    I worked at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I took it as an interim job. Then I kept getting interesting, challenging roles that I had to overcome. However, I had no contact with other HCL employees except for those I directly worked with.

    Cons

    Internal Human Resources at HCL is really bad. If you will need HR help on anything, forget it.
    Review system is a joke.
    Skills testing is worse than useless. You review the materials and the assessment is on another topic or actually has errors in the test itself.
    You get spammed within the internal MyHCL email system. It's so bad you end up deleting important mail trying to keep it clear.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the Spam! Fix the system that lets you update your skill set.
