    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Company to work with
    Free CAB facility for all employees
    In-hand salary is more as compared to other MNCs
    Less deductions

    Cons

    Basic Pay is less due to which PF will become very low
    Since Basic is very low, so during leaving company your leave balance will be paid in terms of basic salary/day
    Increment is not always good/satisfying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please become more focused on employee friendliness and avoid much politics, give priority to work rather than other unnecessary stuffs.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and diversification of experiences. You will have to put in efforts to reap the benefits. That is true for every organization. This is what I would say to the critics of this great company.

    Cons

    As I said, you have to put in efforts to reap the benefits. Managers and HR are helpful if you seek help and the internal processes for career development are very solid. Anyone with a hunger for success can do really well here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary is on the lower side for most entry-level employees but I believe that the benefits start to appear in the long run. I would suggest some other incentives to the keep the talent from moving out to places where they see short-term high returns. That was something I did and I wished I would have been given some incentive to stay. The opportunity cost of staying for me was too high.

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My team was good and had I good mentors. The work was good as I was in a product development team.

    Cons

    Most of I the managers I've seen are bad.
    They do not have a deep culture for freshers and fail to utilize the talent recruited at colleges.
    Also not in their culture is prouct development. So, they treat us the same way as anybody else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Freshers can do much more than you can think of. Use them appropriately.
