    Promotions and year-on-year salary hikes depend on not so transparent processes, Business formal clothing on all weekdays except Friday.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    No layoffs. Flexibility in visa processing. Flexibility in locations.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Use of H1B visa as a B1 substitute, Final Settlement policy for associates who resign at onsite is draconic, they will hit you with a 5 lakh INR fine if you leave them, very bad experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your associates leave you without hassles, if you treat them worthily and properly, they will never leave you

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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