Don't work for this company if you have option
Sr. Specialist / APM Administrator (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXJuly 13, 2018
This is an Indian Consultant company and they did not care about your career. All they want is less staffs and more works. You won't have any support to expand your career path.

low pay unless in sales
Senior Solution Architect / Engagement Manager (Current Employee) –  Suwanee, GAJuly 12, 2018
HCL is a large company, and my experience may not be yours.

Sales teams seem to be paid well. The development teams are not. There is competition that pushes rates down, and the company is under pressure to reduce costs. Most of the costs are the employee salaries, so no wonder HCL is not a pay master, far from it actually.

HCL is a great place to gain experience, but not a good place to stay long-term. Great exposure to different companies practices and how they do their day to day business.

Senior Technical Manager & Solution Architect (Current Employee) –  Brown County, WIJune 26, 2018

SCOM Admin (Former Employee) –  Redmond, WAJune 18, 2018
Good people to work with, policies are/were a little off. Compensation was not explained thoroughly to avoid any confusion. Sometimes had to "Fight" a little to get what was promised.

Client oriented only. Employees don't matter.
Database Administrator (Former Employee) –  Cary, NCJune 12, 2018
All for the client and under cutting the other companies submitting proposals for the contracts at the cost of the employees and productivity. Took three months for the database administration (DBA) team to receive a second laptop for on-call duties, which caused the lone DBA who admitted he knew both Oracle and SQL Server databases to pull three months of on-call duties, while the rest of the eight-member team went home at 5:00 with no worries...all because of cutting costs in order to win the contract over HP, IBM, etc. HCL lawyers admitted HP and IBM had also submitted proposals for this contract.
Pros
They exist.
Cons
Tight wads.

Great place to build Experience.
Desktop Support Technician (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJune 12, 2018
Great place to build experience if you have none. Almost anyone will get hired with minimum skillset - however that reflects in the pay. Do not expect Increases in Pay with a Promotion - as that is not how "Process" works with them.
Pros
Opportunity for advancement
Cons
No compensation

Interested only in globalizing the US jobs to India
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILJune 12, 2018
During the interview process, HCL presented the story of building a strong and engaged US team that would lead the US industry. All the while they had constructed a globalization plan to move the US jobs to India within a year. They were not a honest company. The HR department was the worse. They were very lazy and did not return phone calls or emails.
Pros
None
Cons
HCL was only interested in globalizing the US jobs, the management team and HR did not communicate well with their employees.
