    Pros

    Managers are reachable.
    Easy going individuals in team.
    Have lots of get to gather events
    -

    Cons

    Company have hard time sustain clients for long term.
    Hire individual for full time role (which cost less) and when project is over (which mangers and resource managers are aware from the beginning) let it go with a month or so salary. Can't sustain anyone on bench for more then a month in (North America).

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and straight forward and speak up for your team when it right without having fear from client.

    Pros

    Very good benefits. 100% of prescriptions paid. Excellent dental benefits. Assignments tend to be long-term (> 1 year). Some internal technical training available online. Each team at client site has a "go to" person for Help Desk-related and other internal TCS issues.

    Cons

    Little to no feedback. Performance review was delivered without input. Very poor HR-related communications - was transferred from one TCS account manager to another without notice. Pay is considerably below Toronto market. Serious language and cultural issues. TCS employee portal looks like it was designed by a 3-year-old - numerous spelling and grammar mistakes. Although company stated a goal of "70% domestic hires", foreign workers continue to pour in.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to their word and hire more domestic employees. Communicate with staff regarding other opportunities, transfers and similar items. Rewrite employee portal to make it easier to use and less embarrassing. Recognize the cultural differences and address them.

    Pros

    Offers 6 week of valuable training in different types of technologies. There are many types of projects/clients/roles technically available. Decent benefit package is provided.

    Cons

    As a new hire, most time spent on the bench without earning any real experience. Roles available for a new hire is usually QA or support. Project selection is limited. Resource management does not do a good job of connecting a person on the bench to an interesting/worthwhile project.
