    Pros

    They ask employees to punch in and punch out a Smart Card which is given at the time of induction. Nobody looks after you. You have to chase training co-ordinator. Most of the time they do not pick their phone. Taking benefit of it we can come in any shift, punch the card in, go to home come back after 10 hours and puch out. After joining this company we can make a fool of lethargic managment and can get salary without work but we need to come and go on our own.

    Cons

    Background verfication is a big issue here. Beware- if you have worked in a small organisation or if it is closed, do not join this company as they won't verify it and after 2-3 months they will suddenly call you and ask you to leave. I have seen at least 15-20 cases in my short tenure or 4 months with this company in 2014. I am graduate from Lucknow University and they said they are not able to verify my marksheets. They gave different reasons at different time. I submitted photocopy of my marksheets at least 4 times as(they told me that photocopies are not clear as told to HCL by 3rd party verification company.) When I submitted scanned copies they after 20 days they told that Lucknow University is responding to their verification. I have been in this industry for 8 years and worked in various BPOs. Never faced this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't spoil career of freshers and experienced people. Hire them after proper Voice and Accent round and Ops round. If there is a policy to give bonus to new hires then it should be clear to recruiters. New hires find a totally different theory of bonus when they go to process training. Hiring BTechs in bulk from far of Universities(seems these Universities are paying them to hire their students) and then firing them if they do not clear Voice and Accent training. Why do you hire them? Why you do not keep your paramenters high so the right candidate should be hired?

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good exposure to work and ( if lucky ) opportunity to work in multiple domains. Sometimes, if work role demands and if you are lucky, you can get onshore assignments too. Also, the culture in this company is bit easy and friendly and not very strict like MNCs.

    Cons

    If you want to learn a lot and not concerned by lower salary, pathetic work life balance and hectic life this is a place for you. Many employees just stays here for average of 2 years and then leave the company to join better pay masters. In fact, there are significant percentage of employees who have joined this for the second time. It's still like a government company with slightly higher salary structure for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the compensation trend is distributed evenly across various employees with different experiences. Often it happens that a higher experienced employee who had stayed with the company for quite some time is getting less compared to the lesser experienced employee who has joined HCL after joining few companies.
