    Good learning experience

    Assistant Systems Engineer (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsIn TCS, you will get to learn a lot and get different experiences in different roles within the company. This can help you to decide what career path you would like to take in the future.

    ConsThe lack of structure for TCS UK, the pay is not very great and sometimes in projects there is no challenge and sometimes you will sit there and do nothing (which could be a good thing or bad).

    Advice to Senior ManagementStructure TCS in UK.
