    Pros

    I've been with Taj Technologies since January 2016, and though I'm on my way out of the industry, I wanted to take a moment to praise their performance as a company:
    (1) Personable
    (2) Professional
    (3) Accommodating
    (4) Responsive
    (5) Always available
    (6) Clearly communicates if I need to correct myself
    (7) Has never made me feel sorry for working for them

    I've been in IT for 16 years, and now I'm on my way out, Taj will definitely be remembered as one the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    None that I'm aware of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, you'll gain great talent with your qualities.

    I worked at Taj Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They allowed 100% remote work after 6 weeks at the client site. People at the office are pleasant.

    Cons

    Felt isolated from other Taj employees. This is the only consulting company I worked for that didn't weekly conference calls for their employees working for the same client, even if on different teams. I was asked to brief a potential employee supposedly joining my team only to find out he was going to a team in another state.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware when a client has different support teams at various sites. Everyone's not doing the same thing.

    I worked at Taj Technologies (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked at TAJ for several years. I was always treated fairly and worked closely with many consultants that TAJ contracted and employed; they were always treated fairly. It is a Technology Staffing Company, placing consultants on projects at prestigious client sites. In other words, most work at TAJ is at a client not working actually at TAJ.

    Cons

    The compensation and work at TAJ is dependent upon the client. The client basically tells TAJ what they can charge for the engagement; in other words pay is dependent upon the end client, and at no time when I worked there were consultants taken advantage of. There is no guarantee of employment, and the end client can terminate a consultant at any time. When a contract ends there is no guarantee of another assignment.

    Pros

    there isn't any pros to be described for this company.

    Cons

    This is not a recruiting company, they say they are but they are not. If I could sue them I would.

    Advice to Management

    close your doors, you're are in a wrong market.

    Pros

    Small, tight knit company where you get to know each other very well and treat others as family. The CEO is a principled person who is very ethical, honest and hard working. Good fit for those who like small companies.

    Cons

    Being a small company, do not expect large technology projects.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on software projects for the future.

    "Worst Company"

    Pros

    There are no pros working for this company.

    Cons

    Do not join this company, they should not call themselves staffing company because you will be forced to find positions for yourself or else you will be handed pink slip. Underpays their employees and manipulates accounting records. There is no integrity in management, I was lied to by management all the time.

    They lie on their website about providing IT solutions for healthcare and finance industry they use the project details provided to them by their employees working in those sectors. Employees find contracting positions in these sectors and work on projects TAJ just uses their information they have never build any IT solution application for these sectors.

    Do yourself a favor and do not join this company . I am forced to provide overall rating for the company and the only option available is stars I wish there was some indicator to state the fact which is provide negative rating because this company does not deserve even a single star rating.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Lying

    I worked at Taj Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of downtime and no Internet restrictions....if you consider that a pro

    Cons

    Terrible management. Upper management has final say and influence over everything. They are very old school, rude and sexist. Senior level employees do the least amount of work and of course, get paid the most, while all the real work is done by lower level employees who receive zero respect and appreciation. Communication is terrible and their offshore model needs to be completely revamped. Tons of turnover. Unfair wages. Complete favoritism for men and Indian employees. Experience and performance means nothing to these people. Management is constantly telling you to improve this and that, but offers zero direction and guidance. Any ideas you share will immediately be shot down. This place sucks the life out of you more and more each day. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time working here.
