Pros

HCL provides Account Managers with a lot of freedom and autonomy. There is a lot of scope for new learning. Very aggressive sales organization.

Cons

In HCL it is difficult to maintain work life balance. Occasionally, it is very difficult to see clear vision and strategy emanating at Senior Management level.

Advice to Management

Need to articulate better the organization's vision and strategy communicate that effectively to employees. Senior Managers should maintain better CxO level connects.

    Pros

    If you are the kind of person who doesn't lay down deep roots, the opportunity for advancement at HCL is very great. Their health benefits are excellent, and most of the management offshore is competent to excellent. They are also very good, for the most part, about allowing people to work creative schedules, as long as the contract obligation gets fulfilled.

    Cons

    HCL does not provide a competetive amount of time off per year, and they continue to divide sick days from accrued vacation. Also, if you have a family, a house and a dog, HCL may not be the company for you because HCL is a company that reacts swiftly to changes in a contract environment, and people may find themselves moved to a contact on the other side of the country, or even in a completely different country with very little notice.

    Advice to Management

    More time off, please. These contract jobs can be very stressful, and allowing people to take more time with their families is very helpful in dealing with that stress. Also, I wish HCL was more up-front with transitioned workers so they could take more time to consider downsizing their lives in preparation for the almost certain transfer to a different city.
