    Pros

    None. There are no pros. You will loose you family life and family will start loosing you. Horrible company!!!!

    Cons

    Have 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop exploiting employees by saying good job and gaining money on peoples blood.

    Pros

    No reason as of now.

    Cons

    All 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 ManagementAdvice

    Compare 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.

    Pros

    A $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.

    Cons

    An 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    I worked at Wipro

    Pros

    Growth 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.

    Cons

    Salary 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.

    I worked at Wipro

    Pros

    none, 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 ManagementAdvice

    When 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.

    Pros

    They hired me and liked my resume and background

    Cons

    They are more willing to please the client than there employees

    They bascially allowed a client a small private marketing company to fire me for a complaint from an employee of the client that was just power tripping. They basically sat back and threw me under the bus without any fight what so ever.
