TCS Split Wide Open - The End 

TCS Split Wide Open - The End

Life after TCS

I had to clear all my dues - the HRA and the travel allowance. After clearing the dues, I had to pay the bond amount of Rs. 50,000 along with three months' basic salary which totals to Rs. 76,100. I was given two weeks time to pay the bond amount and I am yet to pay it. One thing is that if you don't pay your bond amount, you won't be given an experience letter - I anyway don't need it coz I worked for les than a month. I had to quit TCS only because my MS admit came late - midway through training. But those few days I worked in TCS - they were really memorable. You may hear a lot of critcism about TCS but believe me the TCS ILP program is supposed to be world class and it's true. Even today - I feel proud to have been a part of the TATA brand. So we come to the end of another chapter of my life.......

Some other day, it would be about some other company..............

To all the TCSers reading this, make sure you don't miss out on having fun during the ILP - make the maximum out of it. Cheers to you all..............

Comment Hi Saishankar I have to very frankly admit that i never read a better treatise of the ILP tranining experience untill i read yours. You have answered the FAQs in an unmatched style, truly! Untill TCS alters its ILP tranining course structure at TRivandrum, this exhaustive treatise of the ILP Trivandrum is a must read for every fresh TCS recruit to have all impending myths dispelled. Effortless reading, really! And i know, when something can be read effortlessly, a great effort has gone into its writing. Thank you very much! Sudhir B Iyer, Bombay.

Comment hi...i kept seeing your threads in the community but i never made the effort to go thru it...and today i was kinda bored so i thought: "why not read this guys blogs? something better than nothing,,," and know wat, i'm really glad i did...should have read it joinin TCS on 9/ trivandrum...the info that you've provided is really something worth appreciation...especially for someone like me who's gonna be moving out of my home for the first time...and also that i have really possesive parents who are damn apprehensive about letting me out into the big bad world...:P i think all your blog entries would help to put their mind at rest...thanks again...and all the best to you in all your endeavours...bye
