No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Wipro full-time

Pros

Opportunity to take on new positions
If an employee is a non-performer they can be picked up by another acount without being fired

Cons

Management doesn't communicate well
Some unethical practices
Long hours
Employee gets 'thrown' into positions without proper mentoring or training
Peers and management tend to lean towards favoring others with Indian heritage and believe they're smarter then other cultures
Management makes a lot of promises to customers that are unrealistic then expects frontline employees to figure it out
Indian employees and management throw other employees under the bus to make themselves look good
Not a lot of teaming or collaboration to meet common goals - employees tend to try to take credit for other's contributions
Onsite employees outside of India are disconnected from the company which is mainly in India
Training and events all held on IST timezone

Advice to Management

If your serious about breaking into the US market then you need to ensure Indian employees who are customer facing in the US adapt their business practices to be American. Treat employees that are non-Indian the same as Indian employees.

    Pros

    None actually, they get lots of low end work, so you can get your hands on those low end work and gain some experience, but that will make you good for nothing if you stay longer.

    If you get trapped into this company for any reason, get out of it as soon as you can.

    Some benefits including PTOs have been downgraded, not the worse in the market, but towards that.

    Cons

    - Pays 60% of market rate salary - and they say they pay market rate salary. Any amount of requests for revision goes into black hole.
    - Individual employees are referred to as "resource" or by an xls cell number - no respect for human individuality.
    - Long work hours - virtually no work-life balance, differs from account to account, but I did not find any account where lazy managers had not over committed without understanding a bit of what he/she was getting into.
    - If you dont know someone, you wont get any benefit. Managers behave as they are giving benefits from their pocket.
    - Some acquired companies treat other wipro employees as junk and wipro managers cannot stand up for them. You feel like a waste basket being hit around by one and all.
    - Managers are not at all sincere, there is no transparency in anything. Be prepared to get duped anyday anytime.

    The day one leaves this company, life can only get better. This is the abyss of where one can go into with some technical skill and brains.

    Advice to Management

    - Make managers more sincere and accountable for people they manage. Managers are a burden on the company.
    - Define what your market rates are and if not, say openly that you will pay 60% of market rate salary, best still, pay market rate, its only fair, as you expect people to work beyond market standards in quantity and quality.
    - Get some more guts and stand for your employees.
