    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Good company overall, has a U.S. Presence but lacks a TRUE U.S. Presence, too much of the company is based out of India. More U.S presence where HCL can be run on its own by U.S employees, and better compensation of it employees will bring greater retention rates and make HCL a true competitor. An international company cannot make a real presence without letting other nations who understand the business within their own culture run the company.

    Cons

    Needs a real U.S presence, cannot run an international business without letting each nation have control. Add more than 1 HR rep for 3 different buildings.

    Advice to Management

    If employees are first as your slogan states, then hire more HR reps to handle issues for your employees and pay your employees more, especially within the U.S, you have to pay to get the performance you want. Otherwise you will continue to be a revolving door/stepping stone.

    Lots of opportunities to work with client businesses. People who are interested in working at the client site will get opportunities to travel onsite.

    Onshore-offshore model has its challenges. Have to work pretty much round the clock for a smooth coverage. There could be resources in the team that needs a bit of coaching.
