Everything is great at TCS

Except for the salary packages, work and benefits provided by TCS is wonderful. Feel more secure for your job at TCS than any company can provide. Due to its large employee numbers, the salary range will not be on par with other companies. Most of the projects TCS has are of support and maintenance which is a bit of a problem while trying for a company shift.

Training was average

Onboarding process is good, training is average, salary not satisfied, project random, less management communication, job security is high, politics may happen.

Company to switch in at higher roles

If you are switching at a higher designation- Lead/supervisor/manager, then it is a good company. You might get a chance to change the overall process and standardize it to match the industry level.Work life balance depends on the project you get tagged to.Few managers are still working in 90s. You are not heard properly until and unless you make up a huge mess or resign from the company. Laid back attitude of middle management. Compensation is below market standards. hike is extremely low. Learning opportunities are excellent and are provided through udemy free access and fresco play. However, the implementation opportunities are very less. To get a release and work in the tech stack you desire, you need to literally beg.Onsite opportunities only surface when things are escalated.

Pros

good health care. wok life balance

Cons

Laid back attitude. Very less hike. Work not matching market standards.

Good place to work but WLB depends on project

Overall it's a good company to add to the portfolio due to it's global brand image. Working as a developer I can say development work and resultant work life balance depends on the project, same goes for management and internal politics. But that being said, most people are helpful and there is plenty of learning opportunities through their company portal.

Pros

Good brand image, good learning scope

Cons

Hectic at times, internal politics

Very good company. Work and personal life balance is great. Only thing it lacks is salary hikes. Salary is not that great and hikes are depressing. Salary can be better.

Best organisation to work

Best HR Personals.Best higher management.I worked with three different projects in TCS in six years. Lower management of "one of these three projects was worst".However other TWO project management teams AT ALL LEVELS were THE BEST.Overall experience with TCS was very good & satisfying. WOULD LIKE TO WORK AGAIN WITH TCS.

Job security is best in industry. Project you get is completely luck based, if you into good technology you will learn a lot given you give your best

I worked as an automation test engineer for 2 years. I learnt a lot while working and also free Udemy and linkedin access for its employees is highly appreciated

Pros

Job security, work life balance

Cons

Bad luck if you get into a fully support project bcoz it will be difficult to get release

Great if you want to settle with family

Like any other service based company, the work you do depends on project. You get benefits like insurance, Tata corporate discounts, brand value, and job security is among the best in the industry. However, upper management is clueless about your work, so you won't get any appreciation within the company. And I don't just mean hikes/bonus, even the person one level above your manager won't know what you do. So you can either work really hard, or sit idle, the paycheck at the end of the month will be the same. So you'll end up losing motivation after some time.Lastly, great place to work near the end of your career, or if you're looking to settle.

Pros

Job security, insurance, brand value

Cons

Salary, growth, technology, WLB depending on project
