    I was left stranded

    Translation-Senior Team Lead (Former Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsVery good benefits package, good salary rate, kept their promises.

    ConsNo real interaction, too many people doing one thing, never made me feel part of it, disorganized. I was left stranded in El Paso because their project was cut off and never offered me a new location, even when they are an international company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to new projects, new hires and the possibility of actually caring about them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst Company to join in the US on a Visa

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe Finance Dept is relatively prompt in clearing your funds like reimbursement.

    ConsIf you are on H1 Visa and want to join iGate for a permanent position in the US, please DO NOT do it. Once your project (for which you were recruited) is over, you will be dumped.
