    Pros

    The culture is Indian which nice and the company has good ethics at its core. Colleagues are friendly usually hard working.

    Too much gets outsourced back to India where there are frequent changes of staff and the qualityof work is variable, some staff are knowledgable but many are inexperienced. Decision making, especially signing things off, is slow and painful.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Tata Communications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I left shortly after joining

    Cons

    They describe as international company but India is where everything happens. Hierarchy is toxic in India so clash with Intl staff values. Awful bullies get away with it horrendously. No promotion for folks not in India due to $ so managers in the UK have same responsibility than India VP without the professional value. Everything will be in India eventually too many folks reporting harassment that is condoned by seniors. Avoid at all costs.
