    Pros

    Being an IT giant, the main pros - many clients, hence long term onsite opportunities, less notice period, many leaves per year

    Cons

    Being employing more that 3 lacs employee, to get long term opportunities is tough, learning scope is less, salary is less

    Pros

    Great Logo to have on your CV

    Cons

    Rubbish management practices. The company is not in touch with its people.
    Delivery wise, they are very poor and always losing work to their competitors due to escalations. This is because they are not managing their people on the ground effective and have a lack of resources on ALL projects (to save on profit margins). This in turn gives a lack of confidence from the client side and their do not win much work with them.

    CEO has great vision, but really needs to see is people on the ground and under some of their key on policy issues.....

    Advice to Management

    Chandra, please review your management

  3. A good employer with a excessively large workforce

    Pros

    Large brand TCS uses to advantage

    Cons

    Possibly the worst company I've worked for in Europe. Everyone runs around like headless chickens.

    Work culture say 'yes' to everything = do no action. You will be overworked for little to nothing in return.

    Overcharge clients, high margins poor service/delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Not very forward thinking. Companies like Cognizant, Wipro, Capgemini are better Managed.

    Reward people for hard work.

    Pros

    Family friendly with telecommuting flexibility where possible

    Cons

    No career prospects and/or organisational support if you are not in the inner circle and from India.
    Dirty politics against non-indians
    No non-indians within decision making ranks

    Advice to Management

    Need to consider "equal opportunities" in the true sense of what it stands for as this is totally nonexistent in your organisation which although is meant to be global but has less than 10% non-Indians working for you. In addition, you need to consider hiring more locals outside of India instead of importing offshore employees who do not have the required cultural affinity. In particular, you need to consider local hires for head of HR!
