    Very unfair company to employees and customers. Even damaging to US by using unethical and illegal visa practices.

    Sales Executive (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsOne should think of working here for a month or two only in case there is no other respectable job available.

    ConsCompany pays bonus / incentive only partially and that too after 6 months of closing the financial year provided the employee is on pay roll on the date of the payout. 95% of HCL sales people in US have been brought from India on H1B visa by declaring incorrect job descriptions to immigration. This is done to ensure that the salaries paid to sales executives are almost equal to the salaries of truck drivers in US. Even these sales executives working on truck drivers' salary are not paid their incetives at all or paid only partially.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot worth giving any advice

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Network Support (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    Prosnone the collect a paycheck and start looking for another company to work for.

    ConsWhen you are an HCL employee they pay as if you where in india you need to sub your income with Food Stamps to help you make ends meat. one of the most worse companies to work for. They take over a network support contract in the US and by the end of a year the US company is looking to get rid of them. they win the contract because they are cheap and they lie. you get what you are paying for. they lied to there employees and customers. they need to import more H1B Visas from india to Survive In the USA. When HCL bring people from India they last 6 months they jump to another US company looking for more money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey dont tell the true all lies. good company to be a union shop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Worst Consulting Firm in the USA

    SAP Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe company was a pleasure to work for until it was purchased by the Indian firm, HCL. All has changed since that time. See Cons.

    ConsHCL has the weakest management team I have ever encountered. Most seem to be castoffs from IBM or other larger firms. HCL forces the consultants to use a very tiny US travel agency. It was selected only because the owner is related to an executive at HCL. The cost to clients has more than doubled in some instances. HCL also charges the client a full-day per diem, but only pays consultants for the actuals. HCL takes the difference. This is desperation on the part of HCL execs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pathetic policies, totally offshore minded company

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsVery good health insurance package. The premium is on a higher side, but the benefits are far better than offered by any of its competitor company.

    ConsThe company totally works on a offshore eccentric model. The HCL America employees are considered foreigners and there are no specific policies defined for them in their policy portal. All policies are listed based on assumption that all HCL America employees have moved from India to America. Things work here based on who you know rather than a defined process. No professionalism here at all. The HR system of the company is a pain to work with. If you are working on an employment offer with them, make sure to take all the agreed upon items in writing, as their HR do not stick to their word. It is next to impossible to schedule a personal meeting with senior management, as all of them work from offshore and do not have time to talk. In between the status meetings with senior manager and VP level people, the attendees start talking in their regional language assuming everyone belongs to Tamil Nadu.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to take care of employees and not consider them as use and throw items. Induce professional culture and measure the employees worth based on their work and not on who they know. Have policies listed down specifically for HCL America considering that employees of HCL America are not all that come from India and are hired locally in US.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
