I had a wonderful time at Wipro Technologies. Lots of learning.
The company has 9.15 working hours per day. I wouldn't say the company is women friendly; but if you prove yourself and your manager approves of your work, you can command some lenience in timings.
It's again the individulals' passion and drive to excel in the role that can attract perks. I have not sensed any gender discrimination.
Women working such long hours need to have some support system back home, especially in Sakshi's case with young children.
(I would love to go back to Wipro Technologies if given a chance.??)']
Pros - IT leaders, high degree of integrity, corporate environment, payscales as per industry
Cons - A huge ocean today so personal interaction is lacking, location of offices are far-flung, sometimes takes time to get things done
My initial experience was okay, but I wouldn't say they are women friendly during or post pregnancy. Maybe I had a tough manager. I am not 100% sure about the other departments. I was a part of L&D.
Infact I quit as I wasn't sure of the kind of support I would get as I am a single mother and also from my experience during my pregnancy.
I feel Wipro Technologies Limited not much women friendly.
Pros: They will provide more leaves like till 9 months for Maternity leave to feed kids and to take care of them.
Cons: There will be no day care activities provided for newly born babies so that mother can take care of.
They will suggest some of the day care centres near to the office exceptionally in Banglore which is very good.
Wipro is an employee friendly company except for expectant women and mothers. Since there are no formal HR policies on WFH options or flexi hours for mothers, it all boils down to the discretion of project managers and such about how much leeway you are given.
In one of the projects, I got WFH for around 5 months but then had to return to desk for another...
As a company it's not too bad for women. I worked there for 5 years and always try to keep my words. Though I face challenges for my health was at stake. I have to produce medical documents several times as the personnel in hr management keep changing.
They take care of women safety very crucial. There business policies are prior in respect to everyone. You will have emergency nos for any grievance addresses. The centre at Kolkata is not preferable though if you go by their condition you will be on safe side always. The experience is altogether nice. Due to some personal reasons I was not able to serve notice period, for that they charge a huge amount of negative settlement. I had to avail legal advice to get my claims in hand. Still I would say if someone wish she can, the workplace is nice.
Those times were different when women were not given that flexibility which they so much need. Things might have changed now but I cannot vouch for anything. I suggest you contact someone who has been with Wipro recently or still working there.
Well about Wipro Spectramind, its been more than 15 years since I quit the company. I don't think my inputs would be relevant today.
However, when I joined in 2002 it was a new company with lot of focus on the employees, the environment was good and safe as well.
Wipro cares for its employees ,there is no doubt about it.
Cons of working with Wipro - It may become a bit too hectic if there is no "working from home" option. Considering , Sakshi is a single parent with two children , I assume she has her support staff ready and knows her priorities well. Wipro is a highly reputed world class organisation so there is no harm in working with Wipro.
