    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on many programs. Good pay, benefits.

    Cons

    Not very good training. Hardly any communication, more time spent communicating with customer than with supervisor. Pretty much expect you to know everything without giving much room for learning.

    Advice to Management

    Better training.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have very few if any positive comments.

    Cons

    I wasn't valued enough to keep as an employee but was being asked to mentor and train co-workers; even asked to put together internal training as a Subject Matter Expert. Frequently was contacted by co-workers on other contracts to get help/advice in my area of expertise. I was hired to do Development but classified as a Software Tester to minimize the salary they would have to pay. When the contract ended I received my 2 weeks notice with no attempt to place me in other position because I my grade level was 'too low' and was not allowed to apply for jobs at a higher level. That was when I found out the 12+ months I had been working to get my career ladder corrected was a result of deliberate decisions made by HCL at my time of hire limiting my long term viability in the company.
