    Pros

    There are great number of opportunities to develop technically through trainings and certification courses offered via the project you are allotted to for FREE.

    Cons

    There are chances that you might be allotted a project or are made to do something which you are totally not interested in, if you are unlucky.
    Be prepared for 14 hour shifts, including weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though TATA is known to care for its employees, there is a lot more place to improve.

    Pros

    Its only their point of view they are concerned about and your stating facts will be ignored. Be prepared to be psychologically and verbally harassed by project lead or even senior managers on everyday basis. Only those people grow in TCS who literally works to put in more hours without using any mind and there is very very little room for growth to the employee who is imaginative and has good technical skills. All freshers stay away and do farming.

    Cons

    Totally TOTALLY corrupt system from watch man to Service delivery head.
    They say we are an open system and bring your concerns to us and it will be sorted. I had a concern of an abusive and insulting boss, I raised this issue with Global Lead and HR and they very cunningly turned the issue around to me, so instead of helping me or taking my side they said it was my fault, and since I have not been doing the task properly the boss was abusive. I protested that being abusive is not correct in any matter irrespective of work performance. long story short, they twisted my complaint around and put it on me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I was management, which unfortunately I didnt have contacts or money to become nor I have sold my soul for a couple of rupees. but I would try to bring strict policies in force which stop abusing employees and harassing them in front of other people or peers in project. Is it too much to ask for a basic civilian type conversation in everyday dealings. Also I disapprove of CEO because he is lacking in these areas of concern.

    I hope this report helps somebody and he/she would choose a better of the alternative.

    Pros

    excellent growth and opportunity to learn many things as a fresher, also a lot can be learnt from the fellow seniors, all of whom working at the same level.

    Cons

    low increments after certain stage, does not value or appreciate the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to HR policy makers - don't let the talents leave the company whom the company has taught so much of professionalism and work ethics, only just because the policies doesn't offer a good value for work package.
