    I worked at Wipro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people around you to work with - allows you a lot to learn from. Great place to be for sales professionals

    Cons

    Quite bad salary packages, very little appreciation from management for any delivery role, which is quite taken for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus more on people and less on senior managers. Too much of focus on sales and very little on deliver.

    Can't think of anything. Used to be a good Indian company lost all credentials in last few years. Hopefully new leadership will bring some positive changes

    Bad leadership. Low salary. Lack of depth in service offerings. Highly duplicitous culture. Poor diversity. Women are discriminated against. Number of lawsuits.

    Advice to Management

    Start from scratch

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

    Pros

    Great variety of roles. If you negotiate hard, basic pay and bonus is good. The general 'Sunshine' nature of the Indian culture permeates through most of the organisation and can be a real pleasure to work in.

    Cons

    There is no 'Human' in the company HR culture - just Resource. The organisation appears to be run by the back-office function (in particular HR) which has created a 'cardboard cut-out' version of company culture and values to enable it to position itself alongside companies from developed economies. In doing so, the company presents a veneer of developed economy respectability which has been added to tick boxes concerning integrity, fair play and overall honesty in its dealings. Alongside these concerns, the cultural structure and accompanying nepotism means that only a very small number of people have decision making capability. The rest will go to extraordinary lengths to avoid being made to carry an 'R' or 'A' from the RACI matrix. Essentially, this culture is one that means you cannot trust most people to stand up and take ownership when things get difficult or look bad. The back office function is appalling by developed economy standards. You will rarely get anything achieved in a straightforward manner, despite the vast number of highly diverse and complex internal support systems. Again, there is nothing 'Human' in the treatment of employees from the perspective of individual support. If you can cope with doing everything yourself, including following up on even small things multiple times to get anything done, this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Many of you are highly educated and articulate people. Just wish you would walk-the-walk more instead of all the lip-service dished out about integrity, honesty etc.

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

    Pros

    None. I would try not to work for these forms for the first few years of your career. They do not care about you or your scary. They will assign you to roles you have no experience in.

    Cons

    You are forced to work 9.5 hours a day, and that average must be maintained by hook or crook. The number of holidays is even less, 1.5 a month, 5 sick days, and 2 additional holidays. They have no respect for public or declared holidays as they will force you to come over the weekend to compensate. Limited support for your role after the first month. You’ll have to look after yourself.

    Advice to Management

    You should really work towards helping your employees reach a work life balance. Work less hours and give more holidays. More support to employees to grow at a personal or professional level, and not force assessments on your employees. Let their work speak for them.

    I worked at Wipro (More than a year)

    Pros

    However much I think hard, I struggle to come up with even one plus point about the company.

    Cons

    CEO is a shocker
    No strategy
    Inward focused and not client focused
    Leaders - are they truly leaders?
    Compensation structure isn't transparent

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to a larger company. It would atleast bring peace to your clients and your employees.

    I have been working at Wipro full-time

    Pros

    Compensation. There really is nothing else. Its a body-shopping company. I havent seen my line manager in 2 years

    Cons

    Career progression. Respect. Massive amount of politics. Quality of work. Communication. HR

    Advice to Management

    Get out whilst you can. It`ll stain your CV and no one will want to hire you afterwards.

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

    Pros

    - Almost Guaranteed quarterly bonuses
    - Neat phone app to do time sheets

    Cons

    - Very, very poor salary, 1.7% increase in 4 years and they acted like they were doing me a favour.
    - The most minimal annual & sick leave allowed by UK law.
    - Indian company and Indian work values trying to map on to European work values.
    - Indian centric, European employees are treated as second class.
    - Assigned to a customer and left to rot.
    - Detached from Wipro as office is always at customer site.
    - No idea who the line manager is and no one to escalate problems and no one to measure my performance so salary increase did not exist. I had to hunt people down and voice my success the fight for bread crumb salary increases.
    - No real appraisal system, just a rubber stamp exercise for managers in India that I don't know. Good or bad the salary remains the same.
    - The only training was internal garbage that you had to complete annually.
    - Internal Wipro applications and systems slow and clunky.
    - Expense process from the dark ages that can take 3-4 weeks from claim approval to getting money in your account
    - Career Opportunities, good luck with that.
    - HR Management puppets that spout the party line, I could not trust them

    Advice to Management

    As if they will take notice and listen, anyone to whom speaks out is let go.
