Good company to settle down

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
No pressure. We do what is required to do. We do get appreciated for the work we do. it all depends on good team and the type of manager we work with. Although the hikes are very less and there is no much growth in career/financially.

Relaxed work

Place is good for work but salary is very low. Work is slow paced. You can interact with the client and have good exposure. Currently it is having hybrid workplace.

There is partiality in employee

Some employees will not get all the facilities as per company it's depends on mangers, which worst thing in the HCL. No work from home for freshers or new joiners


Free cab for who work in shift. This only one pro as of me


Micro management, partiality

Worst management

Worst Management. No salary hike. Unable to switch between projects.The management will support your resignation but won't support you in lateral movement to other projects.

Choose only if you need work life balance

Good company to work. Less salary hikes. Not much exciting work (in my case). I don't like HR policies. Consider this option as last priority. Good infrastructure. Nice work environment.

Productive and fun work place.

Excellent company and very supportive to employees but salaries and hikes very less remaining all are very good. I love HCL technologies Ltd and I suggest to HCl please give salaries based on work efforts and skills experts.

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.




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