    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the team, life can be fun at TCS. If your intention is to learn the technologies, u get ample opportunities. Follows industry standards for software development. You can find some really proficient programmers around you (albeit low in number).

    Cons

    Salary is very low and appraisal process is not transparent. Lot of bench strength. The project given to you as a fresh graduate may not necessarily align with your interests. Recruits a lot of people even when there are not enough projects requiring new graduates (increases the bench strength). Dumb luck can play a major factor in deciding which team you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should consider employee satisfaction by compensating them adequately corresponding to the job they are doing.
