Pros

There are no PRO's. Always take insider employee feedback before joining

Cons

1. HCL treats resources like tissue papers. It has no respect towards employees. It doesn't matter how long are you associated with them 15,6,4,2 or a year. If you are on bench for 3 months than you would be asked to leave. It doesn't matter if you agree or not in paper or verbal. They will hand over relieving letters on the date they have decided. HR will never disclose this policy either in HR round or induction.
2. No Job security
Join this firm with a horizon of a year to get the necessary salary hike.
Long term commitment would is a risk.
3. No company transport.
4. No importance given to candidate location preference.
5. Project chances given are also counted, if you reject or fail 3 project offers or selection rounds you would be asked to leave.
6. More importantly be very cautious while giving their contact for reference check to your new employer. Cause they always give negative feedback if you were asked to leave on bench.

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy in role
    Plenty of challenging projects to work on
    Generally friendly staff

    Cons

    Only really one career path / end point in the Delivery capability - SAP Proj Mgr, which is a very specific role. Think carefully about whether this is you.
    Too many projects in difficulty, affects culture e.g. too much firefighting and focus on results at expense of all else i.e. anything even remotely sensible or corporate.
    Too much selfish behaviour, a lot of buck passing, particularly from PMs. A lot of them have 15 years plus experience of doing this.
    No clear strategy for making it's way out of a small company mindset to a global player. It is now adivision of much larger company (HCL) and is effectively being dragged kicking and screaming into that entity. HCL don't really know UK consulting market, but even they will lose patience with the lack of corporate nous in old Axon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communicate long term strategy and plans to staff
    Take more of an interest in personal development and career progression of your staff
    Devote more time to building a corporate mindsight / sense of belonging for staff

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
