      Approves of CEO

      I worked at HCL Technologies full-time

      Pros

      One of the best places I have had the opportunity to work, what with a dynamic young VP and a tight-knit team to empower his ideas. A plethora of technology-v verticals when it comes to pre-sales engagements and converting leads to customers.

      Cons

      There is not much engagement in Canada/GTA as they have yet to focus on the nearshore capability of Canada when it comes to servicing their core clientele.

      Advice to Management

      Please look to Canada as a potent and powerful nearshore facility. Also, the process of immigration, as put in place by Canada ensures that it now gets the best and brightest. This talent pool will be available for the UK and the European mainland areas as well.
