    Pros

    Good Work Place Work life balance No tension of work overall good company always love to join

    Cons

    salary is big issue - if you are working in a company since long you package will be very low as per market stranded. you are 1st rating either. There is no difference between of 1st rating guys to 3rd rating guys both will get same increment but just to normalization shake 1 rating guys will not get promotion because he is rated as 1st on the other hand 3rd rating guys will get the promotion because he will not feel pity. if you have a known person in good position then you will get promotion very quickly even though you are not deserve for. if you are a 1st rating guys and you are asking for promotion then every law and policy will comes into picture but on the other hand you have a known person all policy will flush into ..

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Onsite opportunities - Abundant Opportunity of Front Ending with cutomer - Sky is limit for learning and exposure - Has Many accounts so switching to another account is relatively easier

    Cons

    - Very high politics - Bootlickers are winners - Too many fancy designations and bands - No Criteria for promotions. Anyone gets promoted, sometimes twice in a year - People who dont work/perform poorly get rewarded - Hardworkers/good performers often get overloaded with work

    Advice to Management

    - Avoid rewarding people who dont work and simply bootlick. Easier said than done :) - Senior management needs to break their coterie and value performance - Organization stucutre of long hierarchy and fancy desingations needs to be revamped with leaner hierarchy
