    Pros

    Good work environment and balanced work-life

    Cons

    They are service providers, they focus more on providing timely services rather than quality services. They do not have a goal-oriented approach when dealing with client projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you deal with clients it is really important to understand their quality needs, their work flows and work procedures. Don't just focus on providing resources and getting things done.

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

    Pros

    Visibility to the way numerous companies work

    Cons

    Most management US opportunities above first line are given to Indian residents as a "reward" or retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got experienced management talent in the US - use it to grow your US business beyond the low cost provider!

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is plenty of work to be done, meaning a lot of opportunity is available to learn new skills.
    Accounts have service delivery managers and account managers onsite for easy availability.

    Cons

    Managers you are accountable to can become excessive - currently reporting directly to 5 people.
    No viable HR contact or representation actually based in the U.S. - almost all communication is over email with offshore HR who work daytime hours in India.
    Compensation is not merit or role based - it is pre-calculated based on your current wage.
    Account management is highly influenced by office politics and much of it is involving offshore resources with no transparency.
    Designations are not handed out according to job role (you may be doing Tier 3 work, while showing Tier 1 or 2 in their portal) but instead seem arbitrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have onshore HR representation, that is both high-ranking (enough to get into action) that work daytime U.S. hours.
    Build transparency about compensation, appraisal, and account status.
    If the company is going to continue to grow in the U.S., significant efforts should be made to bring some of the employee services onshore with the accounts.

    Pros

    This is a strong organization with great diversity and an awesome employee base. The company is focused on helping employees improve their skills sets and providing diverse work environments around the world.

    Cons

    Some of the non-IT managers believe they know more about IT than the SME's. You have to stand your ground or get run over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up your employees and hired consultants.
