  1. IT companies hired earlier for 4 to 5 lakhs package. Currently they are hiring freshers at 7 lakhs per anum. But they are not increasing the salary to earlier experienced persons. At least the starting salary of 7 is not paid to them. Thus they are leaving IT companies.

  2. Exploition in different spheres is common, human resources is badly managed.The IT companies in India do not adhere to the ethics and principles of labour laws.

  3. To top it, TCS doesn’t take back their ex-employees. It’s a sad when ex-employees want to go back but they don’t even consider. Have tried my best but no luck.
