    Great atmosphere. Stress free enviroment if you are under the right management team. Laid back. Decent salary.. Bonuses once a year.

    Pros

    Nice office environment, really nice, smart co-workers, very good benefits, flexible work hours, ability to work from home once a week or when needed, great training opportunities

    It's an international company so there can be some very early or late calls, the company is fairly hierarchical in nature so it can be hard to get someone to make a decision, my base salary is a bit lower than I'd like

    I worked at Tata Communications full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people in the Silicon Valley offices

    Cons

    Very difficult working with senior management in India. Tata wants a presence in Silicon Valley but cannot reconcile what it costs to compete in the Bay Area.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Bay Area employee feedback.

    I have been working at Tata Communications full-time

    Pros

    Great global network. Skilled and talented workforce. High degree of experienced employees.

    Cons

    Continuing downward trend the past year. Cost cutting is top priority. Moral, pay and job security going down for the first time in the company's history and tainting the stellar Tata name.

    Advice to Management

    Unless the outlook is only short ter with the intention to sell the company at a fire sale in the next few week, not sure why there's an ongoing deslf-destruction path the company has taken the past year? Hopefully errors will be corrected to turn the company back to a positive path it had been on previously - from both an employee and customer perspective.
