BENGALURU: IT giant Wipro is slashing salary offers of fresh recruiters after promising them high annual pay.
The tech company initially promised to pay an annual package of Rs 6.5 lakh to fresherswho successfully completed their training at the Wipro. However, the candidates have now been told to settle for almost 50 percent less salary, according to the official email sent to fresh recruits.
The emailmentions that Wipro will now only be able to pay annual package of Rs 3.5 lakh to freshers. The revised low-salary offer has been given to all the Wipro candidates who have been a part of the company’s Velocity graduates programme for this year. The company is not forcing the candidates to accept the revised offer.
While the decision has been regarded as unethical by some industry experts, Wipro says that people who are starting their careers are getting “immediate opportunity” to build their expertise and learn more.
