    Pros

    Job security
    Laid back attitude towards work. Nothing is getting impacted if I dont work for a day attitude.
    Friendly people(Coworkers)

    Cons

    Very poor salary
    Upper management is unreachable.
    Technologically pathetic being an IT services company.

    Advice to Management

    Give importance to your workforce to minimize attrition rate. Its always a good deal if you retain an employee rather than hire a new one.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
