It is a growing organization and has multiple mechanical engineering projects currently. Many of the team size grow rapidly based on the skilled top management. Top management and sales team gets more benefits here in HCL.

Dislikes

Work culture is too bad and experienced so many mind games and politics from the team mates. Earlier during 2010 to 2013 the company culture was good. We will receive more appreciations and rewards for our good work. But later this rewards and recognition got reduced and they will share a print out for a reward rather than a certificate. The project I was working was a new client and I was referred by few of my ex-colleague. But they played too many mind games and influenced other team mates to follow the same. Later I raised a complaint regarding this to my project manager and then it gradually reduced. I have been warned not to join HCL before joining from my previous employer. But I made a wrong decision joining here. After that I got transferred to a new project due to some personal reasons and there it was even worst. The current project I'm is in client location and even my manager just does the same job as like me. Here mostly the managers are the people who are very close to the project managers here and they just have to follow what project managers says. Managers here don't have people management work but they get involved only in appraisals and leaves. They don't even know or show interest on what you are working or on your strengths to place you in right project. For these managers only billing is important and they don't bother what kind of work you do. My manager instructs me to be online all the time not to miss a single ping from client or we may lose you. Since I'm in a client location I cannot ask for a better work for me as they treat me as just a resource and not like what I'm capable of. I have around 11 years of product design and development experience. But because of this company I have been placed in a project where they actually don't need such a experienced person and can be done by a 2 year or even freshers. But my total experienced got wasted here and I almost forgot all my past learnings....Read More

Too bad for a mid level experienced. Enquire properly before joining the roles & responsibilities from your close circle. Because hr or the interviewer won't reveal the exact work nature. I was told that it is a npd work but what I was is into

Hcl is avery good organization,But the middle management is shit. You wil get career growth if you joined in internal projects.If it is a service-based project (external project from other vendors ) my request is please don't join.Because you will end being nothing.Most of the product developement companies give the documentation and less important works to these kind of service companies.If you joined here you will get deployed these mokka(scrap) works.These companies uses their own tools for product development and you will be forced to work on these tools .In effect after two or three years you will use only those tools and your skills won't get updated as per the market level.When you come out of the organisation your market value will be nothing.If you ask for different role what they does is they will deploy in some other project where you will have to use some other mokka tools.Yes there are exceptions but it depends on your luck.99% of the people who joined in external project suffers.Client will treat you like a begger .They toss away all the scrap works to you and they will do the intresting work. Yes they offers a very good learning platform like isuccess learning but those courses are worst. I have gone through lot of them most of them are useless.Regarding the hike,there isn't even a hike There are 4 quarterly reviews to capture how good you performed in each quarter but it's just a fake game.Everyone in hcl gets almost same hike(usually 6-15%) I joined around 2019 with a fresher salary of 2.5LPA,Then got deployed to these scrap work .Somehow i got lucky .I influenced one of my customers they gave me some important work.Then i learnt and i left .But people who joined along with me are still there struggling to get exposure to market demanding skills.They are stuck and they are not getting any offers in thier hand.I left the organisation with a ctc of 2.6 LPA ie i got a hike of 10k for two years.my request to you is please investigate well and join Hcl...Read More

Why not paying your employees good!? .Stop overloading them they have families too.Don't eat their own money.Also are you people aware of the fact that how difficult it is to get approval for a claim!?? I bought a ups and tried to claim the bill two times.But it got revert back again and again then i stop tried claiming.if I ask about something to the manager he will ask me to check with hr and if i ask to hr he will ask me to check with manager.Most of the HRs doesn't know the policies.Lastly stop pushing employees to learn the skills they don't like.Most of courses in the portal are waste.I spend hours of time in completing them but final result is nothing.Please take care this point.I know Hcl is a very good organization.but the middle management is worst.kindly appoint some humans with heart(not stone). Hcl need some managers who knows their employees.Also stop hanging around every company as cringe. Hcl has enough potential and employee strength to make their own products.Pleaese consider these points do the needful immediately otherwise HCL will keep on loosing talents....Read More

Only good thing is you will get salary on time every end of the month. Sometimes you will feel like security of the job. Keep deducting insurance premiums from your salary, before join HCL first read all section in offer letter because there is AMPB - Annual Monthly Performance Bobus they do include your fixed salary and theyprovide every monthly include in fixed monthly/yearly the problems is when you resign this company they will deduct that amount from your FNF amount and will hold your salary until all due cleared, supposed your monthly AMPB is Rs.8000 then multiply into LWD of the month then it will be total amount, AMPB start every year from April to March. They offer during job like they give offer for enrollment for academy learning and before you enroll you have to sign Service Agreement for 2 years and you can not leave the company with service agreement and you wish to leave then you have to pay back 2 lakhs. They have two/three/six months of the notice and option for buyout if you with to not serve notice period but Manager's never approve/allowed and until your manager does not leave from the project and compnay HR will not help on anything. No night allowance given in HCL They can give any project roll no matter what profile is yours it depends on project availability they can give Service Desk work for on-call support. Manager's allways harassing their people mostly the manager came from Service Desk Management Salary - forget about that you will get hike every year , they do nothing increases, There is called quarterly performance review , they will give allways good rating all quarter but at the end of year like annual review they will mark down your review with out having any reason. I will simply say do not join this company if you have wish to grow otherwise here all your wished and ambition will stop. ...Read More

This is one of the worst company I have ever worked. This company won't even give your salary in Full rather they will explain the policies instead. I never recommend anyone to join this organization

Dislikes

1. EMPLOYEES FIRST is JUST for Name sake 2. Policies are only on Paper No one cares Even if you escalate to head of the Department or HR 3. Worst Hr I came across in this organization. 4. EPB( EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE BONUS) you forget about this component. You won't get it while working in a billable project. If you resign they will recover your Epb from your salary. 5. Don't be foolish open your mind and analyze why people are saying so 6. There is nothing positivity you find in this organization. Not even salary you get in full When you raise your voice they will explain policies rather raising salary 7. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO WORK IN SHIFTS NO MANAGER WILL UPDATE YOUR SHIFT TIMINGS IN SMM( SHIFT MANAGEMENT MODULE) AS A RESULT YOU ARE NOT PROVIDED SHIFT ALLOWANCE 8. When it comes to Deduction they will Deduct ruthlessly When it comes to give they will explain polices. 9. FROM 2 YEARS THERE IS NO SALARY HIKE 10. COMPANY IS GROWING IN EVER QUARTER WITH THE EFFORTS OF EMPLOYEES BUT EMPLOYEES SALARY IS NOT 11. DON'T FALL FOR THE TRAP. STAY AWAY FROM HCL 12. THERE IS NOTHING TO SAY EMPLOYEES ARE BENEFITED BY THIS IN HCL. YOUR MENTAL PEACE IS AT STAKE BY JOINING IN THIS ORGANISATION...Read More

It's a great organization to start your career in international process as you get an exposure of to speak to customers all around the globe which enhances your communication skills. Additionally, you get a chance to work on different softwares and technologies which can be highlighted on your resume.

Dislikes

It's a great place to start career but honestly I will suggest to invest only one year of your time in BPO secter as the company provides promotion but only after you give 3 years moreover, promotion doesn't mean salary hike here. Additionally they insist you for over time but you don't get paid for over time sometimes and at the end of the month you get your salary on time but each and every month there will be unnecessary deductions by payroll department, getting reembersment for those deduction is a long and frustrating process. Long story short work here only for 1 year for experience and don't expect good compensation....Read More

Overall experience is average for me because of long working hours and low compensation but team leaders and supervisors and SMEs have been really supportive and friendly through out the journey.

Dear Students of Techbee, I hope this review is from one of the employee who worked for Training and staffing services First foremost point you need to keep in mind 1. HCL Techbee is offering IT engineer and Associate roles in this company asking students to join paying for 2 lakhs and gst tax 2,38,000 currently . They break ice stating this is the best opportunities at work place Before that ask them these questions 1. Since HCL is top 4 companies in terms of revenue Over 11 B and it's presence in 50+ countries why do they charge 2,38,000 from students stating candidate will be trained on software curriculum (which means Excel,access) works few concepts of programing and DBMS which cost less than 25k but why they charge 2.38L 2.When this program is in Australia they don't charge a single penny during 3 months which is foundation classes (if candidate feel ok of the curriculum then he goes ahead but here in India they ask you to go bank loan giving enough fake promises of not required to pay interest until u get job in HCL) which has raise my doubts on the program Since HCL is Hindustani computer limited company why they looting indian money rather they don't focus the same in Other countries bcz they feel Indians are fools 3. They even say who get 90% in course after one year of training will be reimbursement will be paid total fee (for God sake please ask who got 90% earlier and who been paid list) HCL will tell due to privacy concern we cannot do that but real fact is no one ever get 90% .Don't be as fooled as thinking I would get 90% in exam they won't allow u to cross 90% in exam the paper for intermediate candidates passout would be questioned on PHD range questions where even a doctrate cannot answer then how could a intermediate guy can pass?? So please come out of wrong notation 4. Guys don't ever think this exam to join Techbee is tough ..every candidate will get selected and provided with offer letter . I can give 100 reasons why not to join...Read More

Company job security is better than other consulting firm such as Tech Mahindra but not as much as TCS, Infosys

Dislikes

Salary growth is pathetically slow. For promotion , they dont have a policy . And even if policy is there for there anything like they have a policy that mandatory period to work in a project - Business Unit manager can overrule that . HR is there for name , they dont have any power over L4 managers. Salary growth rule is such unrelable that the Exceptional Performer can get less salary hike than an Average performer. Its all decided at L4 level. Just remember this rules if you are joining here. You are not entitled to get salary hike on the 1st 3 years of joining here. So negotiate your salary hike before joining here. But you can overrulle the above rule if you have offers every year and in a position to resign. So to work in such company - The most important thing to do is to keep enhancing your skills and keep looking for jobs. Performance in HCL is secondary to that ...Read More

The company has good working culture and also provides job security. Also, there are machines for free coffee/tea which is bit relaxing.

Dislikes

The company is 'Not at all employee-centric' and has policies which gives 'Zero Benefits' to the employees. They may give you appraisal which is also very low and then will also take back the money if you leave in between the appraisal cycle which is very disturbing. It's like you have to serve a bond even while experienced. Worst part is that you'll never receive even the near about salary which is mentioned in your CTC. They deduct a lot of the amount which is not even explained clearly and will take plentiful of work from you, leaving you depressed. No recognition being given even for your hard work. Your clients will appreciate you but your managers won't! No shift allowance given here. In my project, we had to stay on call for the complete shift, while working from home. Such hectic schedules are to be followed here. The company must start to think for its employees!...Read More

My work kept me engaged for most of the time in my shift. I had to attend many meetings which sometimes resulted in my shift time to exceed. Being a quick learner, it was easy for me to learn new things for which I was always appreciated.

Job Security is what I like. But in case of promoting employee there is favoritism. Employee even after getting good rating don't get promoted. Same goes with increment, if you are boss favourite you get good increment orelse there won't be much as you expect. This might not be whole HCL but this I am facing in my team and even my other teammates with agree on this. Due to which attrition rate in our team is more. Even I am planning to resign due to the same...Read More

Again on 10th Jan 2022 I asked for release from my Projectfor internal job movement and my manager said April 2022 onwards he will think for my release from project that means again my 6 months are gone for my release. And this period mental torture, rating and increment everything is on toss....Read More

Job security, Brand name, coworkers were respectful especially towards women ..no loose comments just work and support. Higher authority manager was kind.Training is good.

Dislikes

You have to be extremely loyal to ypur work otherwise there will be critic bosses who would be after you. I found a problem in work life balance, that was continous non-stop calling process with rotational shift. And as a human person will do search for some air. Secondly, it becomes boring unless you get other works where it requires learning and knowledge. If it contradicts your self-respect then that is not for you. Thirdly, Salary , if you have good amount of experience then only you can expect a good amount of salary. Management is somewhere not good, everything needs to be revolutionised there which I sensed. Because of this reason work load is constantly heavy or it keeps on increasing. Which in turn creates frustation amongst managers which redirects to people at work especially to whom they suspect. Last but not the least if you are working for promotion only that person will get promotion whom manager has eye upon and if you show off or continously contact with your work inshort politics. ...Read More
