    Most dis-organised, dis-jointed, business ever - a good place to hide

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary
    Easy to hide away and contribute little (if that's your thing)

    Cons

    to be clear - if you are not of Indian extraction, you will not succeed here - just look at the management team.
    Very dis-jointed business - lack of leadership from the UK Senior management team with no communication of company goals or targets. Are completely unable to make a decision without dragging many resources in and taking weeks as no one wants to be seen to be the person that says Yes or No - all this does is undermine any sales strategy and put the whole process behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision, quickly, decisively and communicate it to all
    share the business goals
    stop hiding behind the global financial highlights - the UK market doesn't have a clear picture of who TCS are and what they stand for in the market place.

    Pros

    Great experience in working in a large organisations

    Cons

    No one apart from very senior management can make a decision which means anything takes a long time to get signed off. The whole place is paralysed as no one is allowed to make a decision. Client teams are not proactive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less process and a more agile company

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    met some great people, big enough company to give exposure to various projects, methodologies, roles, geographies etc

    Cons

    work life balance is zilch ,
    80-20 rule applies, 80% do nothing and 20% do all the work.
    too much profit oriented
    quality is no longer given value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promotion policy must be revisited , it is only related to the number of people reporting to you and not your contribution turning people into second grade people managers instead of consultants
    hiring cheap labour and turning out experienced staff will have an impact
