    I was working here since it was closer to place I lived and we had limited options.

    Overall, the management was not very supportive or appreciative about work done. Grandstanding was a norm. Not a paymaster in any way. Office culture was getting lower when I left.

    I have been working at IGATE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a few good leaders who understand your problems and help you grow. People like these is what makes the organization a nice place to work in.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the majority of leaders are self-centered and do not care about the resources. If you get stuck in a project like this, then you have no option but to quit. I have been under two such leaders and have discovered that the project manager holds the most authority. So if he/she likes you, you're good. Otherwise be prepared to either fight a losing battle or just quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-structure the feedback system to eliminate the 'power-holding' managers an somehow incorporate a 360 feedback process.
    Evaluate your managers!!
