    Former Employee - Program Manager in Reading, England (UK)

    I worked at Wipro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent commitment to induction, I was given a week in Bangalore with meetings and interviews with lots of management and technical lead stakeholders. They are genuinely keen to help and the whole ethos is collaborative and energetic.

    Cons

    Indian culture is hard to get past as a Brit. It is hard to get opinions or even input from staff if their manager is around - or if you are at a perceived higher level. Too many attendees on conference calls is hard to manage at times

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more flexible to the needs of international stakeholders

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Wipro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They occasionally pay you some of your salary and benefits.
    They pay you the rest of your salary and benefits if you realise and can prove to them that they've made a mistake...again!

    Cons

    HR in the UK is an absolute joke.
    Middle managers promise opportunity but never deliver.
    You do not get paid regularly with the correct amounts.
    They make many many mistakes and are very slow to correct.
    Most mistakes will involve HR!!!
    Not responding to email and requests is part of the Wipro culture. They will ignore anything that will not benefit the company directly and be very slow at paying their bills if at all.
    Stay well clear as a customer or employee.
    Staff are very demotivated. Even the rare good ones are not incentivised to provide a good service to clients.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Don't promise non Indian employees any career progression.
    Forget the PDD process it just makes you look bad when you do not deliver on your promises and employee become demotivated.
    Thinking about it, Wipro does not have effective management they just have finance guys maximising profits for the company anyway they can without any regard for people or quality of service.
    You've failed myself and all the other TUPE'd staff in our organisation. I'll be moving on shortly with you as just a bad distant memory.

    I have been working at Wipro full-time

    Pros

    Respect for skilled workers, different career paths like Architect, Consultant and Project Management streams

    Cons

    Too much vertical management layer and because of vertical and service line differences, senior architects/consultants need to report to less experienced (and even lower band) project managers.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce management layer and let technical managers be there to lead programs

    I worked at Wipro (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to new experiences; wide client base

    Cons

    Hard working environment; not very european work ethic; said yes to everything even if they couldn't follow through; not much empowerment as a specialist to provide advice - had to follow the company line; very pushy when assigning non-local work locations

    Advice to Management

    listen to your staff from the local country, they do actually understand the market
