SAP Consultant (Current Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 17, 2016
There are a lot of room for improvement. At the end of day the job needs to get done and that is what we do.

I have learned a lot about SAP EAM, IMRO and Consulting. Great group of guts and a pretty fun atmosphere. Very diverse group but we find a way to come together and succeed.

HCL was not my favorite place to work
senior software engineer (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILNovember 4, 2015
HCL is a contracting firm with most employees working in India. Their model is to seek out projects in the United States, put a few people on the work in the US and the majority of the developers in India. This model is exhausting for the US employees and in my opinion, doesn't work well. I had a terrible situation with a manager and my only recourse for my sanity was to quit. Though I was highly rated and had just gotten a good bonus, apparently the manager was valued more. I would never recommend anyone work at HCL.
Pros
decent salary, possible opportunities across the US
Cons
hierarchical management, short term contracts, they work you like dogs

Decent Company with few options for advancement
Sr. Defined Contributions Analyst (Former Employee) –  Cary, NCSeptember 30, 2015
HCL Technologies offered a highly stressful, intense work environment. Positive incentives communicated were not fulfilled and continuous payroll errors affected employee morale. Co-workers were personable. High management turnover and unmet client goals ultimately resulted in loss of contract.
Pros
Progressive skills and knowledge
Cons
Extensive overtime, Inefficient HR, Job Security
