    Poor salary and progression. Overall no direction from the leadership team. Its a typical service based company that runs on a billing model only and not the employee interest or growth.

    I worked at Wipro as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Got client call right after next day after one Skype interview of Wipro guy

    Cons

    I had two rounds of Skype interview. One interview was from Wipro and another one from client. During interview session, whatever job responsibilities I was asked by Wipro and client manager never found at the client side.From the beginning I was isolated and not properly assisted by the manager and coordinated by team.
    Worst part is no collaboration, everything was fishy, I had to drive out of state for 'immediate join' but never got any project rather than they hired internally someone else later. Manager at client side was never warm and cooperative as well as I never got any email respond regarding my status update. And the result turned into my release just after one month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    B honest and straight forward! Please Make sure what exactly client site is looking for, what they want, what are their actual job requirements. Please don't hire someone out of state if you don't really don't have good relationships with clients. Hiring candidates for 6+ months and terminating them just after one month is not a joke. Also they need to pay on time and improve their time sheets.
