Pathetic Company - Stay away

They leech unsuspecting job seekers. No filter needed to get a job, they have templates and expect you to follow them.They will pay you less than half of what they charge the client. The client expects quality of work according to what they pay TCS, while you would be able to deliver based on what You are paid. An obvious discrepancy.Also, HR is non-existent, and horrible policies. YES - you will have to work extra and not be paid, in Canada!And don't forget the manager will try to bring one of his/her friends from India and replace you - let's see how you navigate the politics.Join TCS, destroy your mental health and career.

Pros

anyone can get a job

Cons

low salary, no support, worst HR, useless management, low quality

It is a stressful place to work

Stressful place to work and severely underpaid. You may get paid fairly only when you resign and the project sees value in you. And once The high pay at the cost of poor work life balance

Mixed back experience working @ TCS

TCS is a VERY large corporation. This causes a varied experience across the entire company.Salary and benefits for "freshers" appear to be good, better than other staffing companies in the same space so under the right circumstances this could be a good start for a new graduate.One universally negative thing about TCS is management. Middle management is very poor and do not manage employees effectively in order to provide the best work possible.Essentially, almost every manager appears to simply be interested in offloading their tasks on to employees. For example, on paper, one person could be listed as an "Application Developer" BUT they actually work on onboarding and offboarding new or leaving employees. All because management does not wish to do so themselves.Almost everything from Giving tasks, assigning resources, having meetings and explaining concepts to new employees etc. That you would expect a manager to do. Is done by regular employees. Every contract has a handful if VERY GOOD employees who devastate a project when they leave for better companies. Brain drain.ILP Training is also very poor. It is a waste of resources for what you learn and the management responsible for that program are essentially making free money. Kudos to them.This company is primarily interested in the relationship between themselves and the companies that offer them contracts. This is the only valued thing. Every now and again some high level members of management may inquire as to the thoughts and feelings of employees but many employees, either fearful of "rocking the boat" are - 

Pros

Good coworkers.

Cons

Poor management.

A Wonderful Company for Experienced

Joined the company as fresher, overall the learning has been good. They provide access to Udemy and linkedin learning. Their ILP program is good too. But as fresher would not recommend to join the company.Job Security wise this is the best organization so for experienced employees, it is very good to join at a later stage.

My HR constantly ghost me

I think there are just too many people in the company for the HR team to manage people properly. The learning experience was actually nice. They keep bragging about how good the company is, or how lovely the working culture they have in various meetings. But the fact is that most of people you met in this company just don't care about you.

Stressful job with ample of opportunities

Stressful job with ample of opportunity, but no salary increment to loyal employees. No benefit if someone works extra, hardworking employees ate compelled to work more and beyond their working hour.

A company that truly doesnt fire you

TCS is one of those rare companies where you'll never get fired if you work well. There are lots of projects and you will be placed well if you are good with your client interviews.Biggest downside is pay hikes. You should always negotiate well when you join .

Pros

Lots of opportunity to learn . Loads of free trainings available

Cons

Not a pay master.

Don't work here unless you just want to sit and wait your career. I am speaking to new grads, find work where you learn skills. There is nothing to be learned here.

Pros

Average Pay

Cons

No learning for new grads. Lots of waiting to be assigned project.

good company for job security

good when we think about job security but not much recognition for individual. There wont be much interactions with higher management but available when needed.

Non productive and toxic work culture

No career growth. You are just a billable body. There is no career path. This is another body shopping giant. No real management and no transparency. It’s good if you want a secure job without any progression. Work life balance depends on the project

Pros

Job security

Cons

Everything
