    Pros

    Challenging opportunities and diversified field of work. I have worked in TCS for 9 years and have found this to be a great place to work. The kind ofopportunities the company provides are great. You can easily move from domain to domain or technology to technology. The pay is not that high. if money is not the greatest motivation for you, this might be the place for you would like to work. It is so amazing to see the way TCS has grown is the past 10 years. I have no hesitation to say TCS has grown to become a true global company.

    Cons

    Does not pay that high.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the long staying employees well. Build a good middle layer of management

    Pros

    Easy culture, supportive people, good knowledge sharing. The performance expectations in TCS are pretty low so one can be assured of an easy life.

    Cons

    lack of meritocracy, complete absence of placing square peg in square holes and round peg in round holes (no match of job profile with individual competency), rampant mediocracy, dearth of right processes, poor compensation and more importantly lack of fair & transparent approach

    Advice to Management

    It is too dependent on one person and the rest are mere order takers. please develop business skills, interpersonal skills, conceptual skills, organization skills and leadership skills in your leaders. Pls encourage dissent and have good people flourish in the organization.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Employee retention.respect to the work done.Onsite opportunites. promotion cycle

    Cons

    All activities will happen in course of time.For e: If you ask for onsite opportunities,it will take minimum 6 months to one year to travel.more politics for onsite openings.Appraisal ratings arent based on performance instead it will be based rapport with the supervisors.Even onsite opportunities are partial.Sometimes desered persons may not get either rating or onsite becz of misunderstanding with supervisors.Even if they have good reputaion with clients doesnt mattter to management. RMG is poor in mapping correct resources in correct projects.

    Pros

    Service based company , so ultimately work pressure is relatively cool .

    Cons

    Even though , there are lots of opportunity inside the company , it is very difficult to choose project of your desire and technology .
    Intra-company transfer to other ISU's are rare .

    Advice to Management

    Even though it is very difficult to accurately rate associates , TCS higher management can veer techniques that will significantly highlight one's contribution to the Project and the company instead of current yearly appraisal .
