    Pros

    Free transport and good campus.

    Cons

    So many
    1. TESCO HSC is known for frequent lay offs thus no job security , not a company who takes care of it's employees.
    2. Not a software company. Those working here as software professionals are 5 years behind other companies in skill sets.
    3.Majority of managers know nothing about the ABC of software development. They know browsing and one thing that is asking what is the status. Imagine managers being paid just for asking what is the status every morning.Common guys they need to know about
    software development. If managers are like this what about others. Most are zero in technical.
    4. Managers here like to be pampered by calling them Sir/madam just like Govt. company. Common guys time has changed.
    5. Avoid joining this company at any cost if you do not want to spoil your career , go join and become obsolete and also ask your colleagues before joining.
    6, They de compile java software created by other companies by a decompiler and use in production. Seriously, this is called stooping too low and it is known as pirate. Stop piration .
    7. Once more think 10 times joining this company as layoffs can happen anytime.
    8. This company deserves negative rating.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid manipulating accounts just to show how this company is doing well. In newspapers the Tesco fiasco , caught by agencies for manipulating accounts prove costly to employees.

    I worked at Tesco full-time

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Cons

    1. Almost all the projects are maintenance type projects.
    2. No ethics and no professionalism. Once you leave you will be treated like savages even for getting details of EPF. You will try to contact them they won't respond.
    3. Hell guaranteed as the title says.
    4. The worst company I could think of.
    5. The ratings are highly manipulated by putting wrong good ratings.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, it's a company not worth giving advices.

    Great campus, almost looks like a resort
    Nice work life balance....more life less work

    No innovation, not any experienced people working as analyst. Those working don't have vision.
    Highest possible attrition rate, not a place for ambitious people

    Stop marketing yourself, to other teams and managers!!

    Pros

    Awesome Place to work, the campus is the most desirable place to hangout and it is a stress free place, people are too friendly and you will be treated as others are treated, in other words all are treated equally. no stress in work, no targets, equity in Management. Over Tesco is a Haven for everything one is looking forward . my conclusion is you wont feel you are in office, but you feel Home.

    Cons

    Its is a good place to work, I don't have any cons to update.

    Advice to Management

    Improvement on cafeteria food Taste, Providing Cabs On time especially during Drops.
