    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work was chill , not too strict on office timings as long as work gets done. Good work ethic and lot of knowledge around.

    Cons

    Rarely felt disconnected as the higher order employees are extremely busy and it gets sticky if you have to interact with them on the daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is fine. Pay more attention to the office and expand as much as possible !

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services (North America) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good if you're Indian, especially South Indian (aka Tamil Consultancy Services!)
    People come in late to work, but also leave late(r) - somewhat laid back but goes crazy at the end
    Can do attitude - sometimes too confident, even in areas where lacking in skills!
    Salary raises are decent and bonus is not bad either

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and too much bureaucracy
    Too much of India based resources - who often lack professionalism needed in the US marketplace
    Despite attempts to enter higher complexity or strategic areas - focus remains mostly tactical with India centric delivery
    People will take your ideas and showcase them as their own
    Promotions are slow / time based - new hires may not realize damage done when joining at levels that are not self evident
    Lack of diversity - mostly only Indian and a few White American males - hardly any women or other minorities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve transparency and communications. Reduce layers and bureaucracy. Improve professionalism - punctuality, respect, manners, humor. Improve avenues for promotions, especially for knowledge experts that are valued by customers.
