    Pros

    On a very serious note NONE.

    Cons

    Let's start from top. All so called CXOs are real dud. They are in the organization because some how or other they are relative or connected to chairman. That's their qualification to be in the organization.

    This should not be called a company, the culture of the company is of a property broker firm. This comparision would probably be disrespect to property borkers. The HR do not frame policy, they look for opportunities to frame employee so that they can manage some salary deduction. For example, if you are late by a minute to office for 4days in a month you get one day salary deduction.

    Company works on hire and fire policy. One of the management member said once that they don't really believe in interview. "We hire double of required number of engineers and then fire the excess retaining best among them". One can drive conclusion about its culture.

    Most of the managers and above have no idea what they are doing ; you can't expect them to give you your KPPs.

    Deduction of salary is one Strategic practice for cost cutting. Perks is alien word to them.

    The salary is credited on 7th of every month. God knows in which era the HR is living. if you work under NAREGA program of goverment , you get your pay on time. By the way this is retention policy of the organization.

    People are treated like real RESOURCE here. This is probably one the companies that has taken HUMAN RESOURCE term very literally.

    Lieing to customer and employee is social norm here. They claim to be company of 1500 people. In actual they are less than 500. Most of the overseas offices are a sham. Its run from employee house address.

    Once you resign, you have had it. No pay and you will never get paid for the notice period you serve.

    If you have got an offer from gateway, RUN away as fast as you can. It will simply ruin your career plan and will give you only nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the management. Value your employees. If you want to be big, think and act like one.

    Not an right option to opt even in worse case. Good option for flatterer & big mouth. Moreover, beware of HR Policies.

    Pros

    Good only for freshers to learn and get initial exposure (forgot being loyal to company, there is no real value to management)

    Cons

    Employer-friendly HR policies only.
    Forgot the receive variable pay-off. It is up-to management.
    Bad place for developers to work.. no personal-professional work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advise, because they didn't value to any advice... If valued it could have reached to different level.

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst Programmer in Ahmedabad (India)

    I worked at Gateway TechnoLabs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well nothing good other then training period. If you are fresher and looking for break then grab it.

    Leave it once training is done. Otherwise they leave you.

    Cons

    Numbers of problems

    1. Both directors only wanted to earn money.
    2. So call top management with senior managers including CTOs and CEOs only focus on how to ruins developers. They make sure that developers works more then 12 hrs and they could achieve the deadline with less people. So then they can earn good bonus and incentive
    3. HR only wanted to listen top management. As they also wanted to paid more by being goody in front of mgmt.
    4. Many pathetic managers. They just tell fake story to developers to impress them.
    5. Biggest height COO, Director HR, CTO, Sr. Managers in human. Sick mentality.
    6. No security for girl candidate. Girls who know how to please mgmt, then this is best company for you to work with.

    What else I can write more? Hope this is enough to take a decision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice for you. Because if you really wanted to became nice company then you might have tried in past 15 yrs. Hard luck for you.

    Pros

    Company culture is fun. Very good project opportunities. Very good technology exposure.

    Cons

    Very complex organization structure. Too much working hours. Six days a week. Employer favored policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    5 days a week. Bit less working hours. Due to more working hours, employee's personal life gets affected to a significant level.
