    Really enjoy working for TCS

    Functional Analyst (Current Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    ProsTreat employees with respect, lots of opportunity, bonuses paid to all employees, easily transfer to new careers within the company, huge company with plenty of new positions always available on a global basis
    Own multiple companies (i.e; Jaguar etc.) so they are not a fly by night

    ConsYou may get a bumpy start with the hiring process i.e. it could be a group interview, a fly by night interview or an intense interview and it could leave you totally in doubt. My interview was less than 5 minutes and I was told they would be in touch if I qualified, but it was a group hotel type of event so I didn't think they were legit. In addition, I was recruited from the web from a different company, entirely. I ended up getting the best position I've had in years, received a bonus already and have been treated very respectfully by this company.

    Salaries typically start off lower, but bonuses do pay out and you will get regular increases to get back to speed with the rest of the companies for similar positions

    You could get teamed with inexperienced workers on a project, but they usually catch up and learn code very fast

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more American's in America! ;)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great work place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBeing No.1 service provider in India, organization itself provides Lot of opportunities across multiple streams. Fun at work, international work culture, good pay, on-site assignments, nice leave policy, what not every thing a software engg. desire for

    ConsNo option of work from home. No laptops to associates. Appraisal process. Leadership is not so impressive and motivational. Large resource pool sometimes results in wrong pick.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould conduct more Training sessions across multiple domains.

    Don't work here if you have any other optiobs

    Oracle Database Administrator (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsThey will pay you on time and provide medical eventually

    ConsThey pay much below stand. They will not process medical benefits until months after you start. Pocketing the pay deduction. They fully expect to have high turnover replacing you when they've got what they can. Huge amount of favoritism based on ethnic or religious background.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to learn management skills go elsewhere. They hire cheap and focus on people with little management skills luring them with the chance of gaining these skills.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company to work as a fresher and Office politics are a key after 4 years of exp.

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    Prostraining, exposure, onsite opportunities and flexible timings

    ConsOffice politics play a key rather than employee's aspirations

    Advice to Senior ManagementTechnical roles can be increased and keep people motivated. Not everyone aspires for a sales job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working with TCS - Nice Stability Slow growth

    IT Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThis 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Systems Analyst

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros1. Job Security
    2. Offer a great flexibility especially if you want to relocate due to family obligations.

    Cons1. Career growth is really slow unless you find a mentor to pull you out of the ocean of 250k employees.
    2. Poor Compensation as compared to its peer companies.
    3. Poor infrastructure in some Indian offices. People are literally seen fighting over telephone sets in the evening right before their onsite calls. 4 people sharing 1 telephone, that's really sad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transaparent with the employees at lower level

    ProsOpen communication channels across the organization, except when it needs escalation

    ConsAge old HR practices in the organization as age catches up with the team managers higher up

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire younger folks in lateral cases to boost the overall view of the industry at the workplace
