    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Some good people, but not many and when you find one you keep them!

    Cons

    Nothing can get done internally, even the simplest thing requires more layers of approval, and meaningless red tape than ever seen before. Management do not meet there OWN deadlines, but you dare be a minute past yours.... Like producing and enforcing rules that just make the company run less smoothly. Left hand, right had syndrome. Neither as a clue what the other says of does.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you want redundancy then this is the place for you. Good opportunity to detail & document knowledge, skills and procedures to empower Indian workers

    Cons

    If you're not Indian, are paid a fair salary and aren't of pensionable age you will lose your job. Only young workers & those that are cheaper to keep than pay redundancy to will be kept on. The management are faceless & hire UK contractors to tell the workers they are redundant. They then impending redundant workers to train their exploited Indian counterparts how to do their job. TUPED over from Unilever who didn't have the balls to sack UK staff due to bad publicity. Got given redundancy on the same day of TUPE 1st April. Sick joke.
