    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at HCL Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hard working, fast paced environment
    Opportunity to travel (mostly out of your own pocket, of course)

    Cons

    Not concerned what so ever with making sure paychecks are received
    If you are unfortunate enough to be a sub-contractor to HCL, you are lower than dirt
    Only supplying one tech to a contract that obviously needs more

    Advice to Management

    Quit making issues overly complicated, just resolve them
    Quit passing blame
    Actually look out for the lower level tech

    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 a year)

    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.

  9. "SR. Technical Specialist"

    Former Employee - Senior Technical Specialist in Naperville, IL
    Former Employee - Senior Technical Specialist in Naperville, IL

    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
