    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Work with some nice and talented people, benefits are very affordable.

    Cons

    Management is in too many cases unqualified to be managers. Quality of service not as important as quantity. Not very family oriented or understanding, 2 weeks per year PTO to be used for vacation as well as sick. Good quality tech's always leaving and new unqualified techs always starting and leaving. Too many services handled overseas so cannot accomplish anything in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should keep moral up instead of down. Take care of your full time employees and there may not be as high turn-around and you may actually keep a reliable hardworking staff in place.
