    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a person who prefers more secured job to good career, this is a very good company. Work environment varies from location to location.
    Onsite oppurtunities.

    Cons

    Work enviornment is completely dependent on project manager. If you are unlucky you will have to suffer big time, because they form the rules. Company level rules does not apply within a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR and Project Managers should work independently. HR's should be neutral to resolve any discrepancies between employees.

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Worklife balance, flexibility of choosing your own style work towards achieving the desired goals, insurance benefits, Projects spread across various industry segments giving opportunity to work on the same technology across different domains.

    Cons

    Annual appraisal & promotion policies not followed as stated on paper , mostly offline . Change in your performance band can decrease/increase your salary from current . Location wise growth getting concentrated in few cities compared to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should try to have equal opportunities spread across different cities, make the appraisal and promotion system tool driven with no chance for offline and most Importantly let not the salary decrease from current if the performance band goes down, atleast ensure it remains unchanged. The whole financial planning changes and has huge impact.
