    I have been working at HCL Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    hmmmmmm....
    My work hours were flexible. But that is only because my boss was rebadged from the client as well so we had worked together before.
    When I was rebadged I got a two year employment guarantee, that was honored to many employees who were removed from the account before the two years were up.

    Cons

    All about the bottom line, despite what they say about employee first.
    If you are rebadged from a company to HCL as part of HCL getting them as a client your days are probably numbered, start looking. As soon as they can find offshore resources to do your job they will. They will most likely be less skilled, but cheaper and you will probably have to train your replacement, that is what I am doing now.
    Totally disorganized.
    In my experience they don't care about the client, they care about getting cheaper people to do the work so they can be more profitable.
    Not honest when you join.
    Offshore and onshore do not talk. In three years hardly involved in any team meetings. Even onshore boss had team meetings with offshore but did not involve onshore.
    Not much compensation in reviews.
    crappy HR, if you can find them.
    I could go on. More fool me for being lazy and not getting out sooner.... They are now replacing me with less skilled cheaper resources. I fear(know) the client will get a reduced service.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees.
    When you bid really low for a contract tell the rebadged employees that the overall goal is to make it more profitable by replacing expensive onshore resources.
    Get organized.
