    Negative Outlook

    I worked at HCL full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly environment, Nice team, fun events

    Cons

    Pay - once you join they almost never increase the pay. Even if they increase, the increase is like 1-2%. I interviewed for 1 role and they made me do way above my role and even after excelling the role & proved myself for 2yrs I got a hike of 1 percent of my pay. No cafeteria in Bellevue office. Daily Parking procedure is to provide the drivers license to the security in return to the daily Parking pass. Then place the pass on the dashboard of the car. And when leaving for the day we have to return the pass to the security and get the license back. Too much of time waste. And yes you cannot carry your bags to the work desk. They need to be placed in the locker outside the office.
