    Pros

    Campus was beautiful, Work ethics was good and healthy

    Cons

    Salary for employees working with IGATE from training is low. Growth opportunities are plenty but salary for home employees is less as compared to those joining as experienced professionals with same level of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Equal Salary to both employees trained at organisation and working for a long time and to new emloyees joining with experience.

    Pros

    Flexible timings
    Good campus(Airoli Mumbai)
    Luckily I was part of team which used to do core technical projects, hence learning experience was really good.
    Good onsite opportunities as well specially for Japan and USA.
    Employees can get really good technical projects in storage domain.

    Cons

    Pay package should be improved.
    Lacks core technical projects in embedded systems, finance and telecom domains.

    Advice to Management

    Should seriously think about raising pay packages for employees and provide addition perks.

    Pros

    Good exposure in new technologies and good projects. Got to learn alot and also learned how to manage with others and be on track with deadlines

    Cons

    Cooperation from seniors was not good at all. They are not ready to help us freshers upto a required level.

    Advice to Management

    Please increase the salary and also improve the hr department. Their performance is not upto the mark and not satisfactory

    Pros

    Nice for beginners as they have different level of training and higher degree course.

    Cons

    I think this company is not good for experience people,
    they pay less then industry for experience,
    No plans for people on bench as well no body is responsible for these people,
    Management level decision taking are bad,
    They don't think much about the employee career before showing the door, only employers benefits are the top most priority.
    There are people at Management level who never listens.
    Value to service is different for same level of employee.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen before coming to decision.

    Pros

    I gave 10 mins to think what I write about the pros but sorry guys I could not find any other than its cafeteria.
    You will find lot of food options there in cafeteria and all kinds of food dishes you will find.
    I am missing it a lot!!
    Gym is there with very little fees of 400 per month which is nothing compared to how hitech it is and also creche facility available which is very good for a working ladies.
    Ohh yes, parking is free if you are willing to show your face and ICARD, coming out of car at the main gate everyday when going in and out.

    Cons

    - No good compensation
    - Library with no good options on technology. You have to take the paid membership.
    - There is high fees charged for company transport and if you are willing to travel all the parts of Mumbai, you can avail that.
    - There are high charges for a lost of car pass, icard etc.
    - Even emmployees coming in shifts, transport facilities are worst.
    - Drivers will miss your pickup is a normal scanario.
    - You will feel like you are walking on any border territory as company has lots of restrictions on different areas.
    - In and Out from you bay will be monitored very closely. Rules related to card punch in and out needs to be read properly else leaves will get cut automatically.
    - They will ask for a siging a bond for filling H1 and if they send you then they will pay you salary which is equivalent to storekeepers in which only 1 person can survive.
    - You are machine for HRs and Recruit Management Group (RMG Dept.).
    - No access to internet or any social sites or emails.
    - They kicked out many employees who were there more than 3 years with 1 day notice on performance problem which was totally false reason.
    - Managers may talk to you in a totally absurd manner. Sometimes with bad words.
    - No external trainings.

    Advice to Management

    - This is a company with 30k+ talented software engineers. Lots of expectations from the company
    - Take best out of them by encouraging them.
    - Also , spend some money on Research and Development.
    - Produce your own products on databases, storage, OS, backups, peoplesoft etc. instead of just giving services.
    - Company needs to be creative, adventurous and R&D oriented rather than just service giver.
