    I have been working at Wipro full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people across the globe, a huge variety of work and opportunities, particularly if you like to travel. The Management are now recognising the need to hire more local staff in each geography which is beneficial for the UK and Wipro as a global player.

    Cons

    With all large companies processes can be slow and difficult, this company is no exception and could really do with a hard look at streamlining all internal processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise local locations and the nuances of different cultures and match processes accordingly

    I have been working at Wipro

    Pros

    Very good policies
    Secured work environment
    Best infrastructure and workplace ambience
    good facilities but with respect to designation

    Cons

    Since it is a very big organization, politics is inevitable and difficult to monitor and curb.
    For freshers and beginners the compensation is not good and employee retention has degraded.
    If your luck is not good you may land into a wrong project and wrong people and easily get frustrated but otherwise it's cool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor the managers and increase visibility of work done at the lower levels.
    Device a way out to retain technical experts of/at any Band - be it B3 or TRB ! If the employee is a geek (like me :D) retain him/her.
