A good IT consulting company
IT Analyst (Current Employee) –  Parsippany, NJOctober 22, 2017
TCS is a good IT consulting company with a good work life balance. But the work life balance depends upon client to client and manager to manager. Almost everyone has seen both in TCS if the manager or client is changed.
Salary is fair, not too bad, but lower compared to others.
Pros
Work/home life balance
Cons
Salary, slow progress, promotions

Cons
Compensation and appraisals

Not bad
IT Analyst (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 20, 2017
The company culture needs to be more open and innovative if they want to grow from here. Variable pay in India is a big component even for lower grade employees which is not good.

Good place to work if you can navigate the virtual office
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bedford, TexasOctober 20, 2017
Great place friendly people. It is mostly virtual so most of the time you are not at a TATA facility. Some may find it hard to navigate the Tata Portal.

Stressful environment and culture
OCM/Communications Consultant (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIOctober 15, 2017
Management at TCS was poor, unfair and ineffective. There is a culture of "bait and switch" -the job description or reason for hiring is completely different than the work.

To satisfy client

Most of the work we do is to satisfy the client for his day to day work. Need to stick on the immediate top management policies neither good for organization or individual

Underpaid employees, too much bureaucracy
Associate (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaOctober 14, 2017
Engineers who should be rewarded most are actually at worst conditions..underpaid , not even satisfactory healthcare and on top of that, embarrassed by support functions over petty issues/claims/reimbursements , as these support teams think they are the ones writing code/solving big data challenges/ attending late night support calls to bring revenue and profit to share holders.
Pros
If you are willing to relocate, you have a chance of working for multiple industries, technologies
Cons
Refer to detailed review above

Mixed Feelings...
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, CAOctober 13, 2017
Unless the project your working on is local, I would suggest not to relocate to another state for this company. They take an extremely long time to reimburse your expenses for relocation. It has been over 5 months since I relocated from the East Coast to California and the company still has not reimburse my expenses although I have disclosed all of my receipts.

There is no room for advancement. The company culture is bad (no communication, no direction, no sense of community). Example, when you start there isn't a mentor or a manager to assist you with the on boarding process, you are just another number. The company is so cheap they do not issue there employee's laptops, you log into there website.
Pros
Access to learn New technology, Job Security
Cons
On-boarding, Culture, Merit Raises, Reimbursement for Relocation, Advancement

Very poor work culture
Cloud SME and Program Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, Texas, and California StatesOctober 12, 2017
Would really not like to comment as my experience as a US Citizen just cannot be narrated. I have worked with many US companies and the experience has been truly rewarding but absolutely the reverse in case of companies from India. One word to sum it all probably - Pathetic.

Long projects but bad benefits and salary
Hadoop Lead Developer/Analyst (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 10, 2017
You get many opportunities to grow. Also most of the projects are very long. But you will be seriously underpaid compared to market. If you are an H1B, GC initiation is a dream that will never come through.

My review
Database Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dearborn, MIOctober 6, 2017
This is my personal review. I had some bad times in TCS. Some manager feels that associate is their personal property. Poor Resource Management Group .They make use of them. They try to put associate based on their need rather than associate's wish. Compensation structure is not same for similar roles or positions. Still work life balance is good and there is job security compare to other companies.
Pros
Less work pressure, Job security
Cons
Poor Resource Management Group

Too decentralized.
Lead Consultant, Architect Virtualization (Current Employee) –  NYOctober 6, 2017
Since TCS and other outsourcers compete on price, it is very difficult to get proper compensation. Some team are tribal without corporate supervision.
Pros
Good benefits.
Cons
May have to relocate often time. Poor compensation, friction between US Citizen and H1B due to compensation
