    Depends on the project you get...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    Prosyou may get onsite oppurtunities..
    good place for freshers with less work and stress
    freshers will get enough time to prepare for CAT, GATE and other exams..
    its like semi gov job for freshers...

    Consluck based company...your career depends entirely on the project you get..Resource Managers(RMG) they are worst in TCS..they dont even listen to your concerns..their duty is just to push resources into any projects , irrespective of your technologies and skill set. So many of my friends got onsite opportunities..it all depends on our luck and our project in TCS.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRMG are very rude..Project Managers are also not good...it depends on the prjct we get..but so far in my 3 years experience, I am not happy with my career in TCS and i will never suggest to join TCS for any of my friends.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Depends on your project

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsEarlier people used to say that TCS is a Government company.
    In current situation this may not be applicable, but work pressure is some what less when compared to other companies.
