Massive international presence. Well respected. Can’t speak to internal dynamics, but I would entertain it.

I’ve heard awful things TBH. Culture, disrespect of employees, inadequate comp increases.

I’ve had TCS resources get too comfortable around me and freely start discussing faking resumes and bait and switch phone interviews. That company is super sketch, but clients use them because they’re low cost

Ask about diversity in the practice you are planning to join. From what I hear it’s a body shop, with a culture that is different from that of Big 4, especially our mellow EY.

For the salary bump you might be able to do it for a year and leverage it for another even higher offer?

It wasn’t terrible and the benefits were ok, but the body shop comments are spot on. Internal systems and processes including travel reimbursement (no corporate card, lonnnng lag and many escalations required for anything to be approved) are horrendous. HORRENDOUS. Leadership is hit or miss. So long as you’re good at CYA, you should be ok. Agree with the 2nd rate comment as well — there are some good people there, but vast majority are just collecting a paycheck and do the bare minimum. Simple best practice is missing a lot of the time. Don’t expect to do any transformative and/or strategic projects because customers don’t usually hire TCS for that. It’s hired gun type work. Again, not god awful. Ok place to ride out a great raise/title bump.
