    I worked at Wipro full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There were no pros working here. From day1 'induction' which involved waiting around for 3 hours for a PC to month 2 when told job didn't exist to month 7 when I quit.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Cons

    company will lot of inbuilt talent and let's you choose different roles that you want to play

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

    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.

    Awful. Zero support from management, managers more interested in their own career progression.

    Pros

    None. Too self interested managers.

    Cons

    Too many to share here. Just avoid Enterprise Architecture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop only thinking of your own career and stop screwing staff and clients.

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

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

    Pros

    no need to show your face to anyone while you're on bench i.e. work from home a very accepted option
    Freedom to contribute intellectually; it is not the preserve of Partners only

    Cons

    myopic, ostrich mentality of leadership
    constant sword hanging on head (read "billability")
    the leader of Consulting has little / no consulting background
    no way of creating a bank of good work - you live for the day and try to survive..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    how on earth can senior leadership be so blind. you don't need someone to give you advice on Glassdoor.
    Consulting gets differentiated by brainpower and brainpower needs to be preserved and respected - do you really do either of this?

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros

    Cons

    This company doesn't have any processes,even though they claim to be the first CMMi level 5 company in the world. There is no place for merit and things work purely based on knowing senior guys. They don't take any care of employee even when an employee is joining or leaving (these are 2 times when any company gives the highest importance to any employee in my experience).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lot of issues to be handled, please do something about them if you want to improve the bad name that the company has got

    Pros

    good to work after graduation

    Cons

    Not employee oriented, mostly money oriented process. Too much process that it becomes an overhead most times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little employee oriented and make the system work to hear employee concerns and don't wait for them to raise concerns. Giving onsite to someone is not a favor you do to them, it is a win-win for both employer and employee but I guess Wipro doesn't understand this.
