    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.
