    I worked at Axon Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, competitive salaries and benefits, good projects. People support each other and work toward the common goal. Overall a great company to work for. I left voluntarily and would go back for the right opportunity.

    Cons

    The equipment provided is pretty dodgy; many consultants provide their own laptops. Also, the requested admin software is only provided for the duration of the project and has to be renewed. It can be a cumbersome process and can go out of date while you are in the middle of crunch-time. Seems penny-wise and pound foolish. Doesn't show much consideration for the consultants in that respect.

     Review process is not very transparent, at least it doesn't seem so.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent technology refreshes for field consultants.

    Tracking actual hours on a project will lead to more accurate time/resource estimates.

    Pros

    HCL acquisition of Axon resulted in everyone with any skills leaving the firm

    Cons

    Where to start? Eliminating our benefits, firing all non-consulting US staff, no communication, the list is endless.

    Advice to Management

    Key your day job.

    I have been working at Axon Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay, bonus and travel benefits at AXON Solutions was great. They were very competitive in the HCM market, with a lot of different client possibilities.

    Cons

    The company is so large, that they care more about numbers, sales, etc., then they do about their own employees. They will not hesitate to get rid of talented, hard working employees, just to satisfy a project, a person in a project, or just to make themselves look good. As a result, their turnover is extremely high, and there are too many different HR departments and representatives, to take notice.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more vested interest in your employees, their growth and development needs, happiness with their employment, and ensuring a more manageable work-life balance!

    Good place to work. Good pool of resources. Knowledgeable colleagues. Overall ver good experience. Fair compensation level and growth oppotunities.

    Axon being a small company does not offer benefits of big company like IBM, SAP America. No office infrastructure in all cities.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, casual work environment,

    Cons

    No company-wide interest in developing people, air sucked out of company after HCL acquisition, company is too full of itself

    Advice to Management

    listen to the employees who do the actual work, don't just roll out initiatives that internal big wigs think are the right ones

    Pros

    Axon offered a better than average salary package before it was acquired by HCL. After 2012, things such as salary and policies started to change.

    Cons

    Management starts to let go the most experience employess and retain junior ones to save overhead expenses.

    Pros

    Great salary opportunity but you will need it to pay for and manage all your own expenses.

    Cons

    Major issue with employee expenses. HCL does an awful job with employee expenses and DOES NOT OFFER A CORPORATE CREDIT CARD!. Employees must pay for all expenses and then enter expenses into a really outdated system that has downtime - availability issues and the approval process is so cumbersome. Consultants are paid well but they have to be - because they must manage all hotel,meal and mileage etc expenses. Reimbursement deposits can take forever.

    Advice to Management

    OFFER EMPLOYEES CORPORATE EXPENSE ACCOUNTS.

    Pros

    Pays well for it's employees

    Cons

    If you want to build a career this is not a company for you. They don't have many SAP projects on hand. They try to push you around for a vacant position without looking at your skills or experience. You are better off working as an independent consultant than working for this company. Not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on Sales, invest on consultants training opportunities and provide right opportunities matching skill levels.
