    Work Culture in HCL Tech

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Lead Engineer  in  Noida (India)
    Current Employee - Lead Engineer in Noida (India)

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

    Pros

    HCL has wide range of platforms to work upon , and hence provide good technical learning. If you deliver well , you will be recognized.I have worked under some good managers who know how to appreciate hard work and reward suitably. When there is urgent requirement , then one may need to stay late for weeks, other wise HCL has good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Some times one may have to report to multiple managers and it becomes difficult to prioritize things. If you have been hired for some specific technology and the project ends and there is no other such project , management may put you on projects involving technology of not your interest, sometimes spoiling your profile.
