After working for 3½ years I am in a position to comment on the good and not so good aspects of working in TCS. 1. Working in such a big MNC means one's general work experience can vary from project to project as timings, work ease, technologies and everything else related to one's work will differ. 2. I was lucky to get opportunity in Financial Services IOU (Insurance domain). I have been involved in TCS BANCS which is a company product with out clients being top insurance providers across the world. Got a great team with good leaders who guided me to learn and develop my skills. 3. I am also happy that TCS provided Digital Capability Assessment, which was a combination of exams and interviews to prove one's merit and thus increase one's compensation. Although the assessments had their flaws with system failure during coding assessments too common and very inconsistent interview patterns across the board, it was still an opportunity for junior employees to increase their compensation benefits. 4. The health insurance provided by TCS in association with New India Insurance with Medibuddy acting as 3rd party is one of the best offered in corporate world. 5. Job security is really paramount here. If you do your job and have strived to become an important part of your respective work, you needn't fear about losing job ever. 6. Consistent pay under every circumstances. Even during COVID infected world and uncertain circumstances, we always received our salary on time. TCS had announced that there would be no lay offs whatsoever due to covid. Only variable pay for senior employees had been suspended for 2 quarters. And our yearly appraisals for 2020-21 were delayed from April to September. 7. TCS rolled out its SBWS model of Work From Home, the earliest in April 2020 and have continued it till date (writing in December 2021). There have been no compulsions yet, to return to work from office....Read More

Dislikes

Well there are yet some not so good points too. 1. The starting salary of a on campus freshman is not much. TCS has maintained the starting salary at the same amount for a decade now, in spite of the value of Rupee falling terribly in that period and inflation consistently rising. Meaning 3.3LPA in 2010 is not worth the same nowin 2021. 2. While joining the company, like many other IT giants, the technology you are mapped into and the project you get into are random and may not always depend on your preferred technology or the programming language you are versed in. 3. Although there's initial scope of learning and developing your skills, after few years it stops since you have learnt everything there is to. So you become stagnant with lack of up skilling opportunities from mid level. 4. Your career doesn't grow consistently and appraisal process isn't fool proof. Even though you have performed exemplary and your team and leaders mark you highest, project hierarchy may prevent appraising you well. This also means one doesn't get promoted in right times. It affects your career since you aren't getting your dues. 5. Work satisfaction and balance totally depends on the project and the people working there. 6. Less opportunities to learn new technologies and explore new things and get outside your working technology and domain. 7. If you are consistently doing wings1, wings2 exams you may get extra compensation, but it's almost not possible to do your job work and complete these exams simultaneously. Continuous project work prevents your from devoting any extra time to extra stuffs. 8. Initial training to new joinees is almost non existent except the training centre at Trivandrum....Read More

Personally I have had enriching experience over 3½ years. I got good training during my training at Trivandrum and have learnt everything else on the job. Devloped my skills and became a complete professional.

I liked the facalities provided at campus like cafeteria, coffee machine, courses provided to learn.

Dislikes

Even after being 14 days till I left the organization I am not able to access alumni portal to access my documents hr and my separation officer are not picking up my call my manager is also not picking up the call. They say info added by me in alumni portal is not correct as per there records I access the contact us options to know which info is not correct but they are not replying. I called hr (separation officer) Neesha Sharma that I am unable to access she provided me on email ID but it was incorrect. I called HR Nishant Shahu for help but he is also not picking up the call. I am not sure if I need to go to a lawyers office to have my remaining amount and other documents. Please let me know if there's anyone at tcs who could help me with this issue. Other than that my worst experience at TCS includes first overtime I was working 18 hours a day daily at a 10 hour job. I used to work on saturday and sunday. My colleagues were not working. And if any cases left manager shouts at me. There is a requirement of extra ft's in the project but TCS will ask there associates to work 16 hour a day. Rather than hiring a new FT. I was miserable at the time I decided to quit my job. Because I couldn't take it anymore. If it was a good job where I could learn something new and my package would increase then I would have never left it. But this is a job for lazy workers. Because they know that no one can throw them out. I am not gonna write I am gonna kill myself if I didn't found a job in future. Also the bps industry which has been developed is nothing more than a data entry what they call so proudly that BFSI domain people dont even consider it as a skill. The people who work here are pure robot. Why dont you create robots to do the work you wont get any escalations. Also coworkers gets emotionally attached which is not a right thing. This is a workplace not a school. Because of which many were jealous of me and spoke bad things about me on my face. ...Read More

My personal experience there was only memorable because of the people employed there with me, my teammates. They were the ones that no one could have asked for, the best ones around. More like a family. Supportive, smart, innocent and always available whenever you needed them.

Dislikes

1. Pay is pathetic, even less than that of a daily wage labour. 2. Other allowances like internet allowance ( it was 410 per month), Over time are way too less than the effort that we used to put in. 3. Management like manager and team leads are not at all worthy to be in a corporate environment. There ways around other employees was totally unprofessional,instances like interrupting people and saying in matters where they have absolutely no clue, just to prove that they are the supreme ones. And the worst part about the managers and team leads was their english fluency, it was a torture to our ears when they used to address us in english. 4. Hell of a work life balance, they say it is optional to work on weekends but by the end of Friday night, they will just get on top of your head, trying to convince you to work on weekends. 5. Timings: one week it was 12pm to 10 pm and the next week it would be 3 pm to 1 am. You sleep cycle, attentiveness and everything that is anyhow related to your brain will get hampered, and I can guarantee you that. 6. Visible favouritism. If you belong to the area where your manager is from, you will definitely be protected and unnecessarily praised for the tiniest things. Moral: A good ' QUALIFIED' manager is needed to fetch the best out of all the employees. Note: All the above points are written by an employee who had zero beef with anyone and who was one of the most beloved employee in his project. But things had to be said as it was hampering the best of that project....Read More

Secure job, no need to worry about performances. You have good health insurance policy ( only paid policies are good). you have good leaves structure but clients/domain doesn't allow you to take it.

Dislikes

No good pay, No hike, in the name of roles they don't give you promotions... This is a role based organization which means you have to work more for the lesser salary 😀 Never fall to the trap which says they will pay extra OT (300 to 600 Max for senior and team leads ). Culture - no organisational structure, No respect from the management, dont care about your problems. Yes, they say "We pay you to work " 😀 lol These are the few instances that I have noticed. If you do what ever they ask strech for 12 to 14 hrs to complete der work they will be happy and speaks to you in good way but still don't expect promotion. All the leads and team members are dummy they act like salves they don't say anything. Totally a bad place to work 8f your looking for growth and hike. Don't ever think about company sponsored team outing, oops forget about team outing not even a tea or coffee 😀 ...Read More

Job security was good , I ended up on a banking project with no experience in Java, everything is mainly based on the project we’re we are getting tagged.Learning was good. The management gave access to work and use different tools and software’s. I was reporting at TCS Siruseri, the campus is like a dreamland. So many cafeterias most of them are good. Siruseri campus has a huge library in which I have never spent time. It has a modern gym , indoor and outdoor games. There will be a team outing yearly and end and it’s too based on the project....Read More

Dislikes

The main thing that disappointed me is the salary and appraisals. As we were 3 members in the team and 2 of them were specialised in different tech, I was overloaded with the development work. I have worked overtime for nearly a year post lockdown and the management knows it well, I kept asking for one more associate to the team but they haven’t done any of the request which I asked them. Appraisal, We had no TL so we were in direct contact with the client. They know how much time I spent to keep things right and I was available on weekends to complete the project on time. During the time of appraisal I was very sure that I will be getting 4.5/5 rating but things didn’t went as I expected. I was given 4 I was disappointed in that, I went to the reporting manger and I asked the reason for it, he pointed another associate whom I had no contact with and asked me to check with him. When I approached him he said like I haven’t complete the mandatory courses so he reduced rating. First of all that guy don’t even know the work I have been doing in this team and all those over time . How come he can decided the rating. I was frustrated but I haven’t shown it. That moment I decided to quit TCS. I was thinking to get release from the project but i know it will never happen. So I prepared for a week and attended an interview got rejected in the first round. I prepared for an other week and got selected in a Service based Company. During 90 days of notice period 3 associates were recruited into the team, that was the request I made before. I have worked in 5 different tech tools I was preparing a document for each and every process. I was asked to train the new joinees. I trained them well in the first two weeks and shared all the docs which I had and enjoyed the rest of notice period....Read More

I liked TCS Health insurance schemes.. Apart from this there are many company policies but you will end up searching which policy is the latest one. I heard about Job security but I see this is the private company, when your performance is not upto the mark obviously private company can sack you anytime.

Dislikes

I disliked the Global healp desk.. No one is good. Whenever you raise a ultimatix Or IT ticket request there is no other way you can approach to the team. Very bad services. It's like government company. If you need any support from any team you need to remind several time. No turn around time. escalation also does not help. SeniorManagers does not interact frequently with ground level associates and that is making resignation from TCS. Also, your designation is masked and you can't see anyones designation. IT policies are very bad.. You can't send you salary slip on personal mobile through outlook. You need to have vpn connected... Very bad. ...Read More

Honestly Speaking, It is actually a good company, if you wish to join as an experienced Candidate, you would love the culture here, work life balance and everything else. The new Joinees and Experienced candidate are leveraged the best. The ones who've stayed long would be rugged like anything. Things you would like: #Best :- You might get ON-SITE opportunity really soon. 1. Learning resources 2. Medical and Health benefits 3. Flexible Leaves 4. HR/ Resource Managers are good 5. Sport, Music and Other cultural groups ...Read More

The company has been doing great in market, yet they've never been really thoughtful about employees. I had been working for one of the most reputed Client, and we've been doing really great, do not actually get the point how I always end with bad appraisals. over 2 years i got 6% and then 7% hike, I surely deserved better. Employee perks #Worst :- I never got a technical training and that's probably the worst thing that happened, because i ended landing in a process and struggled a lot to learn and grow 1. Gems Propaganda. you can use these to get Amazon/Flipkart coupons, but trust me, not at all valuable. I guess these've got hit by inflation too 2. Bad appraisals. 3. Managers are Pathetic 4. if you do good you'd be made team lead of a process you may or may not like at all...Read More

Working with TCS means working with below industry average remuneration, if refered to Glassdoor salaries. However, if one is lucky enough to squeeze into some really good projects, something that make one passionate about, there is no dearth of opportunities and growth. Most people keep buzzing around getting an international work location, however, once again, if one is really passionate about innovation and creative work, the company culture is really good at it. Process is something which make things work smooth but slow, and TCS is a big big process driven organization. HR is very strong and this promotes new age culture to expand its influence in workstyle, preventing yesteryear mindset employees to force norms on the newbies (Waterfall vs Agile for instance). Overall, the only reason one should stick to TCS, is the excellent worklife balance, opportunities, good culture and TATA support (which includes extensive medical and ancillary benefits)...Read More
