    Pros

    None that i can think of. Even my Indian colleague who was my lead java developer said he wouldnt work for TCS

    Cons

    Not hiring chinese and anyone that arent Indian

    I got a job description and after sending my profile to be considered, they sent back an email and flat out said that they wasnt hiring Chinese.. i told them i wasnt chinese, but vietnamese... they changed their tone and said they werent hiring Vietnamese consultants either.. They were only considering Indians..

    Well i guess the consultant business got its bad rap because of companies like this.

    I wouldnt consider a full time with company like this until i got an indian citizenship or something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whats the deal of hiring only Indian consultants?
