    Its a blood sucker company.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Buffalo Grove, IL

    ProsNone. There are no pros. You will loose you family life and family will start loosing you. Horrible company!!!!

    ConsHave so many good policies but they use all wrong way to harass employee. Unnecessarily keep employees in pressure with bonds and long notice period so that you cant jump to the next company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop exploiting employees by saying good job and gaining money on peoples blood.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Less pay, Employee policies worst in industry, under usage of right resources.

    Technical Lead (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsNo reason as of now.

    ConsAll employee benefits have been cut off. Maximum leave accrual has been restricted per year. Insurance plans offered are very costly to employee(mostly cheaper for employer).
    No proper utilization of resources for assignments.
    Excessive work pressure on employees, unsatisfied customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompare your employee policies with competitors and make employees happy which might get back this company in race.
    Stop cheap cost cutting like keeping a cap on maximum leave accrual and giving costlier insurance plans.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Wipro-Infotech

    General Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsA $Billion off-shore softwerae development company with presence on 5 continents. This employer is very effecctive in promoting an agressive yet up-beat sounding mission statemnt and market presence.

    ConsAn extremely cuturally biased organization. If you are not an Indian National be VERY careful. The behind the scenes relationships are an insurmountable obsticle to having any message you want heard be heard. Policy and project decisions are amost lways made by friends in out-of-office meetings billed as social engagements to which non Indian National are never invited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop baiting and awitcing on new hires. If you hire someone to do a particular job or serve a specific task don't sudenly layer on new and conflicting expectations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Meaningless performance incentives

    Onsite Program Manager (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGrowth oriented and aggressive attitude. These people want to expand and make money, so if you are interested in fast growth, Wipro is a great place to go.

    ConsSalary is based on your visa status. So if you are on L-1 visa, then you are bonded labor and would end up getting paid atleast 10k less than H1 visa holders. Considering that you would not have a personal life left after all the onsite-offshore coordination calls done after 9pm, there is neither respect nor reward.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    your resources are your consultant. Take care of them well.

    Senior Associate (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    Prosnone, there is not much besides consulting hops from one place to another. The company had a great product in the area of network management they had no clue what to do with it and sold it for pittance. The GM was clueless about it when asked. Another GM I worked for was primarily counting heads. overall a big no despite all the hype around the org.

    Cons- no relocation
    - extremely poor follow up on their own commitments
    - utter disregard for families

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you send engineers from India give them a life with dignity. These engineers who leave their home and everything are basically on their own expense after the 5th day. You have to ask for the cab money from hotel to the apartment you'd move in. No car, no relocation assitance except for help from site coordinators.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
