HCL, Cognizant among top tech firms that received H1-B in US

Too bad India Inc failure shops such as HCL were the cause of countless failed outsourcing projects in the US including the years-delayed Boeing 787 which caused numerous lawsuits for delivery delays and component failures.


“This source told me that the software that controls the ES was developed by HCL Technologies — a $2 billion (2008 revenues) Indian software company that worked with Boeing and its partners on the 787 and won Boeing’s Gold Performance Excellence Award in February 2009. He spoke with colleagues at United Technologies (UTX) division — Hamilton Sundstrand (HS) — which was the ES’s primary contractor.

His ES colleagues told him that the Designated Engineering Representative (DER) — a SWAT team of top engineers that tests aircraft software against rigorous standards — and the FAA refused to certify the work HCL did and told HS to start over — without HCL. Several of my source’s colleagues joined HS at the end of 2008 in an effort to rewrite the software”.


HCL secures 5,085 H1-B certifications in US, 5th most among top 10 tech firms

Another 5,100 jobs that would have gone to American workers.
