    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    HCL has a great company culture and a lot of opportunity. Quite a few really good people to work with in a large variety of areas. One interesting aspect of HCL is that the management really empowers people to lead and make their own decisions.

    Cons

    Compensation is by large in line with the rest of the industry (meaning stagnant or declining). I don't blame HCL for this, because you see this across the entire IT service industry. I know the previous and current CEO and one of the challenges the current CEO (Anant Gupta) has is that he is not a visionary like Vineet Nayar (previous CEO). He is great at Sales and Operations, but not really at looking at what HCL needs to do to stay competitive within the next 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a company HCL needs to invest more in potential future opportunities. HCL operates like all other India players (visibility of 6-12 month or business), which really means they are not looking at potential opportunities that can yield large growth in a 3-5 years time.

    Overall it was good. Though the peers support was great, managers always try to suppress your work.
