    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.

    I worked at HCL Technologies as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have no Pros to share in regards to HCL America or their affiliates

    Cons

    Poor communication with US based employees. They changed me from hourly to salary without notification. Still waiting on my 3x pay for working Thanksgiving, Christmas and holidays since. Since quitting I have had no less than 15 calls regarding the job I left. I DO NOT recommend hiring on as a contractor for HCL in any capacity.

    Pros

    - As long as you get into a good long standing project, things will be good. - I'd the opportunity to work on some really interesting & innovative stuff in development; play multiple roles in the team. - Beyond a point it is completely how much initiative you take to take your career forward. You will have lots of opportunities to steer your career in your choice/direction - Helpful colleagues, mentors and managers

    Cons

    - salary below industry standard - politics

    Pros

    You learn systems that other companies want experience in. You can develop a lot of your entry level exeperience in IT.

    Cons

    Raises are a joke, they will promote within and only give Max 5% raises and average 2% regardless where you go. Ex: Level 2 IT, Quality, IT Lead.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management all around and the team leads will also agree. The TSRs are treated like a number and will get harrassed if they are troublesooting with a customer after 14 mins. You can work your way up easily but don't expect a nice raise.
