I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Opportunity to learn about various technologies if job role is good.
Low work pressure.
More job security and have good work -life balance.

Cons

Freshers are treated just like goods, many are transferred to metro cities without giving them anything extra, with salary of as low as Rs.9000/month.
Even Network Engineers have to give desktop support like anti-virus installation at client locations.
Poor HR role in resource management matters a lot.

Advice to Management

More HR involvement and influence needed in HR matters.
Salary and other benefits should be based on job roles and location, specially when transferred.

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    big buildings, bright lights, shiny floors, colorful emails promoting employee first customer second...nothing in practice

    Cons

    -Mostly lousy support projects that gives very little value addition to your resume.
    -I lost the knowledge that i had since they put me into a production support job, and the job gave very little knowledge gain
    -Govt like hierarchy that requires approval for each and every stuff.
    -Good policies but never followed in real sense.
    -Highly secretive in firing employees so the news is not spread to the market
    -No proper structured appraisal system, just a dummy form and depends on the level of rappo that you build with your manager(s). Good work is not recognised but only saying 'Yes' to manager works

    Advice to Management

    Tall claims of employee first will work outside the company but the opinion of the employee is what that counts. No grassroots level implementation, just a big propaganda
