    Pros

    They just try to get people on-board and then don't give them job, so no pros of course

    Cons

    I was promised to be placed on some role, I was going there at there Redmond office on 148th ave and then after 15 days they ditched me, I wasted my time and Money. I had a very bad experience in those 15 days! I felt like I am punished sitting in there office. They promised to give guidance, training and placement. Nothing happened as they promised. Sincere request to please stop this culture, and treat people bad!

    After All this episode I got a decent job in microsoft for next 6 years through other very good placement company. So a Big NO to HCL XXXXXX!!!

    You get a decent Health package and the 401k matching is nice. There are plenty of online resources available for eLearning and advancing your own skills.

    Getting assistance from peers and senior management on unclear tasks is often difficult.

    Often placed on a new project that may or may not have anything to do with what you were originally hired for.

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

    Pros

    Provides great learning opportunities and insights into different clients' work cultures.
    Flexibility to move between teams and projects.
    Builds great consulting experience for a fresher/experienced developer.

    Cons

    Compensation is okay, not great at all.
    Management is very old fashioned and has tendency to micro-manage one's in and out time, irrespective of the quality of work being turned in.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality of work rather than micromanaging an individual,
    Do not overlook extra time put in by an individual to get work done in tight deadlines.
    Put lesser focus on enforcing learning and other process oriented trainings/documents related to the company but totally unrelated to the consultant's everyday work.

    Pros

    None, I am not even exaggerating

    Cons

    This is the worst company I have ever worked for. They hate you if you are not Indian and give you dirty looks all the time. There is ZERO communication and nobody knows what they are supposed to be doing. They provide ZERO help to anyone and yell at you and treat you like your stupid if you ask. They give you no assignments or training and then yell at you for not doing work. It is truly an alternative universe to work there. I would avoid it at all costs. Everyone there says they hate their job, but need to keep it for their H1B visas. 95% of the company is H1B visas, so if you are not Indian, you will not be welcome there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    Pros

    There are no pro's for HCL.

    Cons

    Largest importer of H1B visa scum in the USA. Haters of all American native workers. No communication or leadership skills. Management appears to be nothing more then a ra-ra club. Constant pressure applied to employees to push worthless, unsolicited and unneeded programs on the customer. HCL only exists because it bought it's way in, swindled, lied or cheated to gain contracts in Redmond.

    Advice to Management

    Commit suicide.
