    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the rates aren't bad for full family coverage

    Cons

    Pay under industry average, no support between engagements, constant additional internal duties as an HCL employee, all about the money

    Advice to Management

    Your one and only focus is revenue. If you focused on your people more (at least on your North American division), payed them a better wage, and cut back on the internal HCL programs they a required to focus on, you would have happier, more engaged employees with a lower turnover rate. Your revenues would get much better.

    Tons of work to do so you stay busy and there are some good people to work with.

    Cons

    Not impressed with their ideas of "technology". You're busy fixing things that are broken. System limitations, red tape, poor communication, narrow mindsets and general disappointment at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know what they're doing and let them do their job. Put money into improving systems instead of always looking for the shortcut and saving money.

    Pros

    A job if you need one to meet your financial responsibilities. Otherwise "Enter at your own risk"

    Cons

    I became an employee of HCL when they took over the IT operations of the company I worked for, due to the company Outsourcing the entire IT department to HCL. I had to train my replacement but I was one of the few lucky ones who was offered an opportunity to remain with HCL. I stayed with them for a little over a year, but left because management was all over the place. There were too many managers and not enough people to actually perform the work. Also if you were not Indian or of Indian decent you were treated like a second class citizen and many times not even included in your own departmen's meetings. the non-Indian employees used to refer to the company as HCHell instead of HCL... that tells a lot...

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more responsive. I know they are based in India but responsiveness needs to improve. They also need to properly determine the undertaking of projects so that they can provide adequate levels of staff and support.
