    Pros

    The employees who service State government Medicaid contracts are the most highly skilled and knowledgeable people I have worked with.

    Cons

    Wipro Limited Management, a division of Wipro, an offshore based company from India has created additional bureaucratic layers for local Management and has totally tied their hands to manage on a day-to-day basis. When hired for one key management position, I arrived to find out i was actually assigned three key management positions. When I pushed back and asked for transparency and honesty, I was shown the door.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Stop billing MO State Medicaid for employee work done on other projects such as responding to RFP's and RFI's in other states.

    Pros

    The only thing that was nice about Infocrossing was that they have an employee group - made up of funds donated by the employees which provided breakfast at a small cost, then with the money made they would buy small gifts at the holidays for the employees.

    Cons

    Management doesnt care about the employees at all. There are many experienced people who do not get promoted because the managers dont like them. Some employees are allowed to goof off while the others have to cover their work. Most employees never get a raise until they are management in the MO company however the India company gives anywhere from 10%-16% raises yearly.

    Advice to Management

    Speak up to the corporate office and get the employees some benefits. Manage your employees better.
    Quit making friends outside of work with some employees and then letting them do as they please at work. You shouldnt be a friend - you should be a manager.

    Pros

    I didn't eat the free bagels

    Cons

    Long hours No pay increases Teams both on shore and off hard to get a hold of.

    Virtual and Recovery Service are bad but Monitoring is worse. 100 device down tickets in the middle of the night for a server that was retired and the Monitoring team didn't even look at the ticket for 2 weeks.

    Pros

    Pro: Not too much, but the ability to work from home was a major thing at the time, but I think that's changed as well

    Cons

    Since the buyout of Infocrossing by Wipro, things have continued to go downhill. its way to common to be told that you have to put in 50+ hour weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the employees about the status of the offshoring, and come out and say what you think needs to be done for people to have a long term job.

  7. 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.
