It's a decent place to work
Network Operations Engineer (Former Employee) –  Noida, Uttar PradeshDecember 22, 2018
Typical day at work is not very hectic.

Workplace culture is decent.

I learnt to work with clients, understand business requirements and work on them.

Management is fine.

Hardest part is doing same kind of job everyday which reduces potential of improving on other skills or new learnings.

People working along make it enjoyable.
Pros
Work Life Balance
Cons
Work is not so great for freshers, not much to learn

Good place for work /life management
Member Technical Staff (Current Employee) –  Jigani, KarnatakaAugust 11, 2018
No new things to learn if you are worked in OEM’s before. Lots of procedures and micromanagement. No work pressure.

Management is not so bad, but don’t ask them good increments. They are very much concerned about the billing. Rating depends on how good are you with your project managers.(no value for your reporting managers opinion in many cases)

Annual bonus mentioned in the CTC is dependent on the rating. If you get R1 ,100% of the mentioned amount. R2 -90% , R3- 50%, R4- 30% of the mentioned amount. Increment too will be applicable on the rating. R1, R2 will have immediate effect. R3 wil be from 3rd quarter and R4 will be from 4th quarter.
**Max 1 or 2 people will get R1 & R2 in the team**.

Team outings will not be funded by company. Quarterly 500 INR will be given per employee as team budget. You should not expect any extra things apart from your salary.
Pros
No work pressure, work life management is good. Nice campus, flexible timing in some projects .
Cons
Increment will be too low. No extra monetary benefits.

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Sector 126 NoidaNovember 8, 2018
If you are starting a job with HCL make sure you join with a very good package as appraisals at HCL suck big time. The work culture is pretty good. You will get a perfect work life balance in HCL.
Pros
Job Security, Work life balance.
Cons
Comparatively less salary when compared to other big MNC's.

Company is Ok as a Fresher
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chennai, Tamil NaduNovember 9, 2018
As a fresher company is ok to work, Job and Culture is Good . But same coming to salary is really poor and in Appraisal is very very poor. Work life balance is good only if your working in your Home town HCL branch Strictly not for Bachelors. Best advice to the people who looking for HCL don't commit more than 2 Year if u need better work culture and better salary move to Other Organization.

anagement expect you to work 2/3 hours over your regular hours everyday and are not even grateful for it. Very high staff turnover. No investment in developing staff. No progression what so ever. Management are too negative. Salary is very basic and not so great compared to rival companies. Glad i left and got a job at a firm where they value you more.

Run off the mill service cmpany
Lead Engineer (Former Employee) –  Uttar PradeshAugust 12, 2018
Depending on what project you get to get work on, HCL can be a great work experience to a slow and stagnant career opportunity. Some projects can help you really sharpen your skills others can be quite dull. But you will get enough opportunity to climb up the ladder. Great work life balance if you get any of the management roles. Low salary.

Senior Computer System Validation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chennai, Tamil NaduJune 20, 2018
HCL is a good company to work with . The only issue I had is with salary as it’s not justified. And there is no straight promotion procedures as if you know the management well then only you can grow more.

The above description is something which I experienced as it can be wrong for someone else.
Pros
Work life balance is easy.
Cons
Less salary and keeps employees on bench for longer time which is frustrating sometimes

HCL Review
IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  Noida, Uttar PradeshNovember 1, 2018
The company was good to work.
I have learned a lot as I was working on the project of National Govt.
Higher Management was good and supportive.
Workplace culture totally depends on the site manager. My experience was not so good but I am sure about the other sites where people were happy with the management style.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the challenges what we were getting on a daily basis.
Pros
Good exposure
Cons
variable pay and its rules
