These are my personal reviews which I have gathered from employees and ofcourse noticed, should have been taken care. I have mentioned this in many meetings with my senior colleagues, but I know nothing much they can do.
Actually Interviewer needs to be trained on how to interview. Also, there should be a selection process for Interviewer as well. I can see there many below average candidates gets through just like that. And its very hard to deploy them to the project. And hence the project escalations and pressure on good resources. At times there are pressure on inteviewer to select the candidate even if they are average as there is a urgency in the pipeline demand. If we are rejecting many, then you will for sure be highlighted to your Sr.management.
One of the worst mechanism I would say. Those who are known to Manager are the one who gets a better ratings. Background workers will ever be noticed. As a thumb rule, who works hard (or smart or whatever terms) will not get either promotion or good rating. Hence it will have direct impact on their yearly increment. Nobody would ever bother about that. And you will also forget about the rating/increment few years later.I would say there are some good people still stick to the job only because of the location / family constraints. Retaining good talents is not an option at all.
There are good managers indeed. But again the ratio is very less. I have seen many of

There is good work life balance. But salary and benefits are extremely poor and far below the market standard.
This is a review for the enabling function.
There has been a wide shift in the company culture in the past couple of years.
The work environment has changed from balanced to competitive which is a positive change. Another positive change has been timely payment of the annual bonus over the past two years. Normally bonuses were not distributed within 8-10 months of the end of the appraisal cycle. For exiting employees, the year end bonus was a literally lost money. It is good that this situation has changed.
Now for the negative changes and aspects. The management is top heavy and there is not much space for growth. Almost every two years a level is being added between the grades. For example, there were two levels from E2 to E3 grade and now there are three. There are 9 Bands and grades and each band has 2-3 designations in between.
For a person to reach from E2 to E7 grade / band, he has to essentially go through 13 designations and if you expect a normal growth of a promotion every two years, that's 26 years to reach E7 alone and in all 30 years to reach E9. Normally, a person would have to reach 60 to reach E9. That being said, the retirement is at 55.
Insurance cover is bare minimum and so are the leaves. Additionally, there are no "sick leaves". There is a HR approved Pandemic leave for COVID cases in case you test positive.
There are also some good compensation packages in case of death / disability and death during pandemic. Pandemic support is also good. The m

A day in HCL consists of a vast amount of experience. The job culture in HCL is so systematic that, it is not just the technical skills will do our day. It has to deal with various set of challenges to conform to the organizational standard values.

Completed my education from Richard Stockton State University of NJ with a BA in Graphic Design/Animation Graphics (1993) and BS in Computer Science (1999). In past 15 years I have had the opportunity to be employed by several major corporations with leadership experiences which shaped my career. The companies I have worked for are: Johnson & Johnson Health Care, Abbott Laboratories, mTv Networks, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Hatchet Publishing Group and Commerce Bank ( AKA - TD America) along with operating my several home businesses in partnership with - Mary Kay Inc., and Henna Designs.
While working at Commerce Bank (1998-2000) as a Branch Manager, I was given an opportunity to volunteer to test the On-Line banking application which became my passion and goal to provide the most user friendly access to our customers/end users. I then returned back to school to complete my BS in Computer Science. My passion to provide ultimate user friendly access opened the doors to transition into Commerce Bank's IT team full time to test the On-line application. This was just the beginning of my Corporate career. Shortly thereafter, I joined Citibank (AKA - Citigroup or Citi ) where I worked for nearly a decade. At Citi, I had an opportunity to work in various different areas of Information Technology and acquire a flavor of different technologies. Here I mastered analyzing, understanding and delivering Organizational requirements by understanding the business structure,

Make a quick buck but not satisfying work
A typical day at work includes logging in on time, getting your systems going, checking if there's any new emails/announcements, and getting on the phone. Phone calls vary and callers are typically just trying to get something done, not overly crabby. But when you call the help desk with questions or escalations, be prepared to wait 10-45 minutes, leaning more towards 20 minutes or more on average. And once you reach the help desk, it's like playing roulette - which help desk person will you get and what mood will they be in. This is more stressful than the callers, as you often get snarky responses to your questions. You feel stupid, incompetent, and angry as you go back to your caller. The rest of the call goes fine usually. You note the account. You hang up. Next call.
The job is pretty straight forward and you are trained well. However, training can be hectic. I have yet to see one training class not have major hiccups in the location of training, the availability of laptops for the training, the availability of the trainer for the training, and even the length of training. They did get a new training room built on the first floor so that has helped out some.
I went through two trainings. I started at one project with two supervisory type people and several that you could also talk to for help with stuff, experts. I learned my job, liked it overall. But I switched desks four times within 2 months I was on the project and had to share my desk with other agents, somet
Aggressive Focus on targets, poor management, pay issues, disgusting facilitates.
The work is thankless a lot of the time. Salary is very low (10.77 per hour 37.5 hours per week) and there are no real extras other than a measly 200 euro bonus at the end of the month, although this had many MANY factors on whether on not you would receive the full amount (call quality, targets etc) sometimes you could get free pizza, maybe once every 3 months..Direct management can turn on you very quickly if targets aren't met, as it directly affects their own large bonus if the team hasn't reached their own targets. There isn't really support or coaching offered when not reaching these targets. I was often threatened verbally and by email that if said targets weren't met this would lead to dismissal. So it goes without saying office morale was very low. If you need to use the toilet you were restricted to 10 minutes which was timed down to the second. if you exceed this allowance you could either stay back at the end of your shift or have it deducted from your already low income. Payroll issues were quite frequent also when having issues with pay you could email your direct manager although this will probably fall on deaf ears. No paid sick days either. Worked for this company for four years on two separate teams, within my first 2 years I worked on an outbound dialler ringing customers who specifically asked not to be called thus having an argument with disgruntled customers who simply didn't want to cold called which was understandable. In my last two years I worked on
I was hired as a Shift Lead and performed the function of a Team Lead with no compensation for it. They taunted me with the title change for over 8 months saying it was being processed but, never went through. I have several analysts that worked under me that performed overtime upon companies request and were never compensated for it. I was released from the project and benched without any notification or reason given.
They give you 30 days to be picked up by another team. If not picked up, your are summarily released. I got no replies to phone calls to HR or to other project teams. I was never officially informed that they had put me into the "Exit Management System". Two weeks later when I was given a reason they said it was the client that requested my removal with no prior complaints or service issues. I NEVER received any reason for my removal despite multiple written and phone requests. I was told that the client always gets what they ask for. When you enter EMS your are officially benched. If it was due to downsizing you may be picked up quickly but, if they have put a mark on your Benched status of being removed at client request this puts a flag on your status and no other teams will touch you.
I have been asked to lie to the client and have been commanded to issue write-ups for subordinates that didn't deserve them so that upper management looks better to the client. The problem with this is none of the upper leaders which changed every 3 weeks had ever met a

The trainee itself is essentially to know that your cable of getting onto the phones but it rushed and by the time you actually reach the phones, the majority of what you learnt isn't even need. The scripts are helping but doesnt contain as much information to answer the random questions you'll get from customers. Trying to find a team leader/manager whose available to help you I'd honestly say is a nightmare.
Buddying up is probably one of the things you might want to bring a facemask for. I was buddied up with people who smelt bad or didnt know what a shower is. Although there personality's where nice it was hard to focus on what they where doing based on how they smelt and having to sit so close to them to actually see what the heck they are doing onscreen till your able to actually do it yourself - when your trainer believe you are ready to while buddying up. Most people wont like being buddied up with nor explain anything to you while being buddied up. The more questions you ask the better.
They say you have benefits like being able to go to the gym at a discounted rate etc but within 3 weeks I was getting mixed information about what benefits we actually get. Other than being able to have a comfort break when stressed (which is 10 minutes a day - in a place where your on calls literally none stop till you r scheduled breaks kick in which sometimes you might be on a call over them and have to wait to finish the call to actually take your scheduled break)
ConsEnvironment, no benefits, barely any help etc
