    Pros

    The only one good thing keeping people still coming in hear is TATA name. And that is only thing in here.

    Cons

    Well no policies or morality. All rules change as and when they want. No policy document.

    Too many hidden policies. You will never get what is promised in your contract.

    Leads and managers are always discriminate on basis of religion and ethnicity.

    No respect to any client or any employee.

    Most lethargic and ignorant people leading the teams towards achieving personal goals.

    Any new project or an activity coming to this company is just dew to TATA brand name. And as soon as the clients understand the true story, they just run....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your ego's and religious thoughts at homes and just look where you are headed.

    Pros

    Being part of Young teams gives you a chance to learn as a lot of responsibility is given to you. You get to work hands on on good projects. Big learning curve.

    Cons

    Salary not up to industry standards well below industry standards for the kind of work you are made to do and for the number of hours you are made to work. Infrastructure is bad and is below par. Horrible machines.

    I have been working at Tata Elxsi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Joined here as a fresher and departed recently from here... As a fresher u will be exposed to development in such a way no company would do so.

    Cons

    Its foolish to stay here after 2 years. The CTC here is pathetic. Appraisal/hikes are not at all transparent. People whom the management are in touch with gets good hike. The appraisal are pre-decided, i.e. even before there is a one on one session..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If u r earning because of us, then u got to give a fair share to us to continue working here...
