    Pros

    Good people, ok location - office space not so much. Friendly staff

    Cons

    Management have no idea of how to run the business - MDs are too focused on just making money rather than investing in their people. Rather than look at how the operations of the company can improve, they simply cut head count to safe costs. Heads of dept. are never listened to and go unheard.

    Pros

    With healthcare recruitment being one of the toughest at present with changes in then NHS, HCL has not cut corners and followed their values at all times. This is all that's needed for a secure position in the temporary staffing market in healthcare.

    Cons

    All recruitment consultants look for good commission - HCL's commissions aren't the best around.

    Advice to Management

    Be steady and keep sticking to your values which is HCL's best selling point.

    I worked at HCL Workforce Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am sorry but I cannot remember anything positive rather than a good people I met there, and who unfortunately stayed even shorter time than me.

    Cons

    What a messy place, very high staff turnover- speaks for itself about company values and how they treat their workforce. We didn't get our bonus for 8 months for no reason. I got mine once just before leaving, they were just saving money on us. There was no unity or ethics- everyone came from different agencies and worked against each other. I came to a desk of 8 people and had to replace every single one team member.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for you to stop behaving cowardly and start appreciating people's work instead of talking behind back. Please recruit people managers rather than those who have no people's focus or interest in humanities. Change top management as this attitude is coming from the top down. Hope it has improved but back in 2013 it was exactly like this.

    Pros

    great team, kitchen, clean bathroom with showers

    Cons

    Blind management, they only bark their orders from behind computers. No involvement with the consultants, no building relations, no transparency, no commission on time - always wrong.
    You can't progress unless the manager is your friend or you know him/her for a long time. During cuts only management's friends managed to keep their jobs. Brown nose culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved, smile, be brave, assume your mistakes and invest in your people.

    I worked at HCL Workforce Solutions full-time

    Pros

    I had a great few years at HCL. Really there is great career development, nice working environment and they value employees for sure. Great benefits offered and incentives like days out, prizes etc. I actually was promoted many times whilst I was there. People on this site are complaining about redundancies but what to do? That is the nature of the beast and occurs in most large companies.

    Cons

    During the end of my time at HCL, a lot of the management left.

    Advice to Management

    Use the same methods as the old management.

    Location, working hours, kitchen, shower, no others comes to mind.

    Cons

    Managers couldn't really make any decisions. All comes form the boards, and so many cuts.
