    Good company for gaining marketable skills

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis company has good opportunities for those who are willing to invest time and energy to learn. A lot of different types of work (implementations, application outsourcing, datacenter migrations and management), so lots of options. Networking is key, as is the leader you work for.

    ConsDifficult for women in this company. Not a lot of training or ongoing education options in my group. You can get "lost" if you aren't comfortable promoting yourself and your skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick and strategy and stick to it long enough for it to work. Provide better networking and cross promotion opportunities, particularly for those identified as high performers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Tremendous experience working with HCL managing Applications, Teams, People, Projects & Accounts.

    Applications Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsDepends on the project. Had a good learning experience in various dimensions of a software project & account engagements.

    ConsMiddle level managers use all loop holes in fixing On Site salaries at various levels. Play with the systems in changing roles & responsibilities to manipulate salaries. All this done for showing "Profit margins" at project and account level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould have proper systems in place to provide reasonable salaries.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
