    Pros

    This was a salary position, some others doing the same job are paid hourly so my experience with benefits may differ, but the benefits are great! They have every traditional benefit offered to a normal salaried employee. Managers were also very willing to allow staff to do additional trainings. They were also very accommodating and allowed me to work from home after I had a health issue and needed almost about a month long recovery period.

    Cons

    Company is so large, that most additional training or certifications are done within the company so you won't be able to take the certification with you when you leave. For instance, they have an internal ITIL 4 certification which I signed up for but it's not the regular ITIL certifications you'd get out in town or via a normal classroom. It's an internal HCL ITIL certification based off their own internal exam that you can pass. Also, raises and promotions take forever to get approved. They say they put in for raises and promotions, and allow you to take on the additional responsibilities while you wait, but the actual money and paperwork take a VERY long time to be approved. There are also a lot of new hire trainings which are almost worthless. They are meant to expose new hires to more of the larger HCL business as a whole, but it seems more like the executives patting themselves on the back than actually providing useful information to the new hires. Finally, I was hired during COVID so this is likely to change soon now that everyone is moving back into the office, but there isn't much of a friendly culture or any get-together's outside of work.
