    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Employer...Encourage the next generation employers,Cut-off middle management if not necessary.. ...Invest more in R&D,Products rather than IT services...If necessary acquire small Indian companies too or to be competitive in market...Can target 1 million jobs by 2020.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice enough people there. Plus I didn't have to work very hard; actually I didn't have to work at all.

    Cons

    Terribly unorganized, pay is way below average, although I didn’t earn what little I was paid. I was employed 8 months, and worked 0 days.

    I was originally hired to work as a Business Analyst on 1 of several projects at BOA in Jersey City. I was told that they like having “locals” as BAs. Met with the Engagement Manager & we hit it off immediately, despite or varied backgrounds. But a more senior manager expressed interest in me, so he had to fill positions with other people. That other position never materialized & BOA started having budget & regulatory issues. So, I was left w/o a project. They seemed to try to get me onto another project & occasionally they would send me on an local interview in my region. I would either ace the interview, but the project was cancelled, or it was for a position I was clearly not a fit for. Despite having told them on my interview that I would not relocate, I was told that if I did not consider relocating, I would be let go. Relocation is fine for ex-pats, but they cannot expect a person with a house & a family to move every 1-2 years. I even offered to take short term projects elsewhere in the US, but they would not even pay to fly me home 1x a month.

    I know it sounds cool that I was getting paid for not working, but the stress was a killer, and my technical skills were getting soft. Plus, how do you list that position on your resume, or explain it on an interview without looking bad?

    Oh yeah; and good luck trying to get one of the HR people in Edison to return a call or email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must be doing something right; you're a multi-billion dollar company, but would it hurt you to treat your employees like people and not disposable resources?

    Pros

    Good salary in India. In India, while on the bench you get paid and look for projects.

    Cons

    In the US salary is pathetic. In US, they ask you to apply for your personal leaves or go back to India immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots to improve!
