    Pros

    The best thing about TCS is that it has many research labs related to various fields, from finance to life-science, from natural language processing to industrial green solutions (and not many people know about it). So you will definitely find something that suits your interest area. Entrepreneurship is promoted and you're encouraged to come up with new ideas during various technical activities and events. The knowledge sharing portal have good resources and there are several internal programs to support continuing education for professionals. The training program for freshers is very exhaustive as well which can give you a head start. In terms of exposure, you'll probably work with some of the Fortune500 companies at some point in your career and you'll get ample opportunities for on-site position. The work-life balance is good, but some projects are really very demanding. The company is doing really good from the last several years, so you're mostly assured of annual raises. I'm personally impressed with the higher management and I believe it is the strong leadership at the top which is able to run a huge organisation like this efficiently, bringing innovation and growth to the firm.

    Cons

    The worst thing about TCS is it's ineffective middle management. The reason might be its policy to promote everyone after being in a position for some years. Most managers lack the skills to execute or convey the ideas efficiently. The HR management is totally missing. You're on behest of your HR/RMG for growth of your career and they'll take decisions regarding you without knowing your area of expertise. The appraisal system is not 360 deg, which undermines the contribution of subordinates in the team and encourages sycophancy towards managers for others. Even though there are so many utilities and services for employees in 'Ultimatix', little is done to make employees aware about it and they mostly require several processes and approvals which discourages their use. The pay scale is a little on a lower side than average. I have often encountered scarcity of resources and infrastructure related to work in office, and you're left to work with very slow computers sometimes without any help. Finally, there are not many social events or team building activities which makes it not so fun place to work.

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *Work life balance *Flexible work timings

    Cons

    *Annual hikes are very less *They donot offer the projects which employee prefers and usually kept in support projects where the learning curve is minimal

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training options and have experience sharing sessions among employees who have been working on offshore or onsite projects. It will create open discussion and people can learn from each other a lot in practical sense.
