. No feedback on project proposals. Working with India teams on India time very challenging; meetings at 10 pm? Acoustics on India calls are terrible. Installing basic software on laptops unlikely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More clarity on structure, goals of team etc.
