    Pros

    The best part about TCS is you have different choices at your hand at the start of your career and yes TCS is a comprehensive hub of all ongoing software development activities.

    Cons

    You are sometimes made to stay on bench for prolonged days and you become stagnant and most of the times freshers don't have choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep some exams or any other process by which u can give people with talent to work in their choice of interest

    You are going to be unnoticed in all the crowd.

    Tha management is not technical. So, if you are expecting your manager to understand some technical challegnes you are facing, this might not be a good fit

    Not too good - Everything based on luck

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Hyderābād (India)
    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Hyderābād (India)

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

    Pros

    1) Job security - if one project shuts down for some reason, u are still retained in the company
    2) Infrastructure is good at most offices. Cab/Shuttle facilities etc are there.
    3) Long term Onsite opportunities in some projects
    4) More choice for relocation, as TCS has offices in almost all cities of India.

    Cons

    1) Initially when u join as fresher, ur first project totally depends on luck, instead of ur technical skills
    2) Extremely Poor Handling of Freshers by RMG. U are thrown into projects without considering ur technology. Java guys thrown into Mainframe projects and vice versa. Not easy to get released from projects. Once u are assigned to an irelevant project, u end up wasting at least one year struggling with work, and asking for release.
    3) Based on the client requirement, u may have to extend ur work timings to 14-15 hrs a day, with no extra benefits for overtime.
    4) May have to wait long time on bench to get a suitable project.
    5) If u are on bench for too long (more than 4 months), there is lot of pressure from RMG(Resource mgmt group) to move to chennai (Which is not a preferred place for most of the north guys and TCS has maximum projects in chennai). For example if u are on bench in hyderabad, u might be forcefully allocated to a chennai project, and if u say u dnt wana move to chennai, they threaten to terminate u.
    6) Too much of regional politics.
    7) Salary Decrement - March is the time for appraisal. If suppose u worked hard for the rest of the year, but got less work in Jan n Feb, u will be given poor rating, and ur CTC will be decreased. Not getting an increment is one thing, but getting a decrement is too bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) RMG really need to improve the project allocation process, so that most employees, if not all (coz there are so many), get assigned to projects relevant to their technology. If u cant allocate properly, dont hire so much.
    2) Project/Delivery Managers should not make associates work long hours based on the illusion of an onsite opportunity. One of the main reasons for attrition.
    3) Management too afraid to invest in employees. If a particular technology is required for the project, but too expensive to learn, management doesnt arrange the training for u. U end up struggling trying to meet the client reqmts without adequate training.
