    Journey with HCL Technologies

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsIt is a great experience working with a great organisation like HCL Technologies. I am getting ample opportunities to showcase myself. The training organised by the company is always extensive and the faculties are always excellent.Moreover, HCL is a learning curve, always there is something new that you pick at work and try and implement it to see to the better of your operation.
    The management is supportive of your plan and have enrolled many a project for ideas to be used on a common platform and recognized the deserving ones.
    The support from management is good and the co- workers attitude is always welcoming.

    ConsSince company is big, you need to devote considerably.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is very friendly and supportive but would be more helpful if they take the feedback from the grass-root level.

    Freedom to live your dreams

    Global Human Resources (Current Employee)
    Quincy, MA

    Pros- Every individual is equipped with the freedom to perform out of the box.
    - Entrepreneurship is a built-in attribute of HCL's work culture, which we call "ideaprenurship" here.
    - It is an equal opportunity employer which offers the same wide space to everyone irrespective of your type of professional engagement (Contractor or a Full Time employment).

    Cons- If you don't have a goal or a vision to achieve that, then it's just an organization which runs the payroll on time, invests (or wastes a lot of time) in learning, takes care (involves in irrelevant activities) of personal development.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep empowering people the way you guys have been doing from past two decades. Core is the foundation which can bear all the transformational changes by the time. Please hold this gratitude always.

    HCL has been a friendly and secure corporate port to dock my career ship at.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAt HCL, Ideapreneurship encourages germination of ideas, nurturing and implementing them thereby providing a great platform for individual and organizational growth. Leadgen is another initiative aimed at tapping business opportunities identified by HCLites and recognizing them for their customer-facing and marketing skills.

    ConsThough work-life balance may get affected for a few HCLites, especially for those working in shifts, better planning and counseling would definitely help restore it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA stronger focus on recognizing and retaining talented professionals would go a long way in creating a better knowledge organization and spur HCL's growth further.
