    Work environment is good cooperative managers.
    Awesome balance of life and work

    Please don't play with peoples life how could you expect a software developer to be paid with same salary as almost watch mans really shame

    Pros

    Have to think a lot before saying no charges for food, but contagious food.

    Cons

    - Lazy HRs in HCL
    - HRs dont know what they are recruiting for, i have recruited for some support as they said it was into development.
    - eventhough I get into HCL after confusion, it was been lied to me that even after selection there will be elimination round.
    - google is the client which acts like a NASA employee, he is not even aware of the fact that people are not getting trained at all
    - Its not a job rather its a school

    - Viewers please enquire completely abt these kinda frauds and then if it fits your role only then join

    Advice to Management

    Plz be more transparent to employees before hiring, especially when the market is dry, it will be very hard for employees who get relocated from different places and you cant fire them just like that.

    Pros

    I worked for full time.
    Good environment and work culture.
    Helpful seniors and was able to learn many new things here.

    Cons

    No cons as such.
    Work load should be managed.
    salary should be based on the performance basis rather than just on a degree.

    Advice to Management

    nothing. Management is best just they need to manage the work given to various employees. Project should be divided accordingly.

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cab facility for a few projects.
    Opportunity to work at the client location.

    Cons

    No career growth.
    No development plans for employees.
    Great place for managers/leadership, not for individual contributors.
    Salary hikes are like peanuts.
    Director commits a salary revision based on the offer I got outside

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure the management knows everything that is going around, they just turn a blind-eye to impress the client.

    For instance, the entire team has complained against a Manager who was very rude and misbehaved with employees, the SPM did nothing, HR just laughed off and said don't expect something would happen in this case.

    When we asked why? The client likes this guy, so it's hard for us to take any action. I mean WOW! Just for the sake of client you're okay to make your employees go through this pain and suffering?
