    Former Employee - Director in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Always many new projects and clients
    2. If you like to move every 6-9 months, you'll love this place
    3. If you are an Indian IIT grad and you write code, they'll love you
    4. Great place for Freshers (newly hired) because you'll be thrust into highly important roles early

    Cons

    1. VERY little management roles outside of India. 99% of the management and senior management roles are filled with Indian nationals living in the US.
    2. Anyone besides Indian males will be ignored for key positions
    3. If you don't write code, you should run and not walk
    4. Internal operational systems are really outdated
    5. Margin pressure is ridiculasly high...
    6. The consistency of the quality of the work of the offshore teams varies wildly from engagement to engagement..
    7. Clients are constantly oversold on HCL's capabilities... 25 yr olds are sold as "Sr. Architects",
    8. Bonus payments are seemingly derived from a game of darts played by someone in Noida.. no rhyme or reason
    9. Expect to work a regular shift from 9-6pm and then enjoy evenings from 9pm till midnight Sunday through Thursday

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not hard to do well but that's because expectations are so low.

    Cons

    - Terrible travel policies, they put you in really dirty hotels when you travel for work.
    - No career growth
    - no pay differential for people living in high cost locations.
    - Reimbursement for travel expenses takes a very long time and you don't always get back what you are owed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn about American travel policies, other companies do many things that will work much better.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
