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

    Pros

    1. Management is willing to adapt to newer technologies
    2. Employees are hardworking and rewarded well compared to market.
    3. Strong work ethics and good working environment
    4. Good job security for high performers and achievers.

    Cons

    1.large Organisation has led to numerous bureaucratic channels. Slow adaption of policies. Remove the "one size fits all" mentality. Different markets and practices need different policies.
    2. Management needs to change the old model of build/support to a dynamic thought leadership based strategy.
    3.Need to hire and tap more senior talent particularly in delivery and sales to grow into high value strategic consulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Focus on increasing brand awareness and be aggressive in recruiting experienced talent.
    2. Start establishing strong relationships with senior business stakeholders (CFOs , functional VPs and COOs) but also continuing to focus on client IT leadership to provide high value consulting. Need executive connect all round to win strategic deals. TCS has capabilities to provide best in class services similar to big 4 in non IT related services as well.
    3. Continue being aggressive by eliminating the bureaucratic channels ( adapt best practices, create policies that increases speed to business results).

    Pros

    Technology side lot of growth, work and life will be balanced equally. managerial side depends on how good we are with our senior management.. Better concentrate on work rather than other activities

    Cons

    There will be delay in promotions if you are in onsite, need to go good with senior management, Since people won't move out of the company it will be like government job.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services

    Pros

    Like any other big organization there is significant of knowledge on the company. There is scope of contribution. Ownership and accountability is appreciated and awarded. Benefits are very good. Participate in various social causes and interest groups. Participate in major industry forums.

    Cons

    You need to stay connected with Practice and CoEs to take advantages of the knowledge, contribute and grow. This is a proactive step. Projects are sometimes executed in very short period of time causing stretch for team. Company does not have product focus until recently started forming groups around products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest on Leadership and Subject Matter expertise building
