    Last company to work for if you have no other options

    IT Analyst (Current Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsA lot of learning since you inherit a lot of duties that was not the original included in the first place. You get extra miles points which you can redeem prizes if you are in India

    ConsLack of communication
    Web System sucks, suppose to make easy for user but I guess they care less since it is hard to use and complex.
    - Employee first company motto seems to be a myth
    - You get xtra miles which you can not redeem prizes since you are not in India

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to compensation and adjust allowance based on location in US realistically. Cost of living increase 25% yet compensation increase is close to 0-1%. This needs to be taken seriously if you want to keep loyalty and talent, else people will be jumping.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    no clear communication, lake of information sharing.

    Recruiter (Former Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    Prosdon't see any reason to work here. they pay less, and no working culture.

    ConsSome managers are cheater, no clear communication. lake of information sharing, and No work ethics. they pay also very less.

    Advice to Senior Managementtry to reduce communication gap. give little more freedom to share information which is needed to understand the work even to contrctors, or Dont expect they know every thing about your company process. and create a standard work process. which is well explained by available material/help.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsJob security
    Onsite opportunity for offshore employees.
    I can not say any other pros about this company.

    Consvery less salary.
    No appreciation.
    Senior management is focused only profit and keep sucking employee blood.
    They dont care employee they care for client. weather client is wrong they will blame to employee.
    They bring employee on L1 visa and give very less salary in comparision to market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOnly saying Employee first does not make it. What they say they should mean it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Complete Mess

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsYou will have lots of work and this is part of a global organization, so you will work with people from all over the world, but mostly India.

    ConsThis company has such a bad culture. Blame, blame, blame, escalate, escalate, escalate. Don't work for this company or it's parent company, HCL Technologies. You'll get thrown under the bus for sure. Often departments are understaffed, like HR and legal, so it is impossible to get things done. Seen several people in the company get stiffed on travel. Poor communication and leadership from upper management to Vice Presidents (everyone is a vice president). Don't give out your personal cell phone number. You'll get calls at 2 am on very low level issues that some guy considers a priority across the globe. Was yelled at several times by coworkers when I asked for approvals on suspect situations to cover my ass, rather than being provided the approval. You get completely disrespected by other employees here. It is the standard, not the rare occurrence. Complete lack of professionalism across the board.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
