    Pros

    Project engagement
    Good opportunity to get established by working on large projects with big companies

    Cons

    Company can be too centralized as part of the culture. So when it's comes to needing an immediate decision it can be drawn out into days or weeks.

    Promotions at times can be impossible even when meeting expectations on a quarterly basis. It's often times dangled like a carrot in front of your face. Yet if the fault is on some other external factors out of your control it will completely be forgotten

    As part of the culture work life balance is terrible. Managers or team members abroad do not respect your hours here in the US and call often at inappropriate times during the night. They expect you to work in India and US time

    The payroll department is probably the worst part. The payroll is terrible and makes the company the main reason not to want to work for them. They often make changes in your checks without telling you about it. There is no direct person to talk to to fix it, it's like they are playing the shell game with you. I took me over a year to get an address change to be fixed on a check after many follow ups and emails. The bonus check does not come when it they say it will. The only time they move us if you send them nasty mails. Even when you have a system in which you modify and changes that should be reflect on you immediate check, they will not update details.

     Promotions also depend on what managers you have on your team. There are times where people I hired were set up to fail because project was in such a bad state. At times it can feel like are working for a sweatshop.

    They company has internal training but they do not cultivate talent by helping for certifications or programs to stimulate internal growth unless you are in India. Also the work hours they give are impossible manage pursuit of education to grow in you career.

    Pros

    Corporate provides training programs, online learning opportunities. Pay is on par with the position for the geographical region.

    Cons

    Complete lack of trust in the 'doers.' Very little respect from upper management for the 'underlings'. Complete lack of guidance and leadership. The Sales group is very good at selling products that don't exist to potential clients and executive management excels at pushing everyone to then try and duct-tape something together that might satiate the client until such time as we actual implement the product sold. There are absolutely no formal processes in place for any line of business. This causes tremendous confusion among everyone. The Project Managers are expected to 'manage' a project in which there is no product, severe resource constraints (most are offshore and those that are do not know how to effectively communicate (email is the preferred method...you will receive upward of 200 new email per day), and no support or guidance provided by direct management. Developers are expected to work 24/7 and unexpected life circumstances are just not tolerated. If your father in India passes away, don't expect to be able to travel to attend the funeral. After all, you have to build the product that was sold to the client that management said we have and is fully functional.

    The philosophy of this particular part of the organization seems to be, Over Promise and Under Deliver.

    Many times, the work environment is borderline hostile. It is not uncommon to see an individual or group of individuals called out, berated, and objectified, in an email sent to the entirety of the office.

    Wipro corporate has a policy which does not allow an employee to transfer to another position until they have been in their current position for at least 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Create processes and manage to those processes. There can be no accountability when there is not a clear understanding of one's expectations. Take ownership of the decisions you make for your organization...in fact, make a decision and lead your employees to success.
