    Pros

    TCS looks good on paper. Globally, they're fifth-largest in their sector. TATA-brand is known.

    Cons

    Sloppy management. Short-sighted vision. Lack basic linguistic skills. False promises, no respect for family-values. HR is useless and no where to be found.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop sending 19th century indian-mentality Service Managers and Team Leads to north american project-sites. They can't speak english, lack manners and are rude. You'll be just another TCS employee ID in a company of thousands with very, very little room for growth. Your manager will likely look past you for someone in the offshore team who speaks Hindi. Oh and if you're a woman, good luck joining a company who's typical Indian mentality is "Women Should NOT be in IT, its for Men-only!". The company's backend HR and internal communication system (Ultimatix) is absolutely atrocious in design and very difficult to understand / navigate. It will leave you frustrated upon having to register basic tasks like Time sheets or Vacation requests. Overall, this is, BY FAR the saddest experience in my 10-year career in IT.

  9. Nice people to work with, somewhat inflexible with flex hours, time off. Business people under pressure to meet targets.

    Pros

    Not high-stress work, people are generally nice to work with, work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    Need to be comfortable working with large number of South Asians, slightly patriarchal feel.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation for training/learning and development should be provided. Should consider flex hours for occassionally working from home, not just for IT employees.

    Pros

    TCS is like a goverment office. So if you are looking for a dynamic company where things move fast you aint going to get it. here you can work as a 9 to 5 employee ... Onsite chances are very high .. In fact TCS is called Travel Consultancy Services since it sends people onsite fast. But otherwise inspite of being one of the biggest software firms in India, its pretty much bureaucratic.

    Cons

    they do too much politics.
