    Pros

    Great company for those interested in truly global experience, high tech and large enterprise segment. Offers good career mobility across functions and professional development.

    Strong global brand (Tata Group) but somewhat less known in North America. Collaborating with distributed leadership and teams can sometimes be challenging given time zones.

    I worked at Tata Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package, pay was good provided you reach targets and MBOs, people are friendly for the most part.

    Cons

    Highly dysfunctional global operations and management team wanting to service all global time zones with labor based in India and London. It doesn't work for employees located far away time zones like western US thereby impacting work/life balance. And, every month has extreme pressure to meet numbers like the end of a fiscal year, although sales cycle can take months or years to close deals - a huge mismatch between management goals (run by consultants) and reality on the street. While employees are very polite most of the time, culture is a good news only mentality that avoids critical and sometimes difficult conversations that need to occur for the same of Company survival and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and customers in terms of their needs and ability to deliver as promised. Your customer market is consolidating and relevance is shifting. Get with the times, tear down your many product silos or AWS, MS, and Google will eat your lunch, make that dinner too. Breakfast is already devoured.
