    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of freedom. Top clients to work with. Leading edge IT.

    Cons

    I was new to the IT space let alone the Sales organization. There was no structure around my on-boarding. In fact the first day I went into work, I was the only one in the office till about 10AM. The HR didn't have any idea that I was joining work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an on-boarding process and try to retain employees.

    Pros

    Good learning opportunities and given good scope to display the capabilities.

    Cons

    Work Life balance is not a word in their dictionary. You are expected to work day night. Even after doing good work , one can not expect to have promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more value to each resource and try to negotiate with the leaving employee in monetary terms as well.

    Pros

    Smart people, good compensation & benefits

    Cons

    Management was a revolving door and they expect way too much of their employees. No work/life balance. Once HCL acquired Axon, things went south.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people do their job and get out of their way. Don't get so caught up on internal processes that your people don't have time to take care of their clients.

    As I mentioned, there were some management problems. But what else is new!?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to examine middle management from other than your primary perspective. See how things look to people underneath a middle manager.

    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Good culture of work
    Single status policies

    Cons

    I have seen very often that people with poor skills stay and people with good skills leave, all because of the money.
    Poor management decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job security,less pay,Biased apprisals,highly fluctuation HR polices,Pay cuts during recession,layoff s during recession,less clients. please take measures to overcome thisThe "do not counter offer" policy does not work in my country. People with great skills left because of this, which has hit directly in the company performance.
