    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Accelerated career progression if you play your cards right. I have seen people rise up the ranks like shooting stars, and there is not much getting in your way if you know how and where to do it.

    Cons

    The lower and middle management is bloated, the billing rates are atrocious, and the profitability is not up to the mark. Most of the lower management sink their teeth into the "onsite" job even though there is really no need for it; profits nosedived as a result, and the effects trickle down to the actual "employees"

    Advice to Management

    If you could shear that mid-level management to manageable proportions, it would be a boon to everybody in the company.

    Mis-management

    Advice to Management

    Follow EFCS by heart...It is not permeated to lower/mid management

    Pros

    Flexible timings, some projects will have good work.
    Some senior management have really good skills .

    Cons

    HCL has a very clustered management hierarchy with too many managers in a project. Everyone wants to be a hot shot but observed very poor communication skills with high amount of ego.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure better recruitment not just people with bare minimum skills
    Remove the clustered management structure where technical managers are hte masters. More importance should be given to business MBA grads.

    Pros

    Good joining pay structure
    Flexibility with time sheet

    Cons

    Hikes are a big zero
    If you happen to be in a profitable project, you will enjoy the benefits, else management won't care about your appraisals
    Not easy to switch to different projects.
    Onsite positions are occupied mostly by senior resources through lobbying.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all lower job band employees based on their individual performance and not based on whether their project is doing well.
