Hi,
i hope u don't mind answering a few silly questions from me (a fresher having just completed my ME in comouter science):
regarding Infy and TCS,
(1) how is the training for Computer Science graduates??
(2) are the companies very strict in the matter of taking leave or the two companies a bit liberal in this matter both during and after the training period?
(3) in these companies, do they give any sort of annual vacation??
(4) regarding the place of posting, are we given any choice or we need to go wherever we are posted??
thanks in advance

(1) how is the training for Computer Science graduates??
>> they'll give inhouse training of the products/projects/technologies that you should be aware of to work on them

(2) are the companies very strict in the matter of taking leave or the two companies a bit liberal in this matter both during and after the training period?
>> No. They'll be liberal.

(3) in these companies, do they give any sort of annual vacation??
>> OfCourse.

(4) regarding the place of posting, are we given any choice or we need to go wherever we are posted??
>> TCS has no choice I guess when you first joined and atleast you have to serve the company for 1-2 years before you are given that choice. Infosys gives you choice I guess.


Regards,
Buntumilli.

Hi ravi,
thank u very much for the prompt reply. one of my classmates has got an offer from Infy. he too had similar questions i had and when i showed him this post, he was pleased. but he has forced me to post the following questions:
(1) in his offer letter from Infy, it has been mentioned that he will get a leave of only 3 days per quarter for the first year and not more. do they strictly follow this??
(2) he also wants to know specifically how many days Infy gives as annual vacation and generally in which month is the annual vacation given??
sorry for the trouble and thanks in advance

vacation limits are strict, else where would it end?
Of course in emergencies most good managers will make exceptions (think death in the family, birth of your own child, but not wanting to leave on vacation a day early).

btw, that goes for all companies large and small.
In my experience small companies are usually easier to arrange such things because the bureaucracy is far less and you likely know all the people you're dealing with at least by face while with a large company they may well work in a different building in another city where you've never been and never will be.

Is there a difference between leave & vacation in the current Indian business environment? If not, 3 days per quarter comes to 2 weeks of vacation in the 1st year for a newbie. That is quite the norm in US (there are always exceptions). Isn't this in addition to holidays? What about sick days?

Annual vacation in a particular month? That sounds like school/college. A company cannot afford to close for a month during which time all their employees go on a vacation. Normally, employees have to schedule their vacations somewhat ahead of time.

I don't agree with u, small companies don't give it easily as they don't have many employees so find it difficult to get replacements easily.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
