    A good fit for a mediocre lifestyle

    IT Analyst (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsNo layoffs. Flexibility in visa processing. Flexibility in locations.

    ConsLow salary. Low scope to expand skill set. Not competitive enough for a first job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook to improve the kind of challenges presented to new hires. They will be your managers in a few years. If you breed clones then a lethargic management is what you end up with. You should exploit the potential of new minds than train them into a maintenance workforce with little lateral thinking.

    Could have been better

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsGreat colleagues, good extra-curricular initiatives, onsite opportunities for freshers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsThe pay package is comparable with other consulting companies in this domain. The exposure is equally very good in TCS.

    ConsThe health benefits is pretty basic and not that good compared to other companies operating in this segment. The middle management needs to be more focussed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are some good leaders who are good managers as well, but all the managers are not good leader. They work in their own interest.
