    Not good for freshers. It is all luck where a fresher would land.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more oriented towards managing project than being just role player for resource augmentation.
    more focus required towards invention and product development that winning AMS deals.

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

    Pros

    Job security is more, if you have good technical skills and Lucky enough you will get promotions and salary hikes.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor, very few qualified managers and learning opportunities are less. Your promotion/hike depends on your relationship with your managers not on performance. Worst performance evaluation methods and policies in the world .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no use in giving advice to Management, they don' like to change. Better not discuss about it.
