You'll hate it. But if you have a game plan and a definite exit strategy, then you'll love it. I moved to Des Moines, ia. Told myself it won't exceed 3yrs.... Made sure I didn't fall in love with an Iowan beauty and made it back to NY safe and intact and back

Went through HCL Technologies HR discussion and salary discussion 10 days back. Initial required documents are sent from my side over mail to HR as they asked. HR told they will proceed with the profile and will update back post getting the approval. After that no update yet and HR is not responding over mails/calls as usual. Should I consider they are not proceeding? Any idea how many days it takes in general HCL Technologies
