Typical Indian outsourcing company
Sr Consultant (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHAugust 6, 2015
Pros: Overseas opportunities
Cons: Too much politics
Bad culture, no value of personal life..Employees are treated like bodies..Trust me people use that term..I need four bodies on this project! Managers feel like they are God..Too much politics..
And they groom people to become like that! Its a sad place...You will like if you have the old Indian attitude and crazy about the job titles,and how many people report to you..If you value your personal space, really love creating beautiful software and also want to make good money while doing it....Then its probably not for you!

IT Help Desk Technician and Trainer (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Great People
Cons: too much red tape
There is a lot of people there that are great and people generally care but unforuntately there is alot of red tape.

Management is great but quick to blame people and also allow that to cost you your job. If you volenteer and they hire someone to replace you while on external project you might not have a place to go back to so be careful there.

Excellent health benefit and above standard compensation
Helpdesk Engineer for Maersk (Current Employee), Manila, ARJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Health benefit and compensation
Cons: Limited headcount
Typical day at work is communicating with global users resolving issues which are common applications like outlook, Citrix and dealing with Active Directory. I've learned a lot regarding Global Service Desk processes and support, prioritizing issues that affects an entire region or multiple users and communicating with different support engineers with different support platforms. I report to different supervisors, depending on what schedule I would be given which cannot be beneficial in the long run for the growth of the associate. I get along with most of my co-workers, specially those who have the same goal as I and attitude towards assisting users, proving excellent support. The hardest part of the job is when I tend to treat everday as the 1st day of the week. Being ultra serious with request and incidents raised by users on a daily basis. The most enjoable part of the job is when management notices the hard work you have done.

Mainframe application developer/Systems Analyst (Current Employee), Parisppany, NJJuly 19, 2015
TCS is a Overall balanced company for freshers and it was awesome to work for it too, however not paying that well.

I was searching for a good growth but it seems due to the population it is stagnant.

okay overall
Java Developer, Alpharetta, GA (Current Employee), Alpharetta, GAJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Peaceful life, fine work culture
Cons: no bonus
TCS is good company if you are not willing to learn new technologies or if you do not care what your actual role is against the offered one. They can make you do work which might not be part of your job profile. No bonuses and salary increment is also very less.

Not much work so if you are that kind of person who do not want to be part of something new/creative/innovative then TCS is the company for you.
