No work life balance at onsite
Senior Developer (Current Employee) –  New JerseyMay 8, 2017
They make you work 10 hours a day and on weekends too. No work life balance and no overtime payments.

Stressful day and cut throat competitive work culture. Don't expect good behavior from your lead or manager.

TCS is best place for learning and grow professionally. The work environment is good. The company work policies and work ethics are good. The learning portals have very good content.

I have worked with this company for 7 years and I am satisfied with the work culture, appraisal process. The best part of this company is the medical benefits given.

A bad organization for work
Sr. Architect (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 4, 2017
This is the worst company I have ever seen. There is no personal life except only client's project. They will wake you up in the middle of night if there is any issue with clients. Regardless how much time you are spending, there is no appreciations. Management only works for their job security.
Pros
No good benefits and no personal life
Cons
Nothing experienced good there

ALthough the company offers job security , the management and job culture need a lot improvement
Team Lead & Automation Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  ArizonaMay 2, 2017
A typical day at work involves close to 12 hours of work with very little to learn from.Workplace culture is no where compared to how an IT organisation must be run.The hardest part of the job is not being appreciated for all the work you do.

There are pros and cons
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Milford, OHMay 2, 2017
TCS, in my experience, is hiring developers primarily -and if you aren't a developer, they will happily try to turn you into one.

How good or bad the job is will depend entirely upon your management and the client you end up working for. Regardless, there's a certain peace that comes from earning a paycheck whether you are on a contract or not.

Pay: In some cities, the pay is perfectly competitive. In others, it is appallingly awful. They clearly hope that living in San Francisco or NYC is enough of a draw that people won't care that they will have to live with roommates in order to survive. For this guy with a family, that doesn't work.

There are some pros to working for TCS, but, you need to go in with your eyes open and be prepared to negotiate and/or say "no." If that isn't your personality, you very well could get taken advantage of.

IT Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYMay 1, 2017
Best place to work from scratch. Give you opportunity to learn new things. Depend on your supervisor how effective you can work and opportunity to learn new things.

Will need contacts to move ahead
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 1, 2017
This is an Indian company and most advancements are done through nepotism. If you don't know someone at the top in the company, don't join. The salary is on the very low end as well.

Steady Job but no Room for Advancement
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 25, 2017
Many of the positions will start to wear on you after a while. It is a good place to start off a career and look to transition after a few years. Do not expect any opportunity to advance in position and expect only small increases in pay.

IT Analyst (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 25, 2017
TCS is a reputable organization to work with. I have gained a good client exposure working with them. TCS has a very good work culture and a socially inclined group of companies.

Okay starting position, not much room for growth.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHApril 25, 2017
There are two really great things about working for Tata Consultancy Services. The first is job security, and the second is on the job training. I was trained on various different technologies when i started with this company (Note: you don't get a say in what you are trained on) but training is training. I was also given downtime to learn new technologies when a project required it.

The not so great part is really the inflexibility of the company. You are promised the world when you go to interview but quickly learn after starting the company that pretty much everything you heard was a lie. There really is no room for advancement within the company, and the pay is far from competitive.

Overall I would say that its an alright place to start, you get to touch a lot of different technologies and you're given time to learn.

Network and Security Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 19, 2017
Big Organisation like TCS needs some time to get stability and liked technologies.Few struggles in starting but mine is not the case I have started by Carrier with TCS and gave me good space for personnel and professional apart from some imbalances which everyone has.

Now, I have spend sufficient time in one organisation to learn more and experience the adverse work culture, eager to have new opportunities.

Mainframe Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 18, 2017
It is ok. All bosses are good here. But sometimes feel as if taken for granted. The reason for moving out of this company. All the policies are very good.

Enterprise Monitoring Solutions Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dublin, OHApril 18, 2017
Stability is the only good thing about TCS. Less Compensation. Less employee benefit. Work life balance is good.Should be flexible to relocate frequently.
