It was a big learning experience
Member Technical Staff, Systems Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Chennai, Tamil Nadu – November 16, 2017
HCL Technologies, Shollinganalur, Chennai has a great working environment. It has flexible working hours as long as we maintained 9hrs or more.
I had the great honor of working in the Research and Development field with a good manager, who mentored me and taught me pretty much everything I know. I was the only girl and youngest in my team. I had to prove myself the first couple of months that I can take up challenging activities.
Once I had proved myself, I had a great opportunity of handling some critical design projects and a key role in the regulatory aspects of our medical device launch in various countries. I had to assess and perform reviews and co-ordinate across various cross-functionals such as Quality, Service, Regulatory, Marketing and the Design Owner. It was great to have such an exposure.
Learnt a great deal from my managers, was encouraged to handle challenging and major activities
I had to work very late hours, I wasn't asked to work late, but my work and activities required me to put in lots of hours.
