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

    Pros

    There are some very good people and ideas here. The company knows how to change rapidly. They have clients all over the world, if you are interested in changing your geo.

    Cons

    Cronyism is rampant, management and company culture is to bleed the employee of dedication and hard work, and offer no compensation increases. Mid-level managers have no power to influence compensation decisions. Even if you get high marks, the HR decision-makers will not give you an increase. There are frequent HR and Payroll problems, and little or no support to get issues resolved.
    Management is incentivized to keep costs, and even vacation, sick and on-call pay to a minimum. There have been a few instances of employees who have had to report violations to the department of labor.

    Advice to Management

    Your product is skilled, motivated employees. Invest in their skills, give them increases so they will want to stay with you.

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Always many new projects and clients
    2. If you like to move every 6-9 months, you'll love this place
    3. If you are an Indian IIT grad and you write code, they'll love you
    4. Great place for Freshers (newly hired) because you'll be thrust into highly important roles early

    Cons

    1. VERY little management roles outside of India. 99% of the management and senior management roles are filled with Indian nationals living in the US.
    2. Anyone besides Indian males will be ignored for key positions
    3. If you don't write code, you should run and not walk
    4. Internal operational systems are really outdated
    5. Margin pressure is ridiculasly high...
    6. The consistency of the quality of the work of the offshore teams varies wildly from engagement to engagement..
    7. Clients are constantly oversold on HCL's capabilities... 25 yr olds are sold as "Sr. Architects",
    8. Bonus payments are seemingly derived from a game of darts played by someone in Noida.. no rhyme or reason
    9. Expect to work a regular shift from 9-6pm and then enjoy evenings from 9pm till midnight Sunday through Thursday

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your mid tier employees
