Never pays good salary.Will destroy your future by providing support project/Itis/Itil project.Better go for product based company or growing startup.Join TCS if you want to learn “How to write effective emails”Not for talented people.Coming from java background ? Get ready to work on an asp.net project, don’t worry 3 months training will be provided on different technology.

Very low hikes 30% of the CTC is variable i.e 10% individual performance Monthly Bonus, 15% Quarterly Performance Bonus (Individual & Unit Performance) and 6% retention Bonus. So don’t get excited if you get 30% hike. You should at least ask for 50%.

Work life balance and job security but low pay

There is work life balance and no stress at all if you've learnt that skill . In terms of job security, it's the best. Wide learning opportunities and free trainings provided by udemy and LinkedIn, etc. if one wishes to learn. Low pay; salary and hike is quite low as compared to one's experience.


Work life balance. Job security

Not very productive and not great

Good company and work assigning is really bad and salary is not given properly and no hikes at all and pretty bad team who never try and help.So i Feel it is for uncles and older people not for young people.

Great place to work for junior and seniors.

Freshers' standpoint, TCS provides great opportunities to upskill yourself either through an internal learning platform or by learning initiatives, and you would feel comfortable with the task assigned to you, major drawback is they pay you less unless you clear the internal assessments to upskill yourself.Experience people, obviously you'll get good compensation, and there is a large scope to move towards leadership and business initiatives.

Awful manager bad pay

Hated working there. Manager was awful. Didn't treat us like humans. Made us work Saturdays and overtime without paying for it. Didn't allow us to use the leaves that we were entitled to.

I being a mechanical engineer the kind of exposure that I got here and the security and opportunities to learn at the company are to be appreciated.

Working at Tata Consultancy Services has been a great opportunity to learn and upgrade my technical knowledge and skills. I have been working in the field of Information Technology as a support executive for an enterprise. Working here has provided me the opportunity to expose myself to different domains available for working with software and also has provided access to various learning tools to upskill myself,

Work life balance given a priority

I worked for TCS for about 9 months. The main reason for leaving the job was low pay, however the work culture and collaborative environment is perfect for a rounded growth here.
