    Pros

    WORK-LIFE BALANCE, HIGH JOB SECURITY, One can learn many things provided you are in a right track, It is nice company to start your career with as well as end you career with as well. Growth is comparatively slow but it is sure.
    Onsite opportunities again if you are in right project and lucky. Much depends on which project you are working with.
    Best among services company.

    Cons

    Project selection is very important. Always try to get in the kind of project you want even though others pressure you to get into any king of project . Appraisal process is kind of awful, much depends on your luck and rapport.
    Growth is slow. Compensation is comparatively less but better than other services company.

    Focus on keeping the name of TCS largely in a good way. Just dont keep on tracing your client, do something where client can come back to TCS.
