    Pros

    it's training system is very good. Culture and work environment is not changed significantly after acquisition of Igate to Patni.

    Cons

    Promotion policy is good for the people working in the same business unit, and mostly dependent on the reporting officer. But the promotion option is ridiculous for employee who is hired from other Business unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If one BU is deploying its resources to other BU, the base BU superior should keep eye on those deployed employees,especially at the time of apprisal, otherwise those will be humiliated and leave the company with bad memories.
    Usually these deployed resources observed as stepchild/2nd class behavior in that BU, especially it comes to the choice of the BU reporting officer. RO will promote, motivate, and encourage the people only belong to his BU.

    I worked at iGATE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to Fortune 500 companies. Increases professional experience.

    Cons

    Inability of company to recognize good talent and place it accordingly. Supervisors and managers lack experience and core knowledge of positions they were supervising. Salary does not commensurate with experience. They should allow for those with more experience to earn more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place the proper talent in the correct positions. Do not place people with out experience in supervisory roles. It leads those being supervised disgruntled. Allow flexibility in salary. You have to have the ability to pay those with more experience a higher salary. That's the only way to retain talented employees.
