    Current Employee - IT Analyst in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company offers vast domains to work in, it has operations in almost all the countries of the world including all the domains an IT can think of. With over 350,000 employees it gives immense opportunity to learn people management. This company really provides a very high job safety and stability even during the time of recession of 2008-09.

    Cons

    The growth is slow, even the process for salary hike is unsatisfactory to many. Resource might be doing good but the voice will not be heard till highest level. The company doesn't differentiate between valuable resource and invaluable resource which is good at one side and bad at other side. This also leads to non-competitiveness among resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management to desperately look into the appraisal process which actually starts with fair practice but at the end becomes the mercy/attitude of supervisor. Also the management should look more deeply in compensation and benefits side providing fair share every year. It should also look for high attrition rate.
