You will see job security mentioned in all the posts, TCS has a good brand name and you can flaunt it and it is a matter of pride. The learning opportunities are immense as the learning and development has plethora of articles, exams and training material to enhance your skills. The compensation is the best among the MNC;s but depends on your managers perspective. Sycophancy is omnipresent, needless to say, having said that I will still mention salary part the positives The medical and the digital claim system makes the life easy, the facilities like gym and cafeteria varies from location to location, if you are lucky enough to be deputed at a good place you will get good amenities, place like Malad is an old asylum. The infrastructure is poor. Cons of getting stuck in an internal project.
TCS is like an ocean, some find pearls and diamonds, some find stones and shells, I am the unfortunate one to get the latter one. It is like a curse being in IT. the work pressure is immense, people who proactively work will be burdened until the succumb to pressure, the people who like to enjoy will have the time of their life and loiter around to glory. Getting a release is totally at project managers discretion, I remember the line from the favorite song of eagles, me and my friend used to sing together "you may checkout anytime you want, but you may never leave!". Getting a release from one project is an impossible task, the HR will be ready to let you go out of TCS but will not release from the project, every plea goes unheard. none of the escalations work! the only option is to quit. New joiners are mislead into internal as they lack knowledge and are naive. Experienced people are cheated and thrown into the pit. The internal employees are wise enough to escape the limbo. Just a warning sign whoever is considering joining TCS which otherwise is a heaven for IT geniuses.
Overall journey has been good with ample of opportunities to work on legacy systems and various technology.
