    Pros

    Got experience working on Microsoft websites which boosted my resume.

    Cons

    My first team was good and we had daily stand up (Skype) meetings. The project manager of my last team never had any meetings so it was difficult to communicate. We only communicated via email.

    Pros

    Job security may be comparatively high.

    No bond between company and management. Employee has to drive all his basic needs like documents, Visa extensions and everything that he need from company.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate hardworking employees and dont ignore just because they stay longer in your organization.

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Great team-members. Casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary depending upon the project you're assigned to. HCL is a large company, so it is incredibly easy to feel like you're just a number.

    • Their HR department is practically non-existent, and most normal channels that you'd expect to easily be able to access (Payroll Dept, Quality Assurance) are disjointed, and spread throughout. I suspect this evasiveness may be intended.

    • You will NOT receive a meaningful raise. Should you manage to be promoted, it may take an eternity to receive your compensation. Red tape seems to be woven into the very fabric of HCL.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify your processes. Pay your employees better. Consider making opportunities for growth *also* available to your American-born employees.

    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    HCL has good client especially if you in ERS department , work life balance is gud , you get to learn and implement latest technologies. Some folks in Senior Management are good , but due to Company Policies can't do much.

    Cons

    Salary Less , esp. in Bay Area survival is not enough esp when you have clients like google, cisco and citrix , they shud pay more to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to Employees problems
