    I worked at Tata Communications full-time

    Pros

    Free booze, and lots of it, at every office function. Pay and benefits are okay. Open plan office if you are into that sort of thing. Interview process is relatively easy, onboarding is quick.

    Cons

    No training is provided whatsoever, so be prepared to be tossed under the bus by the manager you never see when something goes wrong. A real corporate snakepit: I've never met so many backstabbers, bullies, and weasels in my career. Coworkers, especially managers, never have anything nice to say about employees who have left the company. They are also pretty quick to cut each other up when they think someone is out of earshot. Day to day life at the office can be extremely unpleasant.

    Pros

    Great VP of Sales

    Cons

    Inept management who cant, wont or are unwilling to commit to anything. They pass the buck around the entire company via email and problems are never resolved. I’ve never seen managers this week and spineless in all of my career. Pitiful !

    Advice to Management

    You’d be better off as a rank and file worker where spineless “yesmen” thrive.
