    Pros

    If you want a stable job, join TCS. If you stay long enough, you might get promotions automatically. I've seen people sit around doing nothing, because they regularly mess up. So critical work will not be assigned to them. The guy who performs well gets more work dumped on.

    Cons

    If you are a capable person, extra work will be dumped on you. Do not believe verbal promises by management about promotions when more responsibilities are assigned to you.

    Advice to Management

    Negative feedback about management is never looked into, even if multiple team members voice this independently. Exit interviews are a formality and no subsequent action is considered.


  2. "You want a job akin to working for the govt., join TCS, lots of exposure only if you have the hunger to fight for work"

    Current Employee - Consultant in Johannesburg (South Africa)
    Current Employee - Consultant in Johannesburg (South Africa)
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    a) Loads of exposure to verticals, clients across geographies,
    b) Freedom to explore opportunities and hunt for them
    c) Lots of onsite opportunities across countries and domains
    d) Minimal Interference in the work you are doing as long as you deliver results
    e) Extremely conscious about Gross Margin and cost aspects

    Cons

    a) Giant of a company with a broad range of policies country wise and an extremly ineffective HR team that doesnt know and is unsure of policies- which is a shocker, you have to experience how lame the HR team is for yourself to believe it, from recruitment to payroll to Business HR no one has a knowledge of policies.
    b) Lame Performance Management System, even though the online system has an option to debate and discuss yet ratings are finalised and delivered without any discussion or clear areas of improvement. It seems more like a formality than a genuine attempt at employee development but then with 250,000 employees who cares if people come and go, we can always get fresh talent , can't we.
    c) Lack of Leadership touchpoints, everyone is nicely esconsced in their cabins and doesnt care about what the middle level or delivery team is going through, at the end of it all that everyone wants is a green dashboard.
    d) The Key USP for clients is "Experience Certainty" and for employees is "Experience Uncertainty".
    e) Bosses dont care enough to stand up for their direct reports, multiple instances where supervisors haven't stood up for their employees and instead just been dumb spectators to mail chains.
    f) Business HR team- now why do they even have the team when the staff thats there doesnt care about employee or employee engagement except for CSR activities. No one cares if you raise a grievance or complain about being affected, they just state its a policy change sorry "Murphy's Law" and "Sh** Happens"
    g) Great you joined TCS, will go abroad and generate revenue for your company , sit out of plush client offices and enjoy the perks, work crazy hours while your bosses back in India show your revenue in their quarterly forecasts and results.

    Advice to Management

    Who am I to give advice to a highly experienced group who has been in the business before I was born and possesses excellent skills (we wouldnt have been making so much profit otherwise), but its high time to realise that its people that make up this company, its not a manufacturing unit where you have assembly lines that churn out products, please please develop some employee sensitivity and engagement practices for employees both in India and onsite.
