    I worked at HCL Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    Looks after employees. They policy of treating employees better than they treat customers is great. This is why the employee love working for them.

    Cons

    Works at a snails pace. Sometime things get thrown into bureaucratic stages and take long time to be sorted.

    Advice to Management

    When you come up with a plan to implement something follow it through to its logical conclusion instead of leaving it half way.

    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.
