    Current Employee - Project Manager  in  Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)

    Pros

    To date I have been very pleased with my position at HCL. The company employs very talented individuals and assistance is at hand if required for everything relating to work and much more. Employees have been given the opportunity to raise their ideas and be rewarded if implemented and the on-line training package available to all is excellent. In my time with the company, HCL have received fantastic reviews from the client.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be a language barrier especially in the terminology used in emails between the many nationalities employed by HCL. This is just a very minor issue which results in more emails generated between staff until the wording is fully understood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would try and make the promotion chain much clearer as some staff do not find out why they have not been promoted in my experience. HR should be able to advise to staff why they have not been promoted rather than make it a long journey for a reason.
