    I have been working at Wipro full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for Learning and sharing knowledge
    Good opportunities to work abroad (customer sites)

    Cons

    The rigor and diligence applied in the operational process may be shifted to the quality of the deliverables and actually being customer centric. The way the company is operating currently doesn't help the customer nor the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift the focus on the customer and do what works for the customer, improve the quality and revise the rate card (to charge more) and invest upfront if necessary. Review the organization structure, the horizontals mode may help achieve the operating margins but is not helping keep the customers happy.

    I have been working at Wipro full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I don't have any pros to list.

    Cons

    Forced into a Wipro contract as a "preferred supplier" of resource for a large corporation.
    One and half months in and still unpaid due to numerous events where poor communication was brushed off.

    I have been working at Wipro full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bonus is fairly regular if they can find you an assignment. Some of the assignments are really interesting but the majority are tedious tasks that the clients staff don't want to do.

    Cons

    Your treated like a slave and your opinions, needs and concerns are totally ignored. If they can't find you work then your in the line to be fired. Maximum of one week sick in any year and then no pay. The health benefit scheme has more exclusions than inclusions. Middle management can't manage very well. Culture needs changing from me master you slave to that of a global company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what the competion offer their staff and do something similar, look at developing sales pipelines. Realise that not everyone can drop all commitments and go overseas for months on end. Care about your staff and stop treating them like slaves.

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

    Pros

    They would have multiple clients across geography and would give enough exposure to the freshers.

    Cons

    The subject master would think that no one knows more than him.
    Most of the senior most roles would only be given to Indians and in particularly South Indians.
    They would talk good things but when it comes to salary and promotion none has any power except bosses sitting at Bangalore office.
    The interviewers are below sub standards and would be busy working on their laptops while taking the interviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some respect to other cultures as well. Give them chance to grow

    Pros

    Dont really see any Pros.

    Cons

    This review is for Wipro Technologies (IT Sector).
    UCF exam which if you dont clear you may be asked to leave company, this exam even if you clear once next yr they will ask u to take again saying syllabus has changed which is really pathetic and madness. Also this is made aware after you join wipro.
    Practice/CoE ppl struggle most because vertical ppl dont consider them and practice dont have more control for appraisals/hikes.
    Learning curve is most horrific and worrying factor, ppl themself will agree that it is not really adding any value to their experience, customers dont respect wipro much as a quality vendor.
    Policies are the worst part when you travel onshore, no accomodation/guest house facility you need to arrange on ur own, they will pay u indian salary for initial 3 months and per day basis for expenses incurred on food and accomodation so basically your initial 3 months are as good as you are at offshore and some ppl may return also in those 3 months also so basically its not onshore trip but just a local trip in terms of savings from salary.
    There are lot of hidden policies, like they will deduct your onshore salary to pay your pf and even employer pf in india. They are deducting more amount at onshore but are paying less in indian account saying that excess amount is for employer contribution towards PF (Pathetic).
    When employee return from onshore they need to settle the FTR (Foreign Travel Request) which means the advance amount given to employee and until they dont settle the last month of onshore salary is not given.
    Appraisals are just name sake and are decided by higher management, ppl even are blamed by managers saying that since you are in this team thats your mistake and thats why we cant give you good rating and you can do what ever you want its ur wish. HR is just for name sake to obey what senior managers say.
    Very poor hikes almost like 2-3% anually.
    Like this there are n no. of reasons for which you will feel later that why I joined this company.
    PLZ PLZ AND PLZ IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER OPTION GO FOR IT AND NEVER JOIN THIS COMPANY ELSE YOU WILL BE DISSAPPOINTED LATER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the worst management we need to identify from all companies then it will be Wipro who will rank 1st. I think management need to change and also change the policies else attrition rate is going to shoot high which has been in till now.

    I have been working at Wipro

    Pros

    Good infrastructure, If you get onsite opportunity then the payment will be good

    Cons

    From where shall I start:
    1) Company has pathetic retention policy(no wonder why the attrition is so high)
    2) HR never care about employees
    3)Compensation is poor as compared to other companies
    4)Regionalism is rampant
    5) Managers are dumb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the entire hierarchy and introduce a stern test to allow only the best candidate to become managers. And seriously work on HR policies.
