Anyone ??

Assistant consultant (AST) is generally 7-10 years exp. Associate consultant (ASOC) is 10+

Both would lead team or be a specialist, depending on the project that you are placed.

My experience is 9 year 10 months, and I am about to get offer letter. Will they allow me to be associate consultant or it’s a strict deadline 10 yrs

It ain't a strict deadline. Try negotiating.

Thanks 😊

What is the experience required for Consultant role?

Ideally 13-14 years, but generally it goes beyond it.

Hello guys plz help me here

After 9 months in tcs I'm assinged in a project just for small developments and testing but yesterday I'd a message from other manager that you're looking for a project "this is the project where I've my expertise"

How to get this project and release from previous???


Tata Consultancy My joining date is getting postponed due to BGC verification is in progress, I Have already relieved from my previous company now this is happening, recruiter says they need some more time, Is it common thing in TCS?


Currently in TCS basic is low around 20-25% of your salary.

As per the proposed new wage rules, basic should be 50% of package. So this will eventually increase Gratuity of long timer TCS.

In a case, if my Gratuity stands at 1 Lakh say, with new wage rules it will be 2.5 Lakhs.. Is my understanding correct? Will the company pay from their pocket for this?


I've put down my papers in TCS few days ago, and I received a mail from RMG to fill some online-form survey.
Can anyone shed a light on what would be asked on that survey?


Hi Sharks

I have uploaded my Documents in ibegin portal and it is showing verified as well but after 11 March I haven't received any update.

In ibegin it's showing evaluation in progress.

Any Idea if tcs is going to offer me or going to reject me. Even no initial discussion has been done in Salary, Location..
