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

    Pros

    Low risk of losing your job

    Flexible hours

    You don't necessarily need a Computer Science degree to get a job in software. (They accept math or other engineering degrees as well)

    Cons

    Your career goals may be disregarded

    Most employees are incompetent (and so can you!)

    Uncompensated overtime. There is a prevailing culture of working through lunch and working late hours frequently.

    Your job may be to sit in a chair and be billable to a client.

    Little diversity in the workplace. (90% of employees are Indian born)

    Advice to Management

    Management appears to be trying to fix the diversity problem by hiring local, however the practice of spreading out all of the local hires leaves everyone miserable.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    a starter to your career for non-expert, average / below average people with limited skill set.

    Cons

    low pay, high expectation, no / minimal learning (mostly support is required), servicing like a servant to client (whatever non-sense clients say you should say "OK" with no complaint!), There is not a north american culture within the company (mainly Indian people (brown people) work with this company in NA, barely a white person has been hired since I worked there!!), working with many immigrants/temporary workers on work permit from India/pakistan who do not know the life style in NA, annoying manager who does micromanaging, non-accommodating human resource associates (dont expect any raise or promotion), horrible vacation benefits, no work/life balance (you work in the weekends), and etc.

    I worked at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to meet and work with clients

    Cons

    Very poor supervisors, managers and HR. The company is extremely unethical, unprofessional and manipulative when it comes to billing clients, paying their employees and preparing T4s for the employees. They follow a lot of name-sake processes which allows employees to address their concerns but the concerns and issues raised by the employees are never looked into. Appreciations in this company are never meant for the employees who worked on the task but for the employees towards whom the manager is biased.

    Advice to Management

    Being a huge company does not mean you should be biased towards the higher management. The employees who bring in business should be appreciated and rewarded accordingly. Be honest!

    Pros

    Some client are very good company, the experience is good.

    Cons

    Not treat people with respect, overtime without pay, ask you to pass an certificate with your spare time every year.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect, don't ask employee to use their spare time to work for you or get certificate that is not necessary for their current jobs.
    also please pay for overtime.
