    I have been working at Wipro full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wipro brand own by Azim premji ...(aka APR ).. one of the best personality in India who is IT Mugal ..Philanthropist. Social Work. Sprit of Wipro...

    2. Onsite Opportunity, Lower bench period. Salary on time .Good process for

    Cons

    Too much managerial Hierarchy, People In and People Out . You need to know minimum 5 yrs to know the entire wipro functioning .
    Very Low annual increment till 2010 – 11 computation growth was 7%-12%( Low – High) , Now the growth rates are 3%- 4%. Manager control everything.

    No connect above 2 layer of managerial hierarchy. You are Lucky if you get good manager and his manager to connect .. With good technical knowledge and Managerial skills. Some manager act funny.
    Every Employee has at list 4 manager, Account manager, project manager , Delivery manager and Ted manager .
    Forget promotion. If you are hardworking, they don't give promotion. If you have political mind and if you can influence and prove your manager with some other skills then you have a chances.

    Poor Training , if you are looking for learning new skills , Forget about new skill . Some time you will forget even your basic skill , if you are team lead and above .

    Most of the core jobs were done by rookies and college fresher’s . Poor quality of deliverables and coding quality .

    You have to go through lots of online courses, which has no relevance on your daily project task .

    Advice to Management

    Training , Training , Ttraining , Please invest resource time atleast 12.5% on Training of over all 87.5% of billability .

    Management should think why CTS , HCL , INFY has better edge than Wipro .
