Best Health insurance in market Work life balance although depends on projects but you can choose to do 8 hrs work if you want. Free udemy access and quarterly certification can be reambursed. Onsite opportunities are good if you need.

Dislikes

Poor salary, they'll give hikes to people who join from other companies but not to the people who have been working hard for years. Actual Talents leave after few years and those who stay most of them are average on tech. Growth will slow down significantly after 2 yrs. You'll learn politics and how not to work from other senior people Once you resign they will not care about you. You are just a resource for them like other 6L people.

There is an opportunity for freshers to clear the elevate incentive assessments to increase their designation and salary, but the rules keep changing and is mostly based on luck. If you are lucky enough to get into a good project/client with good tech stack, that would be a good opportunity in terms learning and upskilling.

Dislikes

The policies keep changing as and when they want to change it. 3 months notice. The elevate incentives is based on performance reviews and that might involve some office politics( not everywhere). I have worked in 2 teams and one had amazing culture and work lift balance, but the other was mainly headache.

Job security and health benefits and ideal for lazy persons only who much much less passionate about their self improvement.

Dislikes

... 800 as a daily wage and in tcs even after working for 4 years in hand salary is somewhere around ~30-32k per month am really ashamed of my company now. The CEOs are coming and going and making hikes in crores for themselves , the amount is huge an individual can barely imagine the hikes they are paying to themselves. In a company of ~5lakhs employee there is a huge difference in salary someone is making crores in a month and someone is struggling to make even ~25 k 😂 Let me come to the health security omg it’s nothing just a eye washing thing I believe the premiums are too high if you add your parents in health scheme you will go back to the freshers salary. So it’s a joke and nothing else I believe security is there something which has a strong points. But I have seen that the maximum old employees are useless even they are less interested to know about the upcoming new technologies. I will request them to atleast maintain some work ethics and try to do the management a bit better .

Perfect work-life balance. Salary is good enough, if you are in Digital Cadre/Innovator Cadre.

Dislikes

Salary is very poor if you are Ninja Cadre. Promotion and Appraisal doesn't depend on work much, and as you might've heard it doesn't get better even if you are in good terms with your manager....it's actually depends on your luck and your departments growth/performance for the year (which again might be poor if you unlucky🥲)
