Health insurance options are good but you need to pay from your pocket.

Dislikes

HCL policy is not employee friendly compared to other foreign MNCs. Also perks and benefits are there for mere showing off. Client centric company. No overtime and no canteen facility at quadra.

...locations like Goa, Nagpur, pune, Hyderabad etc. Training for cross technology. Fixed CTC, no variable pay. Job security. Work life balance. Better hikes. Internet allowance. i7 laptop provided. Many skills training provided. Certification reimbursement.

Dislikes

40k yearly deduction for food provided in office premises even if you don't eat. Because of COVID situation or what they allocated short term project (4 months max). If they don't have project for your skill then they allocate you to cross technology project with trainings. If you don't like it then it's a con point for you. They put you in lower positions if no projects available for your position. Clients are mostly the pain area. Clients escalation happens the most,even if you work perfect. Managers and management can't able to handle the client. And then team suffers.
