    Overall it was good. Though the peers support was great, managers always try to suppress your work.

    Cons

    Growth is challenging especially when you are far off from the boss especially onsite. You will have a good customer satisfaction, but the offshore immediate management does not get it.

    Pros

    Nice work life balance. The boss doesn't push you very much and people are mostly friendly.

    Cons

    Great opportunity to start with but didn't end up going well. There's no career path or options for you. They tend to underpay people without much experience. The human resource partners are terribly bad, not supportive or helpful at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value people with great potential and make sure the employees get a chance to develop and utilize their skills.

    I worked at HCL Technologies as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I met some very talented and extremely bright people at HCL Technologies. Working there offered a tremendous
    opportunity to work with various infrastructure tecnologies.

    Cons

    There was not always an appreciation of the contributions of American counterparts knowledge and expertise by those coming to the states for the first time. On occasion there would be great differences of opinions on how a particular task should undertaken, and this would cause serious accusations and disagreements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Initiate some type of cultural training for those new to the United States to assist them in how certain environments work. Some managers need respect the women who are assigned to their teams.
    here. Extreme micro-management is not the way to gain the greatest cooperation.
