    Pros

    Emphasis on trainings is there.
    Work-life balance is generally good in most projects
    However, work situations vary from 1 project to another

    Cons

    Employee value in very large organizations like TCS is low.
    The compensation is not among the higher ones in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions, appraisals can be made more objective. So that bias does not play as much of a role. Also level of experience should not play a role, but the relative work should

    Current Employee - Project Manager  in  Mumbai (India)
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Mumbai (India)

    Pros

    1. If you show your will and capability you will have loads of opportunities to excel till around 8 years of total T exp.
    2. Good work environment, good mix of different cultures

    Cons

    1. Unconditional loyalty is given utmost importance than Capability and Talent by the leadership team. Several departments have turned into a family business wherein only loyal members of the family are given lead positions.
    2. No well defined Roles or positions. Most of the associate centric career development programs are just a formality.
    3. Highly unprofessional & unconcerned new associates in HR, Recruitment, Learning & Development, Finance and other support groups - full of government style arrogance.
    4. Stooping down lower and lower by recruiting anyone and everyone. Will soon experience something similar to the US Sub-Prime Crisis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly introspect on where we are going, just playing the volume and number game. Please also look at talent and capability rather than just cost cutting. All in all please keep in mind the long term benefits and look at why the quality of an average "TCSer" has stooped down to such a low level.

    It is an IT company , please don't make it just a maintenance Garage try to be a manufacturing unit. Build skill sets to reach there. Invest on training resources ( especially external trainings, internal trainings are only good if u have a good talent which is rare)
