    Good company, if you set your expectations right

    Assistant Consultant (Current Employee)
    Sioux Falls, SD

    ProsGreat work life balance, especially at offshore. Most projects are in maintenance phase so there is usually little or no work in most of such projects. Of course, like any other consulting firm, your experience would vary from project to project.
    The company has good job security
    Good health insurance policy
    Simple interviews, chances of selection are high

    ConsSalary is comparatively much less than market standards
    Getting your expenses approved is a pain, its at the sole discretion of your manager, who will usually discourage you to file expenses, or come up with weird reasons to reject them.
    Not the place where you should expect to grow technically, most projects used outdated technologies and are in maintenance phase. One is usually replaceable, interchangeable.
    Its getting tougher and tougher as you get more experiences, policies seem heavily skewed towards keeping recent grads happy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much bureaucracy, number of approvals required, and time it takes is plain annoying

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsTATA is Good Company to join as Experienced Professional. They are more Customer focused and all the professionals are well seasoned.

    ConsTCS lacks in Onsite Resourcing, Sometimes over commitment to Clients leads to Un-satisfaction and hence loss of Proposals and Projects.
