    HR policies are very poorly implemented.

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsGood PR skills can help your growth very much.

    ConsNo appreciation of qualification and education.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPls strengthen your HR department. Delivery managers should not be allowed to act as dictators.

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

    Work is good, but administration is pathetic

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsYou may get good work in some projects

    ConsAll I can say is that I have been trusting the company & idealogy since past many years, but it feels that they believe in breaking the trust. The company says that they have fully transparent appraisal process & all in the company know that they run a parallel Excel sheet. Now that is a mockery in many ways: its not transparent and when there is a automated system that too in IT company, then why do we have go for separate process. Growth only happens to senior guys, they are not worried about anyone or even organisation. These things are only for clients and juniors. HR is best here, it gets everything done from employee by terrifying them of repercussions in Appraisal. And, if by any chance you want anything from HR, they won't even bother to reply.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust be what you preach. It doesn't look good that you say something else & do opposite.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Empowering experience at HCL

    Great with various challenges

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsFlexible working
    Efficient Company Leadership
    Brand Name

    Cons3 Month Fixed Notice Period
    Limited Growth Opportunities for High Level Technical Resources
    Too much Sales driven (Customers are promised deliverable which are at time infeasible and even then saqles is non accountable)
    Average to below average Salary Structure
    Average Opportunities for Skill development
    Low and Middle level management has low or no vision

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare and create vision for low and middle management
    Salary structure has to be corrected (atleast for top performers) to retain talent
    Same promotion metrics should be used for all (In my experience seen favoritism openly and flattery working bringing incompetent people especially in low and middle management)
    Define Growth path for technical resources (Mostly they are going towards management, I have seen a lot of resources leaving outside as HCL doesn't have architects role easily available)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employee first for sure...Provides many opportunities to learn and grow if you are loyal to you work

    Deputy Manager (Current Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsBest reason to work at HCL is the opportunities you'll get irrespective of the experience or educational level. You may be a fresher but if you have potential, HCL management would not hesitate to put you in a role you really deserve. There is a high growth rate for talented people with constant appreciation and motivation to work better. There's always scope of learning and performing better and the management would give you all the support you need to make things better. There's also flexibility in terms of timings, dress code etc and the ultimately what matters is how you perform. Also your ideas will never be suppressed and if your immediate management doesn't appreciate them, you have multiple portals to express your innovative mindset.

    ConsOne of the major cones in working with this company is the appraisal rate. Be rest assured that the appraisal would be only once a year and the mid term appraisal is just for name sake. Also the appraisal takes months to get closed. Hike rate is maximum 10% which is very less as compared to other companies

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement does pay a lot of attention to work however somehow there's very less attention or a plan for personal growth of a team member unless he/she becomes a cry baby and starts whining. It would be really good to keep growth goals for an individual laid out at the beginning and he/she would be awarded well if he/she achieves those and more. Management needs to invest more in the team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
