The experience was alright

Business Development Manager (Former Employee)
Bedminster, NJ (US)

I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for less than a year

ProsLots of freedom. Top clients to work with. Leading edge IT.

ConsI was new to the IT space let alone the Sales organization. There was no structure around my on-boarding. In fact the first day I went into work, I was the only one in the office till about 10AM. The HR didn't have any idea that I was joining work.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave an on-boarding process and try to retain employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Full of opportunities but short on compensation package.

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Old Tappan, NJ (US)

I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time for less than a year

ProsGood learning opportunities and given good scope to display the capabilities.

ConsWork Life balance is not a word in their dictionary. You are expected to work day night. Even after doing good work , one can not expect to have promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more value to each resource and try to negotiate with the leaving employee in monetary terms as well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It was a definite learning experience

SAP Managing Consultant (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ (US)

I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSmart people, good compensation & benefits

ConsManagement was a revolving door and they expect way too much of their employees. No work/life balance. Once HCL acquired Axon, things went south.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet your people do their job and get out of their way. Don't get so caught up on internal processes that your people don't have time to take care of their clients.

Mostly positive, there did seem to be some management problems.

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ (US)

I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for more than a year

ProsLarge International company making inroads to the US market for ERP projects.

ConsAs I mentioned, there were some management problems. But what else is new!?

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to examine middle management from other than your primary perspective. See how things look to people underneath a middle manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Stay Away!

IT Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at HCL Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt's a Job. Better than being unemployed

ConsCompany is based in India. All processes are performed via e-mail and HR customer service portal. Things take long to get resolved. The ratio of manager to employees actually performing the work need to be reversed. I had to give mandatory 2 weeks notice before leaving, which meant they would owe me another week of pay. Have not received payment for my last week. seeking legal action to try to get paid.

Advice to Senior Management"Employees First" axiom is definitely not practiced in HCL America. You do get the impression that it is in India.
If company policies apply only to certain regions they should be made specifically clear.
Sensitivity training should also be given to Indian employees – so they can relate to American culture just as American employees are given sensitivity training to learn to relate to Indian employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Very unfair company to employees and customers. Even damaging to US by using unethical and illegal visa practices.

Sales Executive (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOne should think of working here for a month or two only in case there is no other respectable job available.

ConsCompany pays bonus / incentive only partially and that too after 6 months of closing the financial year provided the employee is on pay roll on the date of the payout. 95% of HCL sales people in US have been brought from India on H1B visa by declaring incorrect job descriptions to immigration. This is done to ensure that the salaries paid to sales executives are almost equal to the salaries of truck drivers in US. Even these sales executives working on truck drivers' salary are not paid their incetives at all or paid only partially.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot worth giving any advice

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Mixed bag of experiences
