I worked at iGATE

Pros

Good experience, exposure on a variety of projects. Was able to get exposure on multiple projects and got great client facing experience. This enabled me to hone my delivery skills, presentation skills and soft skills in general. The intellectual capital of the company is reasonably strong, especially at Senior Management levels.

Cons

Need more competitive benefits package to attract talent. The company has done some good marketing in India. They need to come up with a better strategy for US, like hiring local talent, being reasonable with travel expenses. Most of the current employees in US are visa holders from India.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to hire more local talent.

    I worked at iGATE

    Pros

    The company has a distintive model for software services industry, dynamic top management and is a good opportunity for someone who wants to move up vertically.

    The work culture is great and people are helpful. The managers are approachable and they promote leadership and high performance. During my 4 years at iGATE, i was promoted every single year and was given great opportunities to work at high-profile clients.

    This is one place where one can align software/ IT skills with business interests

    Cons

    It is not the biggest player in the industry and may be disappointing at times - due to low recognition and tough competition from the bigger players.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To pay more attention on organizational alignment. Build strategy that shows short - term results as well as position fo r long term.

    Pros

    iGate is an Indian company having their business interest in North America, Mainly GE. The best reason as an immigrant worker (never knew any American working on the technical side) is that igate has steady businesses with GE companies and it is not unusual to see an employee stays in the same project / location for more than 5 years. Client decides your stress level at work. Over all a good company to start with and you can very well balance the work and home. I worked for 8 years and I never had any problem in getting time off when I wanted to attend my house hold duties or going to India on a 4 weeks vacation.

    Cons

    Well, Upper management never seems to know about your existence, despite the continuous good reviews from the clients. Very much run like a family business. You can not go up in the ladder unless you know the top guys. Salary levels are much below US market standards, but at par comparing to other Indian consulting companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -- Device a system to identify contributing resources at different level
    -- Groom them to the next level instead of market hires known to you.
    -- show resilience of successful bosses.
