    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.

    N o t h I n g

    Cons

    HCL pays more salary for unknown new comers from outside. Worst Salary and Recognition for existing employees.

    $60k or less for existing top performing employees, min $95k+ for unknown new comers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay MARKET STANDARD salary for knowledge and work the employee do for organization. Treat and respect to all the employees.

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people. Nearly impossible to get fired. Good starter job, not a career job, more like a stepping stone.

    Cons

    You experience will greatly differ depending on what project you work on. Pay is uncompetitive, going above and beyond and working hard is rewarded with, more work. If you work hard and and have exceptional attendance, you will meet the same rewards as someone that is the opposite. Favoritism and politics come into play a lot. It's all about numbers, so if you are tasked with a side project you won't hit your number and will be penalized for it. Meanwhile the guy that answers 40 calls a day but doesn't actually fix anything causing more calls in turn, will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Competitive pay, overpay the ones that actually have the skill and drive and they will be with your company a long time. Stop hiring people with customer skills experience and little to no technical experience. That only puts a strain on those who know what they are doing and disrupts them from doing their own work.

    Pros

    The Benefits are amazing and are reminisce of the early 1990's. There are many projects that offer the ability to move and learn something new.

    Cons

    The company has way too many independent tools that to not sync with each other. This is a huge lack of training on how to use any of the tools.

    Advice to Management

    Process tends to rule over logical thought, you need to think outside of the box and trust in your employees.
