    1) Compensation is below market standards in tier 1 cities of US 2) In some projects, technical resources are allocated for billing purpose and to increase head count without taking any actual work from them and asking them to work on excels and word documents not relevant to projects 3) Canteen facilities in some of IGATE - India locations don't meet sanity standards and problem not resolved even after raising the issue with HR and other stakeholders

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at IGATE (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Igate is a good company for freshers to learn basics. All depends on your manager and project. Could get onsite opportunities.

    Cons

    Salary hikes are not that great. Only 3 months maternity leave. Very hard to get LOP. Doesn't well recognize internal talent

    Advice to Management

    Increase maternity leave. Try and retain the present employees rather than looking just for lateral entries. Otherwise work culture is good.

    Pros

    Good Team, management, fair culture, onsite opportunities, HR policies, Medical insurance and leaves.

    Cons

    Do not pay as per the market standard. Always need to change your base technology and domain as per the projects. No clear visibilty for your onsite assignments, stay/project duration in some cases, not applicable to all employees.

    Pros

    Good performance tracking tools, excellent processes

    Cons

    Bad leave policy in the US, salary increments are paltry

    Advice to Management

    Do with the whole BU-specific resource allocation as this is severely limiting the opportunities employees get after getting released from a project
