Infosys vs TCS which is better for software job in India

Here is the good comparison between Infosys job and TCS job. First know about the working culture at Infosys-


This is what one person of Infosys said –

Training at infy : it is about four and half months, timings from 9 to 5.30 or 5.45 till 12.30 they take the classes and afternoons we are given assignments on that day’s topic and supposed to finish and submit by next day morning 9. Total training is divided into two parts generic for one and half month (general topics 9 modules) and stream specific training (like java or .net or mainframes or opensystesm etc) for 2 and half months. Environment of teaching is really good. Tests are tough and the evaluation procedure is also very strict. We are supposed to get 65% in every test and there is negative marking too. They conduct test on completion of each module.

Infosys training tests are designed for averageĀ  people only. The key to success is that “Focus only on the Printed material given to you”. All the asked questions will be from the material.

If you are from a Non CS/IT background then you are put into long cycle. If from CS/IT then you’ll be undergoing fast track training. If some one from CS/IT stream fails in the fast track training, then he will be shifted to Long cycle. He enjoys 1.5 + 3 months of training.

Salary- It is true that wipro’s package is much much better than that of infy. people who got placed in wipro got their package as 27k per month including housing allowance, on the other hand infy people offer only 14k change for their freshers. I have been here in Infy for couple of years now and have sen poeple moving to these above mentioned companies. now today if I ask them, more than 75% people regret their decision.


This is what one person of TCS said-

Training at TCS- Training accommodation is awesome. Properly furnished, tv and fridge, they do provide housekeeping. Every 4 days they change bed sheets and pillow covers, everyday they sweep and every 4-5 days he comes and washes the toilet as well. Earlier tcs tests had 50% cutoff and they were openbook tests and now the tests will be closed book and the cutoff is 65%. Girls actually don’t have have a dress code, actually girls can wear anything salwaar kameez, trousers and top, sari, everything is allowed. Training syllabus-1. soft engg 2. data structure 3. os 4. dbms 5. boot programming 6. unix

Salery- package for off campus B.E/B.TECH is 2.36 lacs per annum and MCA/M.TECH is 2.75 lacs per annum for off campus, It’s against hr policy of TCS to discusses or disclose the salary information in public, be careful guys (who cares!)

TCS or Infosys?- From employee point of view , in most of the criteria like Salary,work culture,work pressure etc all the top companies are same.

In case of work pressure,work culture it depends on your luck, ( project you are getting allocated). In every company you will have simple & tough projects ,friendly & strict managers.But if u ask people, some will tell this company is bad in work culture, work load etc.. if they say then it is thier bad luck on getting allocated to such will find their statements wrong if u discuss with people in few other projects..

Even in case of salary initially it will be higher in one company but you will find the salary of another company higher in second year.That is if you take avg of salary from the time of joining to next 6 yrs all of these top companies will be almost equal.

The only criteria left is the growth potential/fundamental of the company.As you know TCS is ASIA’s No1 It company with projects all over the world and they have signed long term contract from our BSNL to US, European companies so the company will survive even if there is any fall in IT boom.

TCS, IBM or CTS ?- I would say that on the parameters discussed above I find TCS and CTS as 50:50 choice.TCS runs more in a conventional way adopted from TATA manufacturing group.

Positives of this are that you won’t loose your job but negative is that age will always be counted for superiority.Where as CTS is comparatively young organisation and therefore more flambouyant and aggressive in approach from marketing to canteen ..

IBM is no no for me because the weight of IBM logo is too much for it’s indian managment to handle hence employee’s don’t get to work on what they can get in TCS or CTS.

Now if you ask me to choose 1 out of TCS and CTS then I have to vote TCS 51 % as I am employee of it and I feel it is the best that’s why I am here but I am sure if u ask the same question in CTS community then you will get another answer simply because people there think that CTS is the best and that’s why they are there
