    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
