    Pros

    I work with some of the best consultants around. Axon consultants tend to be the best in their field and very experienced. Expect good remuneration.

    Cons

    Uncertainty around how the culture might change after a takeover. Some concerns over how HCL / Infosys will errect the great culture at Axon.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the Axon culture.

    "Where Merit Rules"

    Pros

    Meritocracy - Fair Environment, Transparent Feedback Mechanisms.
    Responsibility - Higher responsibility to people willing to stretch themselves to get to the next level.
    Empowerment - Employee First is really about Empowering the interface with the customer... Amazing shift from companies which are focused on top down decision making.
    Growth - with some businesses in the company growing @ 15% - 20% CQGR, growth opportunities for any person willing to work hard for additional responsiblity and career growth is great.

    Cons

    If you are a person who needs to be constantly supervised and told what you need to do, this is not a company for you.
    If your focus is not career development, instead, you are looking for some quick wins in salary... you are probably better off with companies who make salary their only differentiator.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a stronger Middle Management.

    Pros

    The best thing about HCL is the entrepreneurial culture, freedom and flexibility to work in your style. Good audience with senior management and very friendly colleague. It's growing at a rapid pace and CEO has created a new management paradigm by putting his complete confidence in his employees. While lot still needs to be done but it's a company to look forward to.

    Cons

    Salary could be on lower side and may not be as competitive as others in the industry. High number of Indians in the work force tend to tilt the culture to more Indian company rather than multinational work culture, however they definitely have global outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about salary, promotions and visa related issues.
