    Very poor experience

    I have been working at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Things seem to move quickly in terms of delivering solutions but...

    Cons

    Solutions are thrown in mishmash and handover to bau support is non-existent.

    Worse is management thou. If you are non-indian you will be discriminated against. No career or training for westerners. I have many years career and experience but it is not relevant as I'm not Indian. hr process not followed correctly. Managers blatantly lying
    A genuinely horrible company, who talk the talk but fail on all accounts to walk the walk. I would seriously advise any fellow IT professional to go elsewhere, ignore the hype as once inside...the reality is far from the hype. This company believe it fair to remove ooh standby rate...and expect to be able to contact me out of hours, where they expect to pay me a rate of 1× normal pay whatever time of night....and even if it inconveniences my family life!!!

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked with some brilliant people, staff cheered each other up lots.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they're doing, they did their very best to demotivate and discourage staff. Staff who had many years experience were ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least attempt to dress professionally

    I have been working at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    No Qualifications required.
    No experience required
    handy for students
    good training
    fair commission
    you will learn things such as the "small print in contracts"

    Cons

    The management and team leads - useless and lazy.. and some cases broke hcl rules
    cold calling calling people who didn't want to talk to you
    selling products which are useless
    pay not enough for the abuse you get
    poor hours.. started at 12-9

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    before taking a contract out for selling. make sure it can sell.
    show more respect to employees
    invest in a better system.
