  1. Headed downhill since the Wipro purchase

    Pros

    Nice technology in the cloud, but turnover has crippled the implementation side. Turnover has also led to substantial opportunities for those who stay. There are hints of real change on the way, e.g. job postings for upper management positions, but that leads to even more unknowns. The company is concerned about the attrition and turnover, so it may be an opportunity to play hardball during salary negotiations. Just make sure you get the numbers up-front because annual merit raises are scarce and skimpy.

    Cons

    Sales team makes promises they can't keep and expect build and run teams to pick up the slack.

    "Synergy" deals that host customer systems in Infocrossing data centers and have application support from Wipro IGS are interesting at best. Application teams have -uh- less than optimal skills for the projects they sign up for.

    Continuing education is non-existent.

    Vacations and weekends routinely get cancelled.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the people you have. Push back on Bangalore. Look for an angel to buy IFOX back out.

    Pros

    The cloud systems are built on some nice technology. The technical teams are staffed with some talented people. A good opportunity to get to know an international team, including European and Indian co-workers.

    Cons

    Sales-driven. Deals are often closed on the basis of impossible promises. Management swings wildly between giving teams no direction and micromanagement. Processes either don't exist or are stuck in place. Since Infocrossing folded into Wipro the situation has not improved. Severe cultural clash between Indian management and American tech employee expectations. A vicious circle of technical staff being spread thin leading to attrition leading to more load on the remaining team.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on execution. Don't allow sales people to collect commission until the project is done. Staff adequately. Listen to the technical issues. Encourage process improvement.

    Pros

    High quality of staff, flexibility to work from home when needed, opportunities to work with current technology.

    Cons

    Work hours are long and unpredictable; lots of evening/weekend work expected, often with no advance notice. Chronically short-staffed, but Wipro management will seldom permit hiring or backfilling vacancies in the USA.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to meet unreasonable expectations from Wipro leadership. Staff up adequately to deliver on customer expectations without burning out / losing more employees. Existing employees are getting squeezed to the breaking point. This must stop, or Infocrossing will lose all its talent and fail.
