    Pros

    Lot of work and exposure to everything. You can take up almost everything and work on it.

    Cons

    A task once assigned to you is ever assigned to you and keeps on compiling.

    Advice to Management

    Should increase pay levels for lower rungs as well in NA. Top and senior management are well compensated.

    This is not a high paying job, health insurance is not worth what it costs, and you have to do self-evaluations two times a year.

  6. Depends on the Manager you are working with. I had couple of very good managers. Learnt a lot. Lots of encouragement.

    Pros

    Mostly leave you alone to do your job. H1b consultants are friendly but not very competent.

    Cons

    HIghly bureaucratic and inefficient. Administrative services fails to support field operations. Uses outdated technology that is poorly designed and cumbersome to use. No opportunity for growth. Literally no support for travel except airline tickets. Everything else you are on your own. However they have ridiculously low travel expense guidelines.

    Advice to Management

    This is not India. You may be able to completely disregard your employees in Mumbia but that attitude only leads to high turnover in the US. Also, you need to start holding people accountable especially in the administrative services areas. Finance AP, HR and IT are a disaster. The technology you use is an embarrassment especially for a company that want's to present itself to clients as a technology solutions company.

  11. Lied to, overworked, terminated, no performance review. Will not work there again no matter what.

    Pros

    Nothing, zero, zilch, nada, can't think of anything. Only adding text for the site. Nothing nice to say at all.

    Cons

    Age discrimination, lousy personnel practices, pushy with customers, will chew you up and spit you out. I got partnered with someone who they don't like but don't know how to deal with. I got put on a project that nobody wanted to be on. They didn't tell me about the project when they were recruiting me. That was deceptive. My partner didn't want to be on this project. The customer had to hire additional resources because TCS would not add people. All things considered, I feel used and treated very badly.
