    I have been working at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    the best reason to work in HCL is the culture that the company possess , the culture of Ideapreneurship , every employee has a license to ideate in this organization . we can be our own enterpreneurs and the company will support us in every possible way . There is a culture of ideation and inverting the pyramid which means employees always at the top of the pyramid and are empowered , enthused , encouraged to innovate and excel

    Cons

    the challange could be how to showcase your innovation as best innovation as 90,000 employees ideate in HCL .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making process more simpler and motivating employees to adapt to the beautiful culture of HCL and make HCL world's largest Ideapreneurship company in the world .

    Pros

    If there's one organization that's open to ideas, it's HCL. My batchmates are placed in various IT service providers including IOPs, and they all face rigid hierarchy that seems to get in the way of great ideas being implemented. Here at HCL Tech, we are encouraged to take risks with our seniors and team constantly backing us up. If there's one thing we lack, it's the fear of failure.

    Cons

    I think recreational facilities could be improved a bit. A few foosball tables, a basketball court and a football field wouldnt hurt i suppose :)

    Pros

    The mission of Employer first customer second is to provide business owners and their employees with quality services. HCL doing the best part in it. A best place to learn grows and shine.
    Better place to work with your family, I mean to say HCL gives employment to the HCLite’s family if they meets the requirement.

    Cons

    Career growth can be differentiated into two types, one is financial growth of an individual another one is self-development. Here we can get at least one for sure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the employer first and customer second council, would be great if the council have more concentrate on customers too

    Pros

    EFCS policy is onceof the best. If your expectation from an Organization is Career Growth along with the Organization growth then HCL is the Best place. The Employee is allowed to take the Responsibility. Work Culture have no words to say.

    Cons

    Long timers are not considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The is no doubt on Values, Perks and Work Culture. But the Longer timers should be given some importance.

    I have been working at HCL Technologies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    One of the major pros of working with HCL Tech is being exposed to various functions.
    It provides for personal learning and growth.
    The work culture and the process is transparent making way for a better understanding of responsibilities.

    Cons

    TAT being a bit on the higher end, there is a delay in certain process'
    A lot of flexibility is asked out of the employee due to frequent changes structurally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top management needs to have more interactions with the bottom line employees at frequent intervals to discuss the organisational path's to give a more better sense of ownership about each individuals responsibility.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for employees to work in an organization that gives liberty to unleash innovative thinking within themselves. The employees, who deliver business transformation and growth with a combination of their technical and management expertise are later converted to IDEAPRENEURS at HCL. Appreciation along with growth opportunites to the deserving employees is a part and parcel of HCL's culture. Female employees are given special preference with innumerable facilities to enhance the FEMALE DIVERSITY ratio within the organization. Employees working at HCL, prefer a long term association with the organization. Even if they resign and join some other organization, they are always willing to return to HCL. The only reason of this comeback is the role that the employees enjoy at HCL. The advanced / newest technologies and the responsibilities of an individual contributor gives the employees a sense of contentment, that no other organization gives. At the end of the day all of us want to feel contented about our work profile.

    Cons

    HCL offers salary hikes as per market standards. Over expectation of compensation may lead to disappointment. Background Verification checks are quite stringent and no clemency is given to employees without proper education and work experience documents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should think about breaking the conventional trend of offering normal compensation, which would make HCL a dream company for every IT / non IT Professional.

    Pros

    A platform where your ideas are heard and implemented if it adds value to the system.
    Even if it does not you are free to impliment in your own process and show how effective it is. Growth path is defined if you know how to grab the oppurtunities and show what you are best at. Leadership qualities develope while you run and fall and strive to get up to achieve your goals; provided you know what to want to achieve.

    Cons

    Decision making takes time as it follows a series of approvals but i think it is required for a better decission making. "It's better to know your sailor better before you hand over the ship".
