    Pros

    Great benefits, Great people to work with, a real just show up and keep your job.

    Cons

    Management cannot maintain a schedule, HR cases get poorly handled, overtime is 1/2 pay and not time and a 1/2. They hold a promotion over your head and make you do the work for promises they do not keep.

    Advice to Management

    Treat service desk as a service desk and not like a call center.

    Pros

    As long as you do your required work and meet your deadlines, you will have no problems here. Leadership opportunities are available if you show that you have what it takes. Company works in developing a good relationship with their clients, but this may depend on the customer and manager you work for.

    Cons

    No more than 2 weeks vacation and 2 floating holidays is ever given. No sick days. Employee web site is very fragmented, leading to lots of confusion in finding HR information, or in performing online training. If you request leave without pay you may forfeit bonuses. Raises are small.

    Advice to Management

    Increase benefits by providing higher 401k matching. Increase vacation to 3 weeks after 5 years employment, 4 weeks for 10 years to match up with company standards. Provide for some six leave.

    Pros

    Since I was working under an Alcatel-Lucent extended contract, working at HCL was seamless. Except for the benefits package, we retained our managers and all the same processes to access customers to support their wireless networks.

    Cons

    HCL is basically a very large consulting firm. So their day to day operations were filled with lots of emails about keeping your timesheet updated, filling out web page info for days off and waiting for it to be approved, running software on your computer so they could see if you were running unacceptable programs, etc. Their verbiage used was difficult to understand because they are basd out of India.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be reduced as professionals don't require as many mangers as there were. Too many managers didn't know what was really required since this is based out of India, too much confusion
