    Freedom, but at the cost of some money

    Technical Lead (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsRespect, Recognition, Freedom and more open culture. There is one saying in HCL, you can put your name on a Brick, on a wall or on an entire building. As with every other organization in the world, here to you find different people, but the culture as a whole is very open and not very hierarchical as any typical Indian company. Though we are seeing some freedom is being taken off in the last couple of years, its better than what I hear from my friends in other similar companies.

    ConsIndia or in other countries, the compensation at HCL is always below the average market rate. This is always a pain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider salary as one of the key retention tool, apart from other emotional things. And there is lot of scope to improve in the internal processes which takes more time than needed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    HCL has opened some great opportunities for me to learn and expand my IT experience.

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsFreedom, autonomy, opportunity. HCL allows its employees to take full ownership of their careers. Managers do not micromanage. Managers are supportive.

    ConsHCL is somewhat disconnected from itself. It is very decentralized. Getting answers or information can be a challenge. Their own in-house phone support is pretty bad. HCL is an Indian company with a corporate office in the US, And the language barrier can be extremely frustating.
