    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    HCl is a great company to work for. They are very large in INDIA. There are many opportunity hear for Database Scientist. If you are willing travel they work with thousands of companies across the globe. The people are very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Come of the challenges working here is that you start as a contractor. They tell you its full time but like any consulting firm when the contract is over its time to find a new job. They tell you its full time because they believe that there are so many job available that you will always find work. Not true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice to management. I can only think of pointing out negatives. Stay positive would be advice.

    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Unlike typical Indian consulting companies, HCL acquired AXON a premier consulting company.

    Cons

    AXON became what it was by acquiring a lot of small consulting boutique firms, so culture is yet to be defined...

    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Very dynamic, customer focused, 'get things done' attitude. Good managers, got paid on time, would work for them again.

    Cons

    It's outsourcing so be prepared for the fact that not everything will be perfectly aligned from day one. Also be prepared to hit the ground running at full speed!
