TCS culture is classic MNC culture. You have to wear formals to office every day except Friday where you can wear casuals. For getting small accesses like headphones for skype call you have to fill 4-5 different long forms and takes about 2-3 days. Culture-wise TCS is a little boring company, to be honest.


TCS has the largest on Site opportunities in USA, South America, England and almost everywhere throughout the globe. TCS has more global projects than local ones so there are higher chances for you to go to the client location abroad.
