    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 Management

    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.

  2. Needs more trimming down of management

    Pros

    Great people across the globe, a huge variety of work and opportunities, particularly if you like to travel. The Management are now recognising the need to hire more local staff in each geography which is beneficial for the UK and Wipro as a global player.

    Cons

    With all large companies processes can be slow and difficult, this company is no exception and could really do with a hard look at streamlining all internal processes.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise local locations and the nuances of different cultures and match processes accordingly

  6. Many opportunities worldwide

    Pros

    Diverse business in IT area, with many clients and projects all over the world.
    High maturity processes.
    Carrer Path and people management.
    Induction programs to help people integration.

    Cons

    Lack of 'local' sensitivity - most of the business is controlled and managed centrally.
    Some managers protect themselves by not allowing their team to grow.
    Too India centric.

    Advice to Management

    Provide 'true' empowerment and autonomy to local teams - they know the customer better.

    Pros

    some nice colleagues in the US

    Cons

    Everyone starts off with energy and enthusiasm for Wipro - it doesn't take long to realise its a company shackled to its Indian routes. Never have I worked for a company that was so disrespectful to its employees - openly disregarding non Indian opinion and expertise. Everyone works in fear of their Managers - most of which are also Indian who will shout at you in front of others. Horrible atmosphere - everyone is rude to each other - and the only way to get stuff done is to raise your voice. I had to wait 3 months for my first pay cheque - you get lied to regularly - they don't trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being racist.

  9. The bureaucracy and the related politics can be stifling and counter-productive.

    Pros

    Good amenities at most delivery locations (even outside India). Fairly well respected in the marketplace. Relatively good day-to-day IT support. Large size allows for moving within the company. Relatively good work-life balance (but this also depends a lot on your level and the kind of role you are in). Those who are deputed to overseas roles (especially in US/UK) from India are paid a good 25-30% less than the market rate for the same role.

    Cons

    Heavily bureaucratic. 'Red tapes' exist almost everywhere you look.
    The HR function is almost a joke. I don't remember seeing even one C-SAT survey rolled out by the HR teams during my tenure of close to 8 years, and I guess thats because they themselves may be aware that their existence is merely a formality since every company should have a HR function.
    The other internal support functions aren't effective and (almost not at all) employee friendly.
    Not all divisions are growing as fast as they should.
    Meritocracy & 'Wipro Values', though constantly implied a lot on paper, aren't really applied. The appraisals are more of a 'tick in the box' than actual quality dialogue between a manager and his team.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of long timers (10+ years) who aren't as effective as they used to be. Importantly, they seem to have become very territorial (especially if they are CEMs placed onsite with the same client for too long) and start indulging in cheap politics to safeguard their position at the cost losing some good talent, which in turn may affect C-SAT, etc in the mid-long run. At least for this reason, rotate them at least every 4-5 years or risk having fiefdoms all over.

    Pros

    I did not saw anything positive thing during my tenure with Wipro.

    More important is fair and commitments . Which is no way part of Wipro culture.

    Cons

    Very bad experience with wipro. No respect for technical staff. Managers work culture is like hitler treatment.
    No work life balance. Managers are always expecting you to work on weekend and off hours. Policies are not transparent to employees. All depends upon your manager and assignment.

    The focus is only to bill employee no matter profile is matching or not. Once you joined Wipro will realize unfair and all false statement made by HR during your joining / selection period

    Even after left company very bad experience with full and final process. Its not a professional company to work.

    I never saw this type of Bad company in my career life so far.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers and every one has different world.

    Managers needs some training to work with professionals . Most of the managers are coming from India location where they have experience to handle only RUKIES ( students ). They need some training to work with professionals and in different geographical location and multi culture environment.

  11. Okay but not great

    Pros

    Stable company with lot of business and has well established structure. Well known name within IT Business and has projects running in various locations throughout the world.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a role unless you play organizational politics. Growing in UK is extremely difficult and there are no regular increments despite good performance and being in billable role, which is demotivating. There is lot of disparity in money paid to local hires recruited from UK based on your negotiation skills rather than what value you are bringing to company.

    Advice to Management

    Please look after loyal employees in UK rather than dishing out high entry level salary to new hires with no proven value, encourage organic progression.
