TCS NextStep portal facing severe strain

engineer holding laptop

TCS has made it really simple for selected candidates to keep their selves updated regarding the developments in the company with their NextStep portal. TCS also uploads relevant information and documents regarding the freshers who can then easily download them. The best part if obviously security (as all candidates are provided with their own unique passwords, an excellent step taken by TCS to ensure security) and convenient ease of use (since candidates can easily login and get their stuffs in absolutely no time).

Till now everything was fine, but the a small crisis started when TCS asked it’s 24,885 selected candidates to download their offer letters within a fixed deadline. Each an everyone kept trying to login (even if 25k not together, but surely approx 6-7k could well be trying simultaneously), bringing the site to an absolutely standstill. The site refused to even load under this inhuman load. Google trends showed the search term “nextstep tcs” had a search trend which was ”volcanic” in hotness. No doubt, this site is under extreme stress right now and hope there is some solution.

However, in spite of this trouble, at times the site is functioning properly. Bit by bit, few students are being able to get their offer letters. However, the major portion of the selected candidates are still in the dark and are trying to log in to the site whole day. I only wish if some of us could stop for sometime letting others download, and then we would download ours. Hope this situation really gets solved soon. But I have full faith in TCS, which being the #1 company, will solve this problem easily.

How to download the offer letter successfully? A few tips.

1. Use Internet Explorer (any version)
2. Visit the site during odd hours (eg. at night around 2a.m.)
3. After clicking “Download” wait for 30 seconds.
4. Help your friends by signing out of the site after you have finished once.
5. If all fails, contact your TPO at the earliest!
