    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    I am able to make the schedule I need

    Cons

    Most dishonest company I've ever worked for. They do not care about their American employees at all. They do not want to pay an honest salary or give employees benefits by making them permanent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your employees and stop letting people in India dictate how we work here in the United States.

    Pros

    No pros. I have not had a single pro since working for hcl for the past year. Many people left because they were not getting paid

    Cons

    Be prepared to work without getting paid. Promises raise in salary never happens, they tell you that's it's coming son you keep working. Overtime pay is less than half your hourly rate. Culturally biased management groups, if you're not Indian you're not getting paid right

    I have been working at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Independence, less bureaucratic, growth opportunities, overall intent.

    Cons

    Poor implementation of processes, lack of understanding of technology, values volumes over quality, happy to do low end work instead of nurturing employees for strategic high end work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more. Change business to be a value player instead of a volume player. Get better at identify the right employees and nurturing them.
