    Pros

    If you have friends in VP level you get to travel a lot, you don't need to be good at what you do to move ahead

    Cons

    The company claims to be employee first and have work life balance, two big jokes. In first quarter of 2015 more people I know left than I have ever seen in any other company, including VPs. It's all about margins, processes are created to ensure someone in the approval processes reject employee expenses, or bonuses to save a few bucks.

  3. It's a great company to work with. I was working as a Senior Software Engineer in HCL.

    Pros

    hard working software engineers from india.Some people in company are good at technical skills.

    Cons

    worst company ever to work

    1.Managers look their sub-ordinates as slaves.There is no professionalism in the company.

    2.If your manager likes you then you will be at good position.There is no proper recognition for any work you do in the company.More of biased company to certain individuals.Managers are very
    dishonest. They will lie to you while your joining on company benefits.

    3.Company expected you to work all hours in a day including weekends at short notice and will not take into account their employees obligations outside of work .They don't pay you anything for extra hours.They bring cheap labour from india and make them to stretch for more hours and expect those recruited in USA also to work same hours without extra hour payments or perks.you cannot question your manager or Management.

    4.Their insurance plans are worst in IT industry.The upper management never listens to the concerns of workers on any benefits to workers.Though many people are fighting to change the insurance plans they never bother as they provide cheap plans.

    5.Lack of job security.Though your full time employee your job is never secured.

    6.They don't have any notice period for employee termination or 15 day notice concept.It just on paper.They send people from india immediately next day your project completes.Its same with full time employees in USA.They give termination once their work is done with them.

    7.Thier internal immigration service is worst and they have worst record in Green card process for any non - american workers.

    8. No support to employees on any issues faced by them with internal applications in USA.everything you need to go for your manager or should wait to get a reply from india for 2-3 days on any questions or SSD.

    9. Once your joined your growth stops in USA.No promotions or salary increase.Max salary increase you get is 3%.That to if your manager likes you.

    10.They say employee first...but in reality its employee last.Managers will not allow employees to interact much with customer and they try to showcase more what their peers do as themselves.

    No Bonus and no increment and your salary might decrease if your location is changed.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees well.Learn to treat them as humans not as slaves.
    Stop biased way.Make people to speak in english in organization culture.
    Give equivalent benefits as other companies .

  9. Nice place to work with. One can learn a lot technically if get a good exposure.
