Unprofessional and chaotic organization structure

I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time for more than a year

ProsAggressive company growth has resulted in competitive salary for lateral hires

ConsThe overall culture is not to respect professional behavior, management style is by intimidation and not motivation

HR policies regarding travel and hotel is pathetic with limits that results in most employees getting entitles for sub standard accommodations and flight connections for their travel

Advice to Senior ManagementDecentralize decision making process to middle management to cut red tape and result in faster, mature decisions that affects confidence among employees as well as clients

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

HCL

Managing Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere is a select group of people that are great to work with at HCL. They really know their stuff and willing to work with you.

ConsThe company seems to be focused on reducing costs, and it must come from their India roots - I came from the Axon acquisition and the work we do isn't easily commoditized. No one at the senior levels from HCL understands what we do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
