    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services

    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 have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Better opportunities for associates from offshore.
    A lot of room to learn.
    Work culture depends on the project.
    Upper management is proficient in getting new businesses.

    Cons

    Promotions will be totally dependent more on your relationship than on your performance. You should be a "Yes" master to your supervisors.
    Company values its other assets more rather than employees.
    Uncertainty on the tenure of your role in the project.
    Even though the pay is at par with the market, take home will be less. Don't know how!
