I don't understand why people in TCS are so scared of their managers. Just for sake of ratings and pay band people have made this organisation morally corrupt. I have been working since 2 years in TCS took transfer within 1 month of joining. Switched 3 project in 2 years worked on my conditions 9 hours means 9 hours don't give a damn whether people will like it or not. And I can proudly say that because of this reason I got targetted many times but my Personal & Professional Life is balanced.
