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

    Pros

    TATA legacy.
    Job security.
    You can stay in bench for ages. (applies for people <4 years) and for experienced, there will be pressure but still can stay on bench until they get some project.
    Onsite opportunities are plenty but luck plays a key role.
    Some projects give allowances for shift timings.
    Campus has gym, badminton, tennis, volleyball, basketball courts.
    good work/life management.

    Cons

    Luck plays a key role. Hard work is not recognized.
    You will be one among many and No employee value. RMGs are rude and hierarchy suck.
    You feel helpless if you are having some personal/project related issues. You find people going onsite who don't even deserve it.(Staying on bench, Having manager contacts, cheap politics etc..)
    Hikes are proportional to the rating you get. Managers play a key role. People get peanut packets as hikes.
    Most of the managers here are old tcs employees and are like sitting ducks. They Don't value your aspirations or ambitions.You should work and treat them as if you are working in some government office.
    Some even threaten to wreck your career by giving low bands and calumny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please groom yourself technically. Understand and respect ones ambitions and aspirations. You are not GODs. Don't exploit your position. Help people not your relatives.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services for more than a year

    Pros

    Brand name, Work life balance,Job security

    Cons

    Appraisal process is too old. TCS thinks in every team there are 10% employees who dont perform and reduce their salary by giving them D band. Apparently people will look for New Job. Talent managers act as if they own the company and treat bench strength very badly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not necessary that in every account there are 10% of employees who doent perform. Nobody will stay in a company after working hard for one year and get their salary reduced, change your appraisal method.
