OP: go to their office. You will see serious diversity issues. I bet 99% are Indians (a lot of them on H1b) and 75% or more male. Culturally a pitiful place from what I know

I worked with them a lot at a past client. They owned a lot of huge dev and test teams. Pretty good opportunities if you’re from India and want to work in the US but that’s the only situation that makes sense. Quality of work was treacherous

Yikes, how bad is your situation at D, that you’ve even considering this move.

They are a much Lower quality tech company. I’ve worked with them on many engagements. They are an outsourcing company for run teams, and testing and validation.

No one should ever leave B4 for TCS/CG/Infosys. Places are sweatshops with leadership that is notoriously cheap. Whatever number they’re offering you, I guarantee that the Total Rewards package will pale in comparison to where you’re at now. In summary, stay far far away

Partner1 and Acc2 have said all you need to know ... and if you’re still tempted, really dig into the benefits they offer. It will be way below anything B4 offer.

D4 - hmmmm - maybe but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t apply to their consulting services

OP.. it’s not as terrible as others here make it sound. I know a few folk who went there from Deloitte and stuck around for a long time. And they weren’t Indian. Work may not be as exciting, so if you are going it’s for the money or the title.

Why why why? Seriously it is so many steps down in terms of prestige, type of work, benefits, talent.

TCS is a body shopper - a tier 5 company (if that exists). Run away as fast as you can my friend. You will regret it otherwise .

I watched one of their orals presentation - it was awful
