    Pros

    Great entry level job...I learn so much and the benefits are better than the state employees get. Short and Long Term disabilities are covered for permanent employees...

    Cons

    The glass ceiling for everyone not from India is very apparent and frustrating. Some of the ideas implemented from the top down show a lack of cultural understanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Policies should not favor one group over another. People expect to be compensated for their time and effort, and not doing so while having ridiculous standards means not retaining the people you should.

    Pros

    HCl is a great company to work for. They are very large in INDIA. There are many opportunity hear for Database Scientist. If you are willing travel they work with thousands of companies across the globe. The people are very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Come of the challenges working here is that you start as a contractor. They tell you its full time but like any consulting firm when the contract is over its time to find a new job. They tell you its full time because they believe that there are so many job available that you will always find work. Not true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice to management. I can only think of pointing out negatives. Stay positive would be advice.

    Pros

    I can not think of any pros

    Cons

    agreed to pay relocation fee, but after I joined, when I contact HR about this issue, they never give response
    didn't get my offer letter after I had worked there for one month when I requested for that, the management is really bad
    hire a java developer for non programming purpose, it's wasting time working there
    always try to save money from employees
    always speaks India dialects with me, I don't know what they are talking about, once one person talked to me : "Do you want to compare with me", really embarrassed to work there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the middle layer management is nothing, make everything like a mess

    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Very dynamic, customer focused, 'get things done' attitude. Good managers, got paid on time, would work for them again.

    Cons

    It's outsourcing so be prepared for the fact that not everything will be perfectly aligned from day one. Also be prepared to hit the ground running at full speed!

    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    Unlike typical Indian consulting companies, HCL acquired AXON a premier consulting company.

    Cons

    AXON became what it was by acquiring a lot of small consulting boutique firms, so culture is yet to be defined...
