    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good Money. - Compared to other Indian companies HCL provides usually more flexibility for customer demands. - Strong financial situation.

    Cons

    Similar to other Indian companies HCL is a winner of the Outsourcing Hype. The business is a volume business, the company culture is extremely policy driven (which is necessary in a volume business). Service Quality, customer satisfaction, smart solutions and long term focus is not really important as long as the outsourcing demand is high. Very strong marketing that does not reflect the reality in delivery quality and employee culture.

    Advice to Management

    Less wishful thinking, more reality checks.

    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 (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 Management

    At least attempt to dress professionally

    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 Management

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