From two sources, I came to know that WIPRO who is a software major conducts tests/examinations/ employee skill & knowledge evaluation tests periodically. Those who fail to appear these tests or
fail in these, more than two times are shown the door . -Given the 'pink slip'. You can imagine the level of employee stress due to insecurity in keeping the job, in that soulless corporation WIPRO !!!! You can also imagine the politics, back biting/stabbing in such an environment.
Of course the company will claim that this is company policy, and purely its internal matter , designed to constantly improve employee knowledge and competency. They will say this is required for 'competing' in the global market,which is essential for the company to survive. Do Indians need such 'international work culture' if it corrodes mind and body, induces great stress and creates dependency on ANTI-DEPRESSANTS, the consumption of which is increasing at a fast rate across India ? Can you ever be peaceful with regard to your near and dear ones -father, mother, son , daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt etc- if they work for stress inducing companies like WIPRO. There is a possibility that they will become a mental wreck in such job environments.
This kind of work-culture and job-environment is not limited only to IT companies like WIPRO. In all other sectors this hire & fire culture has spread, which is quite alien to native Indian work-culture. The stress factor is geometrically proportional to the salary drawn.
A sober account of the negative experience of a ex-Wipro employee can be had at the following link http://koumudi.blogspot.in/2012/03/off-goes-my-job-in-wipro.html. More accounts of ex-employees could be obtained by systematic searching of the web.
