    Pros

    After getting hired I stayed home waiting to be engaged for a project for six months and they payed me regularly with full benefits

    Cons

    The worst "company" ever in my life. They hire people even if they don't have project and then leave you at home at the end of the trial period. Absolutely absence of any form of communication and respect: immoral. Management are really poor people.

    Advice to Management

    Change work

    Pros

    If you are willing to work in different locations on a lower pay than you peers in other companies, then you can have a 'job security', but please read the 'cons' section below.

    Cons

    - culture which encourages kissing your manager(s) behind, as he will only do the year end appraisal.
    - company processes stuck in the 90s
    - Pay borders on exploitation
    - You can have a 'surprise bonus' if you perform really well, but that comes with a clause (you cannot leave company for another YEAR, otherwise they take it back!?)
    - Workers from India are deputed to international destinations on horrible legal clauses (£4200 'bond'). Now, the employee can refuse travel but hey, he also then doesn't want to earn more, doe she? (catch 22?)

    Advice to Management

    - Start behaving like a Global company (rather than trying to be a competitor to one of the other IT firms).
     - Introduce 360 appraisal system for everyone, unlike current process, where the managers get to pick and choose from whom they want to get appraised!?

    Pros

    Onsite experience. Flexible work culture.

    Cons

    I worked at Wipro for more than three years in a full time basis. It is amazing how difficult it is to get your first lead. You are literally abandoned in the company and you have to find a lead for yourself and pull out your contacts from outside. It seems you are a free lancer. HR seem do not exist. Planning and strategy are just words in power points.

    Advice to Management

    Impossible to sum up.

    Pros

    Good onsite opportunities. Long term onsite options but at reduced salary and no carrier progression.

    Cons

    Bullying environment. Not people centric. Horrible place to work for. No ethics, integrity is just a goal on the wall and posters but not followed internally in the organisation nor while dealing with customers

    Treats employees horribly bad, especially during notice period. Always overcommits to get the customer bids but no internal capability or adequate processes to deliver to the commitment. Sales team is excellent but delivery and management capabilities are pathetic. Always ends up paying penalty for multiple accounts and projects due to bad planning and management. Resources not utilised properly .

    Worst of all, the organisation promise long term onsite but cuts basic salary after 2 years in uk to avoid tax. So beware. You may not get paid what you are promised nor what is in the salary slip.

    HR function is a just puppet in the hands on upper management and in no way is employee centric. If you are looking for job satisfaction ,run away from this organisation. My honest opinion after 13 yrs of loyalty with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get your process right and practice integrity and honesty not just preach as an organisation goal.
