A stable workplace with great learning opportunities
IBM ODM Platform specialist (Current Employee) –  Strongsville, OHJanuary 6, 2017
A completely stable work environment.
Lot of resources and opportunities available to learn new technologies. The current account I work with gives me a good work life balance. Management could have been a bit better. Though there are good and open communication channels to reach out to the upper management.
Pros
Work life balance, job security, learning opportunities
Cons
Less compensation package, less movement across projects

Big company
Sr. Solution Architect (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 14, 2016
TCS is big company and your work and growth is limited to project you are working. Majority of work in TCS is support and maintenance and there is comparative less technical activities than core software development. So, in order to advance further in career, move to management role rather than being in technical profiles. Also, TCS management favors more if you are in management role rather than being in technical roles.
Cons
salary

Fast progressing, healthy work culture & learning inspirations
Documentum Technical Lead (Current Employee) –  Naperville, ILSeptember 22, 2016
A typical day at work would start with client calls in the morning and end with status reports in the evening. Have learned a lot professionally how to deal with different clients - understanding their requirements, providing solutions/consulting, keeping up with fast pace of market growth on ECM related products, implementing them in Proof of concept to show their benefit for future customer.

Hardest part of job was not much holidays, working on weekends and no extra compensation.

Good Place to Work
Technical Lead/Developer (Current Employee) –  Calcutta, INSeptember 4, 2016
TCS is a good place to work.
Associates can balance their personal life and the work life.
Work culture, Environment are all good.
Associated get moderate compensations as well.
Management is not that good specially at Calcutta.
Most of the people leaving this organization is because of their management...this is my point of view.
But as a whole, its a excellent place to work.

So so
Tata FTE/UX Developer (Current Employee) –  Redmond, WADecember 8, 2016
The people are friendly, you get yearly bonuses, the benefits are great. There is room for advancement, but it seems far and few between. They are trying to have more interactive gatherings, but so far since I've been here ( a year and a half ) there has only been one.
Pros
Great benefits, 401k, and nice people
Cons
You feel soft-spoken

Local Hire TCS
Quality Assurance Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 7, 2016
Work life Balance and compensation are well above average. Almost no social aspect to the job. Isolated from Expats. Management style is very different from location to location and there isn't enough support staff.

Too much politics and pathetic salary
Technical Lead (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYOctober 29, 2016
The mid level management is messed up. Too much politics, pathetic salary and insane working hours if you work. I won't recommended anyone to work for TCS India. TCS America on the other hand is good but ONLY w.r.t to salary.

If you want to be kidnapped, threatened with physical assault, this place is for you
Technical Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Redmond, WAJune 7, 2016
I've been with this company 2 times on different contracts. They don't follow their own rules and regulations, let alone clients that they work for and that calls for a lot of cover ups and bologna. I was threatened by physical assault by my immediate supervisor, locked in the room after work hours until "his assignment completed", threatened (i didn't end up getting it) not to get a pay raise if won't be kissing you know what.
Pros
You get a job
Cons
Too many to list, Just don't go to work for them, Find yourself another job to spare yourself a bunch of troubles
