Job security

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Ok for settling long term. Nothing more to tell about it. Nothing to expect more. Onsite will be only if there is a requirement, not like the other few service companies where they will move projects merely for sending employees to onsite.

Pros

Job security

Cons

No perks at all, even a penny you have to pay from your pocket.

Good company for a 9-5 job. Do not expect good appraisals..

Good company for a 9-5 job. Do not expect good appraisals. As it is a service based company, tasks are done on a slow pace. So if you are someone who wants no chaos in life, sit back and do your daily tasks slowly, then you may join.

Mixed Reviews

I would recommend to join HCL when you don't have any other offer in hand. Not a very good option to start your career with. It's a retirement company for sure.

Pros

Job Security Flexibility in having shift timings Reimbursement policy is good Transport is available

Cons

Work from home usually not promoted, No hikes and promotions, Micro Management, Work environment is usually, monotonous, Less learning opportunities, No transparency, Stagnancy in career

Boring and Dominating management and senior people

The people who are in senior position are dominating and not providing the proper training their newly joined juniors. The management and HR people are like deaf. They don't even listen to our words and request, they just feel themselves as God who is providing jobs to the needy people. So, they can only order the candidates and neglects the requests from candidates. Not even responsive. Worst management and HR crews.

Pros

Nothing. Might be depends on team and team members.

Cons

Stressful job environment, Dominating management, No Work life balance, Not responsive HR people, Lesser pay than the market, No proper training from the team, Long working hours.

Very poor planning and task allocation by managers.

Had the most strenuous work environment. Have to stretch and work every day to meet the deadlines.I learned a lot of lessons though how much planning, training, teamwork, and work allocation are important as nothing was right there.The work culture is very very poor the personal life of employees their health nothing is given importance. Project deadlines are very tight.The gravity of the work, individual's capacity, team's capacity nothing is accessed or planned by the management before taking up the project or giving commitment.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Strenuous work environment poor planning improper work allocation No work-life balance

Good learning but hikes were minimal

Always work culture depends on team. Luckily I am on to a good team and learned a lot.Variable component paid is 80% for an average performer.Average yearly hike for an average performer is 4-6%.

Pros

Brand and job security

Cons

Minimal hikes

Worst company to work for, Unethically forcing employees to return bonuses (i.e. 25%) at end of employment tenure for that particular financial year

HCL Technologies unethically recover the already paid bonus (i.e., AMPB & EPB) when you leave the company. For me it was 25% of my CTC.As per my experience, HCL Technologies is not at all an employee first company which they claim.Not at all Great place to work for, which they claim.Extremely poor HR policies. Extremely poor strategy for employee's growth.Can't even beat the inflation rate (approx. 6%) with their compensation hike (average 2-6%) irrespective of performance rating.

Pros

Good team culture, Free transport available, Cafeteria and basic amenities are available

Cons

Extremely poor HR policies, Bonus amount varies between 20-30% of CTC, they recover paid bonus at end of employment tenure, Not at all employee first company, Very poor compensation and compensation hike (average 2%-6%), Very poor management, Favouritism takes place beyond your imagination, Very poor employee skill growth strategy

Productive and funful work place. Currently giving WFH

currently giving WFH for all employees except some critical process. Good platform for freshers to start up. Check the CTC and compare it. If you don't get expected hike try for better opportunity.
