    Pros

    Wipro was good place to work back in 2003. I suggested to join to people.

    Cons

    Now a days it is all day to day billing. Hardly cares about employee satisfaction and benefits. People make policies and exceptions are given to whoever asks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have long term vision about employee satisfaction and benefits

    Current Employee - Practice Partner in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Good salary, bonus paid regularly

    Cons

    Awful middle management. They are mostly yes men, or relatives of someone in power
    Treated like a slave, no respect for individuals.
    5 days sick a year, then nothing...
    Martini management style, your expected to work, anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat staff like people not slaves. Realise that they have families and cant live in hotels for months on end.

    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager  in  London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Excellent capability of disguising little capability for high capability.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Archaic and antiquated processes. Bureaucratic to the point of impeding operations. Poor leadership. Capabilities are superficial and only a facade. Tenets on the company business card are only for show and are not practiced in the company. Integrity is a buzzword but not actually practiced. Indian-heavy/centric management with a bias to promoting Indians. The saying in the company is, "In the end, it will be all right. If it is not all right, then it isn't the end." Pretty much sums it up. Poor delivery, poor quality, missed timelines, blame culture. No accountability of senior leaders. Senior leaders tend to stay in India to include the Senior Delivery Heads. Little presence on-site where support is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with what is actually happening in the company. Stop living in ivory towers.

    An India headquarters company which pretends to be global.

    Current Employee - Client Partner  in  London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Client Partner in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Some good capability and service offerings
    Solid delivery of fixed-price production support engagements

    Cons

    Completely managed out of Bangalore; account execs have little real control.
    Your location and nationality will influence your progression - natively if you're a Westerner (this is not sour grapes - look at the Executvie and senior leadership team)
    Executive don't understand their customers business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Employ Western executives and real country / geo structures or stop pretending to be global - make up your mind.
    2. Get to understand your customers business or become increasingly commoditised. See point 1 - they are related.
    3. Apply your sales assessment process or something similarly to your executive leadership - and then start changing them.

    Pros

    Good company for freshers to pick up skills and learn the job. Opportunity for those who want to learn and show interest to take responsibilities.

    Cons

    Bad Salary options, Instead of developing existing employees, they seem to spend more time and money on hiring new employees and short term contractors. Not a good long term strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and motivate talent within the company

    general incompetence across the board.
    Lack of integrity in HR matters.
    Appalling culture - regular angry shouting matches heard in meeting rooms.

    To the board - sell the company to an organisation that knows what they are doing.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, some nice clients to work for

    Cons

    If you are not Indian, forget promotions, nice jobs and salary hikes. Do not accept a position of responsibility, since the Indian HQ based managers will make you the scapegoat or claim all the credits.
    Main claim is integrirty, but that is lip service by highest management, middle managers will stab you in the back.
    HR is a laughing stock.
    There is no knowledge of local laws and regulations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all HR staff and outsource it to an international company.
    Managers caught lying should be disciplined.
    Stop discrimination on country of origin.
