    I worked at HCL Technologies

    Pros

    The pay was good and the job was at a nice company.

    Cons

    It was a contracting job with a very big client. Unfortunately there was no one there to make sure the supervisor was fair and no corrupt. There fired many people every week which should have been a red flag that something needed to be investigated. I was apart of that unlucky majority. If you were not liked for any reason that had nothing to do with your work performance they would make up something and say it was your work performance and then fire you. There was no one to talk to, the hiring agency is CDI, and they acted like their hands were tied and just tell you that the client chose not to specifically say why. It is a very sad thing in this day and age that people can cause you to lose your job just because they don't like you.
    The client have about 4 people that are really corrupt. HCL did nothing to investigate or find out any further. I was there for 8 months, I missed 2 days-- which was the lowest of anyone there and not even one eyebrow was raised at the sudden firing? The stress that everyone was under because of the constant firing was too much. I heard that it is better now because the supervisor of HCL has changed so that may be a good thing because I saw her a side of her that was very ugly and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    I understand this is a contract position but doesn't it cost you more money to hire someone else then to work with an existing employee? Also, if there are many firings, get a meeting together and find out what the problem is and maybe do some talking to your employees, the supervisor shouldn't just be able to speak for them. I felt like there was no one to talk to, I had never talked to anyone else but my supervisor so I felt if I went to someone else it would be causing a stir and I would get fired and low and behold, I did anyway. Very sad, I and many others were very good employees.

    Pros

    Overall the people that work for HCL are extremely intelligent and experienced. If you have a talent and stand out., you will get noticed.

    Cons

    Too focused on KPI statistics and not the actual work that goes behind it. They try to automate everything regardless of the fact that LOGIC sometimes is critical to the outcome.

    Pros

    There are excellent activities in the company to take part in. The company organizes various cultural events and Friday activities to try and ease employee stress.

    Cons

    The Work-Life balance is very moderate. This is really dependent on the client for whom we will be working and also our manager. It is a rare chance you might be able to find a good combination of the two.

    Advice to Management

    Please push back on certain aspects of client requests and be considerate towards your employees. "employee first" should not just be in words but also in how you make an employee be happy with the work/workplace.
