Hi Vijay,

i too got selected by TCS during college campus placements and joined it. i left TCS after 9 months because it was not worth working for. there is a lot of junk-clerical type of work in TCS which will never let you even touch the real software field. it is too much of a luck to be put at good technology as a fresher in TCS. i do not know about the type of work at Amdocs. But i say no for TCS.

best of luck

thanks for replying
then if you left TCS did u pay them back 50k
as their service bond break. and hey nine months dont u think
is too less a time to judge a company. anyway did u pass out
engineering and which college are u from. Kriti why dont u try applying
to Amdocs. Since u like C,C++, Java their bulk of work is through
C,C++ system level coding and all exciting stuff

and hey Amdocs is hiring freshers. to Cyprus through this consultancy,
called SearchHouse. Their website is www.thesearchhouse.com
alternatively you can send emails to ashwini@thesearchhouse.com
and attach your resume

Vijay,out of the nine months, 3 months were training, i worked only for 6 months and i was sure that my grave was a better place than TCS! i have just got appointed at Siemens and will be going to Germany for abt an year this October. i am lucky to get this job coz i will work on C/C++/Java/UML etc. i passed out as Electrical Engg from REC Bhopal batch 2002.

i did not pay the bond money to TCS, the letters keep coming but we do not accept them. everybody does the same.

through. Would you recommend this company for freshers. How is the
environment ?

Arjun,
Confidence was due to the fact that,
I had decent communication skills as far as company interview goes.
Just wanted to be sure of the technical stuff to revise before
i attend the interview so that there are no final moment glitches.
OK? Does that answer ur question?
