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

    Pros

    The job is fantastic, basically if you put in effort you can learn a lot. TCS promotes acquiring new technologies competencies. Work life at TCS used to be learning+fun. There were lots of employee friendly activities along with serious timelines for delivering deliverables to the client.

    Along with he best coding practices, I have learnt how to maintain work-life balance properly, while working for TCS.

    Cons

    If lay back then there is always a chance that you would not learn anything. So no growth. A bit unprofessional at mid management level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should involve more activity and responsibility
