    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to tech giants that actually appreciate talent.

    Cons

    Terrible salary, terrible management, terrible communication, terrible benefits. Vineet is just greedy. HCL will charge 100K+ to clients like microsoft and then turn around and give their employee 50% or less of that. Most of us have some fictional manager that never speaks to their underlings. probably b/c the manager is in India and we are in the states actually making money for the company. Want a raise? don't bother they tend to give out 1%. thats right 1%. if you break that down to an hourly rate its roughly 25 cents an hour. basically your no better than an over educated grocery cashier. On top of that you get to listen to Vineet's "weekend thoughts." Which in my opinion is nothing but garbage. dont get on board with this company. Nothing but spam e-mail from India's head quarters. Apparently everyone in India has a lot of free time to make colorful e-mails about nothing. Dont get me started on their employee portal. What a train wreck. A software development company that makes terrible software. Every Microsoft FTE I've spoken with feels that HCL is the worst of all vendor companies in terms of talent and pay. you know its bad when the client tells a vendor their underpaid. Their HQ is not in sunnyvale, thats just where they mail checks from. Not one person that represents HCL in America has one shred of power.

    Advice to Management

    They don't have managers the client manages you.

    Pros

    Life is cool if you dont look at money

    Cons

    Salary is not upto the market standards

    Advice to Management

    Salary need to be finalized based on skills and it should be more for hot skills and this cant be normalized as per industry standards for all other skills like Java, dotnet, etc.,
