    If you have no other option their is HCL!

    Service Desk (Current Employee) Cary, NC

    ProsIt takes alot to get let go at this company.

    ConsManagers in India do not listen to the US based managers or employee.
    Too many departments that don't talk to each other, so it makes it very hard to get any work done.
    Managers from India do not push back on clients that ask for the moon and stars, they promise everything then tell the employees to "Do the Needful!"
    **Glass ceiling for any US based employee wanting to move any higher than an E3**

    Advice to Senior Management* Pay employees what they are worth and don't expect they will stay because they already have a job.
    * Invest in more technology, you are a technology company you should have the latest and greatest.
    * Hold each team in a project accountable for the company's SLA.

    horrible

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay is mostly good but more based on what they want to pay you.

    ConsThey have a title for everything but it only means pay not responsibility. If you do well with disorganization and lieing to the customer this is the place to be

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who know the job not just recommended from someone else
