    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Massive learning .The HR BP role involves a good amount of travel.

    Cons

    Little or no empowerment addressing employee grievances esp in performance management and compensation issues or disparities.

    Advice to Management

    To treat HR partners as 'business partners' and not just a bunch of over qualified professionals facing flak from employess everyday which nobody else in the management wants to face!

    Pros

    The people you work with on a day to day basis are normally great people that have no ill intentions. There are many talented individuals working for TCS.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the leadership in the company does not seem to be very focused on the well being and legality of its employees and the requests it makes from them. On top of that customers of TCS often try to take advantage of onsite employees being contractors and do no pay the required respect to receive quality service. My specific instance was onsite at Petco Headquarters

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees more, stop letting unruly customers force you in to breaking labor laws, focus on accountability, and pay people what they're worth.

    Pros

    Excellent work culture and opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Salary is still low particularly for the associates with less than 7-8 years of experience. Lack of investment for career growth of mid level managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the salary competitive for associates with less than 7-8 years experience. Invest in brand building through proper marketing channels. Despite being one of the largest IT company in the world, it relatively unknown in the United States.

    Pros

    For expatriates, TCS gives lots of benefits. Dependant's VISA, Travels, everything was good. HRs are cooperative. Online Trainings, Sessions are very much helpful.

    Cons

    The cons that I faced are, for Appraisal ratings, Managers think too much about their budget but not about the work done and the career of the employee. Managers should not recruit the team members by showing them the long term goals and release them soon, due to the budget issues.

    Advice to Management

    Please let the employee work with the particular account, until the H1B Amendment gets approved. Request you to put such a rule.
