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

    Pros

    It's marginally better than not being in a job.

    Cons

    Management don't listen to the people who actually do the work. If you aren't Indian, look for work elsewhere. Company policy is to get rid of non-Indians and replace them with people shipped over. There is no chance of advancement unless your senior management like you. they will only like you if you say yes to everything. Good work is not rewarded unless you are in India. An idea will earn you up to 10 days pay in India but £20 in the UK regardless of how much money you can save the company. Company tagline is Employees first. I have never seen an employee put first.
