Stupid (real) ways to get fired during recession (in Infosys and TCS)

These two are real incidents and one from Infosys and another from TCS.

1. Create color xerox copies of your bus passes and use company’s bus service for free 

Yes some of the freshers in Infosys tried this and sadly had a sad ending to their career. News is that infosys doubled its bus pass rates and pushed these thrifty freshers into such a genuine idea.

2. Try to hack your CEO’s account

This time its TCS, two Mumbai smarties who somehow found their CEO Ramadurai Employee Id and tried to log in to his ultimatix account (TCS all in all web application). Maybe they were thinking Ramadurai keeps a simple password or default password ??? . They tried it three times and his account was locked.  It appears that Ramadurai’s secretary wasnt too happy and he/she ordered a probe and the culprits were found within a day and asked to resign meekly. Good thing is that since TCS asked them to resign, nothing will be mentioned in their conduct certificates.  Hope these unlucky chaps try their luck in next year’s black hat meet.

Ok now dont give me a third reason which goes like “Writing a blog like this about your own company”.

Since I had joined a new company recently after quitting TCS, I couldnt collect much inside information about TCS. Anyway some of my friends and blog followers contributed the above incidents. Keep mailing me something happening around these IT firms and let me update it for you.
