    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The training period of 3 months. It was like college all over again. The training period also had a pretty good set of teachers drawn from various levels of management and they impart their worldly experience to trainees

    Cons

    Experience is given preference over fresh ideas. Lots of office politics. Compensation is also something that can be reconsidered

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
