    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services

    Pros

    Follows a standard work ethics and code that really can be seen as a benchmark to other companies. For many graduates and laterals, joining this company is a dream

    Cons

    the recent mass lay offs and use of this as a means to reduce cost and quick gain has become questionable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though this subject is debatable, at some point in time, it may be inevitable for an organisation. Please make the involuntary exits as a choice after sufficient alarms and warning to the employee

    Pros

    Very good on-site opportunities, the chance of getting exposure to different technologies, and if you are willing to fight for it, at any stage in your career, you can change your technology and domain or both. No other company will allow this.

    Cons

    For a technical company, TCS surprisingly puts very low premium on tech skills. As your experiences increases, it becomes very dangerous to continue in tech roles. All the high performance ratings are reserved for managers and they are virtually untouchable. On-site opportunities, promotions, preferences, etc. are all reserved for managers. If you are planning to continue in technical, get the hell out of TCS !!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At this point , TCS is bent on committing suicide by firing its senior associates. They dont realize it now, but in the longer run, they will struggle finding good talent.

    Pros

    A tamilian - brahmin company, you would love it.

    Cons

    Unethical, selfish management, no better than flesh traders, instead they make money over an hourly rate from employees, and ditches them in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No I dont like this, why ? It says 90% of reviews approve of the CEO, and it has a rating of 3.4 , these are fudged figures or fake reviews by their own bots, time to correct the ratings. People please rate it to a true low, what they are.

    Pros

    Interesting projects and technology which cant offered by many companies in Australia

    Cons

    Indian based environment at client side..Asian working culture..long working hours..senior management is promoting the company as equal opportunity employer and diversify working env..but sadly..it is opposite at projects level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit more local instead of bringing in 457 workers from indian. It is not sustainable. Local recruit will not like this env if this continue. i don't agree that you cant find the ppl with the suitable skill sets in Australia.
