In our country, you will find that the older generation glorifies government jobs and pushes the younger generation to bag one of them. It’s no news that government jobs come with many perks – on-time monthly salary, fixed hours, and job security. Some also think that government jobs are comfortable and employees get to enjoy many breaks in between work.
However, a Twitter user shared a Quora post listing the many perks of working in Tata Consultancy Services, including job security, on-time salary, unlimited breaks and free time.

This sounded a lot like the perks enjoyed by government job employees; hence, the user wrote, “TCS is the new government job.”

This seemed the ideal job opportunity for many Indians who went ahead and asked how they could secure a job at the company! Some TCS employees also vouched for some of the points.
Life’s next goal : Get a job in TCS

Can vouch for all especially point 4 😁

That -> Job security to people who seek it over more $ -> Low wages -> more profitability -> more money to spend -> more profit -> repeat
I still can’t see what’s wrong with this. If someone likes that chill and slow life, what’s wrong with letting them enjoy it?!

Served 2 years in that mediocrity when I started my career. What I never liked was the unfairness, some people on bench for 11 months and no one bothered to fire them. Guys like me in a development project were forced to work 11 hours a day including half the weekends.

So TCS is for jokers who don’t wanna work, but get paid?

I have worked in TCS for good 5 years and I can say it from my experience that whatever you do will be reflected in your year end appraisal. People who work hard get good bands and in-time promotions.

But there were some others who were TCS employees who claimed that the amount of stressful work that they go through is overwhelming.
A friend of my friend has been working in TCS for couple of months.. he is in stress because he is in some project development team and says he hardly knows what is going on there..

Have worked in TCS. Gross generalisation. Yes it’s more laidback compared to others, par all of it depends on your bosses/managers. There is burnout in TCS too.

Fake news alert !!
In my current job capacity, i deal with TCS as a vendor on daily basis.
I know their stress level. It’s nothing like what is mentioned in the post.
Can things improve ?? Sure !
Ex:- TCS bench policy.
I know ppl, who have been doing nothing for 6+ months.
