    I worked at HCL Workforce Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I got the job! Which at the time I was thankful for

    Cons

    Back-stabbing is rife!!! Commission never paid & Management are more than happy to steal your ideas, put you on a pedestal then squeeze you out to add to their already 'Hire & Fire' culture, with 28 people leaving in 8 months in one division it is one of the worst places I have worked and it comes from the top, it is filtered down, if you are unlucky enough to not be in a 'top job' then expect to be down trodden and blamed for everything, this company is transparent in it's two-faced-ness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management is, employ new Managers, Team leaders etc. It all comes from the top, the problems occur from the attitudes and carelessness from the top of the triangle.

    I have been working at HCL Workforce Solutions full-time

    Pros

    I get my salary on time every month.

    Cons

    If you are an european employee you won't get any training, apart from poor online material on their intranet. No career path whatsoever. Lots of politics. The only way to grow in your career is to be your boss best mate. Managers are completely useless an unexperience are they got to their management position only by being friends with higher management and not for their professionalism or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve pay and invest in your employees. This whole 'employee first' is a beautiful motto to divulge to the rest of the world but the fact is that hcl do not care about their employees.

    Pros

    friendly environment, the entire leadership at all levels are very approachable. There is scope and time given for learning within the organisation

    Cons

    too many protocols and the midlevel leadership does not possess any powers to provide career growth. governed by archaic rules

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to work more like a corporate environment. should not be stuck with the number of years theory rather with result oriented performance

    Feedback on new acquisition

    I have been working at HCL Workforce Solutions

    Pros

    There are many opportunities worldwide and I personally think HCL does it's best as a Job Hunter company.

    Cons

    Unreasonably low salary, lesser benefit, when during acquisition, HCL takes the opportunity to take away your existing benefit. The administration and information is not transparent. Poor HR/Admin. For example, when you seek for details, you will be redirected to the portal and you get no information from there and when you return to the HR/Admin, it took really long to get the ‘answer’ and most of the time, it is either the answer is not firmed or they are not answering you question at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HCL should keeps its good job in finding new job opportunities.

    Pros

    Your fellow recruiters and like family, excellent team members who are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Poor training, just thrown in the deep end and expected to know what the hell you are on about.

    Poor salary and holiday benefits which you have to fight for.

    Horrible management who have no respect for their team members, they have no idea what is going on, poorly organised and take days off as and when they please.

    Favoritism is big in this company if you don't brown nose the dragon that is the manager don't expect any favors.

    No opportunity to progress within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe get involved with your recruiters and see what is going on instead of sitting behind your computer barking orders around when you have no idea what is going on.
