Flexible company but average paymaster

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than 10 years

ProsStrong leadership with good technical foundation. Large organization with multiple opportunities of work. Flexible towards locations across the globe. Operating units have made company more flexible and agile with higher number of management roles.

ConsWeaker in HR policies with limited authority with HR. Business lines drive the culture, employee satisfaction etc. Sometimes people have no where to go in case of conflict. Average paymaster in all areas or skills. Therefore, faces high attrition rates.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome a global company instead of Indian company operating globally

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A stepping stone

Assistant Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

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

ProsOpportunities working on mission critical systems. I was able to travel extensively thanks to TCS. Also I learned about the financial industry from the ground up. They encourage associates to take certifications and improve their skills.

ConsAs an outsourcing company they don't own the systems they support therefore there is a glass ceiling for a TCS resource working for a bank or a financial services firm. The accounting, finance and admin departments are very disorganized. It can take months for expenses to get reimbursed.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people as assets, not as numbers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
