    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good benefits.
    - Good Salary.
    - Hires entry-level candidates.
    - Offers training with paid salary.
    - vacation days.
    - matching 401k

    Cons

    - Once the training is finished you'll be idle till a project is assigned to you. It may take 6 months to year or two. That period is called "bench". You won't gain any experience in that period although you'll get paid.
    - Once you're on Bench, you'll be ignored as they only treat you as an entry-level​ local hire.(since they have to hire a set of local people every year as per the laws, so you're one)
    - Poor communication. No one replies to emails, calls will be unanswered/ transferred.
    - Once in project, you'll be treated unfairly. Lot of internal politics. And changing projects means relocation. You'll feel unwanted.
    - They'll ask you to relocate even though there are projects available at your location.
    - Friendly environment is rare.
    - After 2 years, you'll realize you're resume is still empty. You're confidence is low.
    - Zero work life balance. Expect work on weekends and midnight calls. Since the company is India based, time zone makes life horrible.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire responsible HRs in Northeast USA.
    - Most of them don't know what they're doing.
    - Communicate properly with employees.
    - Provide hands on training in a project instead of putting them in bench.
    - I hope "experience uncertainty" doesn't mean hiring candidates and making them sit on bench.

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single thing that was worth my time here. Some of the colleagues were great people.

    Get rid of poor management the first time they're complained about; don't hang onto horrible VPs who hemorrhage employees from their team for unknown reasons.
