    I have been working at Wipro full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Salary....maybe but you have to fight for it and they still use stall tactics and offer you wrong amounts hoping you'll just give up on the negotiation

    Cons

    If you are a U.S. Citizen... everything. They spell your name wrong then you have to contest with Homeland Security that you are a U.S Citizen, even though you provided MORE proof than was necessary when hired. Deceptive offer practices including shady negotiation and mis-information. Lack of response regarding salary disputes, benefits and PTO questions. They are disorganized and lack the competency and understanding of U.S. work culture. If you're an IT professional and your department gets taken over by Wipro, watch out. If you're lucky enough to switch over to Wipro, your colleagues will not know how to do anything. If you're salary, you're expected to work more than 40 hours a week for the same pay, but when your client company has designated holidays that aren't on the Wipro calendar you're forced to use your PTO to cover that, or come in to work for no apparent reason. STAY AWAY FROM WIPRO...OUTSOURCING DOES NOT WORK!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you take over a large company's IT department...make sure you are prepared and know what you're doing.
    Don't promise a seemless transition then send the few retained IT people through the ringer just to make sure they get paid on time.

    I worked at Wipro full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing I think about after knowing the policy of it's competitor.

    Cons

    Many ... They don't treat employees well. Also they treat ex-employees very badly.
    You won't see this kind of culture (worst) in any other Indian company. Management I worked with are opportunist and they don't remember our contribution once you left them. Exploitation of is the main goal to achieve maximum profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look into their exit policy and issue all the ex employees experience letter without any hesitation.
    If you are BIG then you should do something BIG for the sake of your employees and ex employees.

    Pros

    They hired me and liked my resume and background

    Cons

    They are more willing to please the client than there employees

    They bascially allowed a client a small private marketing company to fire me for a complaint from an employee of the client that was just power tripping. They basically sat back and threw me under the bus without any fight what so ever.

    Pros

    None. There are no pros. You will loose you family life and family will start loosing you. Horrible company!!!!

    Cons

    Have so many good policies but they use all wrong way to harass employee. Unnecessarily keep employees in pressure with bonds and long notice period so that you cant jump to the next company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop exploiting employees by saying good job and gaining money on peoples blood.
