    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.

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They will pay aggressively for the talent to look competent.

    Cons

    This company is the utter bile of consulting firms. Their internal network and infrastructure is weak and so thoroughly unusable over 60% of everyones time is used compensating for bad infrastructure spent time nursing admin work. Therefore this company has created for itself a personality of hiring lazy people who feel their work is to attend meetings and complete admin work to compliance. Everything to artificially stuff a stat sheet, nothing to provide any substance or content.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school. Learn what it means to build a service top down of substance.
