    Pros

    Big clients you work for, good people. strong company.

    Cons

    very difficult to shift within the company. benefits were average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should take a long term approach to handle issues, like for example they reduced the salaries of the people when the market crashed in 2008-9 to benefit shareholders... given the profits they had earned in the past 10 years, it should have been a cake walk to cross that slump. anyway thats past but they should not repeat teh mistakes.

    I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services

    Pros

    1. Exposure to wide variety of customers across globe
    2. Very good if you want to be manager
    3. Professional teams in most places

    Cons

    1. -Ve increments are possible if your performance band decreases for any reasons.
    2. Most policies are aimed at cost reduction.
    3. Big company,hence, its sometimes difficult to get noticed outside a team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary reduction as part of appraisal process is not a good approach even if there is no increment. No salary correction to existing companies wrt lateral hires, which is demotivating.
