    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

    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.
