This is true. Managers have worst mindset & they are not capable of retaining the projects
News is true, many people fired.
It was initiated and based on localization, wipro management sending back to the Wipro employees and stopped GC process for H1B's
American are justified in claiming H1B is badly misused. Indian companies are indulging excess profiteering even in the domestic job market. Senior employees are systematically being denied opportunity to work on new technologies and the fired after they train junior employees.
many of the victims of the practice evolved by nasscom aligned companies fall in the age band of 35-45 years are falsely labeled as technically outdated and non performers. They are denied credit for their work for period of 2-3 years and them labeled as mediocre nad placed in special bucket list which is secretly maintained. Once a person is put in the bucket the person will find himself frequently on bench and denied allocation into project even if he is found suitable and clears client interview. companies have cruel practice of not hiring those who are not on working, effectively ending careers of the people who are fired.
Indian IT firms have some very outdated and bad HR practices that snatch all right of employees.
From Jan end Wipro Started this Aggressively, it is going to go for next 1 or 2 Quarters
This is true. Already wipro forced more than 300 employees to leave people at onsite till Dec 2016. Wipro' CEO an ex- employee of TCS follow TCS way
