    Pros

    Small company has advantage of easily reaching out to management level people.

    Cons

    There is no coordination between the departments of the company. Employee is left stranded in between. Do not adhere even to its own internal policies. Claiming a travel reimbursement is a pain and just to make it sure you have more chances if not getting reimbursed official travel expenses too.

    Advice to Management

    do not take employees for granted.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IGATE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance coverage and if you are an Indian man, you will be compensated and treated well in the US

    Cons

    Women are discriminated against tremendously. A woman can hold the same job as Indian men and will be banded and paid significantly less than them. New employees are coming in making more money than long-term employees because of outdated rules that don't allow current emps to be promoted and have their salaries increased even when they take on new roles.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for the jobs they do and stop treating women as if they can't contribute solely based on their gender.

    I worked at IGATE full-time

    Pros

    Nice people who write a lot of e-mail but never answer the phone!

    Cons

    Totally unorganized, had no office to go to in Philly, they never reviewed my work, promise relocation cost but when I inquired they laid me off. They were writing test case for business requirements that were not signed off. Use help desk software. for everything with little response.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to actually train new employees, as me and another new employee sat in Pensacola for two week with nothing to do or work on. No training and didn't receive our Laptop until the last Friday of our two week of so call training.

    I worked at IGATE as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid if your manager approves your time within the cutoff date.

    Cons

    1. On several occasion I receive my pay late (next cycle). 2. I'm a contractor I shouldn't be subject to quarterly/annual performance review. Clients will fire me if I'm not producing. 3. Indifferent HR, they make you feel you are given a huge favor. 4. They don't want to pay my OT hours. Saying contract with clients are fixed. Even with my client manager approves it. Who's right?

    Advice to Management

    Treat onsite contractor's fairly. America follows an american system. Just saying.
