One of the largest and fastest growing IT company in the world

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Mumbai

I have been working at Tata Consultancy Services full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMost employee friendly, HR takes care of your preferences...nice salary package, less work...onsite depends on luck

ConsMore than 2 lakh people, so it is very difficult to grow...it all depends on your luck and very little on your hard work and again chance of getting good project and onsite, all depends on luck.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep growing the way you are.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
