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

    Pros

    1. Good environment to learn.
    2. Supportive senior members (till they don't find you as a competition for them)
    3. Direct client interaction
    4. Onsite opportunities.
    5. Time to time employee re creation activities.

    Cons

    1. Very Low salary hike in some of the projects (at least in my project).
    2. Very opaque policies, who constantly try to prove that they are transparent.
    3. Full of politics (you're safe till the higher level colleagues don't find you as a competition for them).
    4. Very strange reasons for bad appraisals.
    5. Appraisal is never dependent on your performance and contribution to team.
    6. HR are really very slow. Even to receive your own money you need to wait for minimum 1 month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even the management and senior managers know , who is involved in politics and who are working and providing them the revenue. I request the managers, not to let go off the senior and knowledgeable person on cost of those people who are not doing anything except mails.

    Please change your policies about replacing a 7 or 8 year experienced guy with a 7 days old fresher.

    Please implement the quality gates that you boast about. Else, a time will come when All those who work would have left and only those who know nothing and only send mails would be left in the team.

    Pros

    none that i can think of

    Cons

    in terms of learning opportunities a lot depends on which client account you get assigned to, since HCL is a service provider.
    The management is happy in getting the daily work done and spares little thought over the engagement employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop a better criterion of select employees and retaining them, or the talent pool will drain out.

    Pros

    Good learning of technologies and processes.
    Good for freshers only.

    Cons

    Poor compensation as compared to market.
    No work life balance.Company's culture has dynamically changed.Hardly few projects which have good work life balance but they are support projects ,so minimal learning.
    Managers have huge power here and you cannoty say NO to them.If they say to come in shift you have to.If they say to stay late you have to.If they say to come on weekends you have to.In short you have to say Yes to whatever they say.
    I never saw politics in my previous companies.
    Onsite is no longer easy.H1 process takes at least a year that depends on lottery system.Its the only lollypop which a Manager has to offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up.You Cant dominate and control good resources.
    Give them Flexibility.Micro Management will not work in all cases.
