Great place to start your career

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was a contractor for HCL for 9 months, then I was converted to FTE with benefits and finally I was employed by their customer. I liked the job culture in HCL, I liked the work life balance they promote, the constant innovation and the encouraging of employees to participate or proposed new ideas. Unfortunately, I was assigned as a contractor for one of their customers and in my position I did not see any way to advance in my career, and payment was extremely low. I loved the free training opportunities that HCL gave me and their well-being program. I would have stayed at HCL kid they would have shown any interest in me, but when I resigned my position they just congratulated me and that was it. There were not any plans for me beyond cover a contractor position for a customer of them. If you want a nice place to start, HCL could be it, but thinking on the future, it would probably depend on what position you work for them, maybe software developers could have more opportunities to grow there.

Imbalanced work life balance

While every workplace has its challenges, my negative experience at HCL Tech was characterized by a combination of these factors, creating an environment that failed to foster a sense of belonging and professional fulfillment. It serves as a reminder that organizational success is not solely measured by financial achievements but also by the satisfaction and growth of its workforce.

Maybe ideal for someone right out of college

Not ideal for seasoned professionals; as, if you’re not employed at HCL headquarters and a ‘favorite’, you will likely run out of runway. Maybe ok for someone wanting to cut their teeth right after college.

NOT recommended. HR is not visible and they do not support PWD

HR is not visible and very hard to be contacted. They reply after 15 days most of the time never, regardless if ur TL is cc'd on the email, your TL will not help you put a follow-up. Most of the time clinic nurse is not available, been employed more than 8 months I still dont have my HMO card, It is just a front that they care PWD but truth is, they dont, had multiple sessions for counseling wherin the management hss gravely affected my mental health.

Your mileage may vary

Your experience here will depend entirely on the project you are assigned to. Beyond that, you will notice a serious lack of transparency. They claim to have an employee-first attitude but the evidence is slim.

Analysis of data

Analysis of data gathered from various departments and creating a interactive dashboard for visualization and decision making. The best part is the work environment

Unskilled, and pretentious people

Everyone there is full of themselves, to where huge mistakes came straight from superiors who had no business being in an IT position with no skills. They run call centers disguised as IT departments, and will take in any person who can open Microsoft Word on their own. Subject Matter Experts are usually less-informed than the people working beneath them, and get upset if you point out that they're wrong about something instead of helping find a different fix for an issue. HCL is a scummy company to work for, and will fire you because someone else berated you over the phone. Office politics run rampant in HCL as well, and keeping to yourself seems to be more difficult than its worth.




Egotistical management, Unskilled trainers, office politics

Easy, slow paced

Enjoy job. Not too busy with down time. Management seems to appreciate you and does micromanage you. Small team, so sometimes you can not take off when you want

Productive and Fun

Good company and give freedom to implement your ideas. Friendly environment, Management is good and always supportive. Salary hike depends on your performance but compare to others is low hike.

They do not care at all about employees.

As the title says. They do not care about employees and will screw you over any chance they get. There are so many different accounts you can be on so just hope you get on the correct one.

Not employee friendly

Not ready to support the employee in any way. Some of the clients are very much against immigration and don't even acknowledge that they have contract employees.
