    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Provides Flexible working environment, reasonably flat hierarchy, many options to excel, can get recognised for good work and within customer facing functions can help add value.

    Cons

    bit bureaucratic at times as with any other large company. Too many meetings due to layers of management that many a times does not add value. Do not follow the 2 pizza model to make it effective

    Advice to Management

    Get the layers of management to work on future vision, create new ideas/execute rather than focusing only on operational reviews. Make these parameters which determine future value creation as their KPI and not revenue/margin alone.
