    I worked at IGATE full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing is good apart from Some fun activities frequently.
    Good for HR people.

    Cons

    1) Worst higher managment.
    2) Almost no project apart from 2/3 big account. If there is anything new then learning scope is too much limited
    3) Notice period is not negotiable even for the benchers
    4) Less buses
    5) Bad production system. you are hardly notified for any activities done on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Timing must be flexible and employe must be allowed to carry any bags , regardless of the logo checking, few gates open on specific timings. Many HR Policy needs to be revised
    2) Buses facilities must be more in few different timings
    3) Production system must be more user friendly and automated
    4) Should get more big accounts

    Current Employee - SSE in Mumbai (India)

    I have been working at IGATE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    What pros to find after spending 5 years and working sincerely getting awards customer appreciation but never translated into good appraisals

    Cons

    Hopeless and insensitive mgmt backed by the Pathetic HR. Ruin employees careers through normalisation.
    Appraisal process its he most fake process.People hired from outside are given good designations and salaried and employees since long only get work and recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management is not even bothered what is going on middle management and middle management is spoiling this company and HR is non existence in this company and if people wants to leave they will not allow peaceful departure....

    I worked at IGATE full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You feel like the smartest person in the Department (whichever you are working for); People are nice, even naive;

    Cons

    The worst company to work for - there are only 3 types of people who would disagree publicly - those who still work there and are afraid to loose the lousy underpaid positions; management - because they are paid enough and don`t care about the rest; people who haven`t worked there.

    Most of the people employed around you will just talk "big game" (especially management), but when it comes to actually using the knowledge, even most basic understanding of finance, simplest products - will cause confusion and anger due to putting them at disadvantage / exposing;

    Administration is pure nightmare (forgetting and loosing documentation - is normal, unfortunately often occurring "one-time thing"); Over salary HR will try to rip you off over even most basic things (read the contract 10 times before signing the contract, and don`t be afraid to say no, this company has extremely hard time to find someone willing to work for them);

    Management is very afraid for their fragile positions and this lack of confidence (caused by the lack of knowledge) translates into mind-numbingly simplistic quarterly reviews;

    Most of the promised projects are complete lie: non-existent.

    So called offshore is low quality, slow and people with 0 knowledge, and worst of all: if you try to teach them something, the most basic / straight forward knowledge - they will show signs of understanding for a moment and then forget what they already knew and anything you taught them.

    Accept the contract only if you are really desperate (like really really desperate, because whatever they say about the projects is a complete lie), but don`t overstay more than necessary.

    The way this company makes money is taking away operations (and operational costs) from the big corporations and trying to replicate it with low quality, underpaid and unskilled staff with high staff turnover. Generally the result is low quality, data loss and eventually loss of clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just quit and close the company: worthless, low quality work results from this outsourcing company.

    My prediction that any company who has / will entered / enter in a deal with this "promising & cost reducing company" will rather soon realize that the reduced operational costs are not worth the quality loss what this company produces.

    They will ask you to change your technology.

    HONEST REVIEW-No Job Security as well as Cheap Crowd

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at IGATE

    Pros

    Please Consider this before joining the organisation-

    Please don't join this organisation if you want to be a happy satisfied employee.
    The one thing that you will notice immediately would be the Illiterate and ugly crowd that this company has ... I mean the worst.
    The management is in hands of cheap and illiterate people, they seriously need to learn skills to manage the employees and not take them for granted. Management can twist and turn its policies at their will but if an employee accidently make a mistake no body is going to cooperate with him/her.
    No Job Security as well as Cheap Crowd.

    Cons

    You are not going to get any exposure to new opportunity and will end up having a dead-end job.
    I have worked here for 1 year so I know. See I have not yet complained about its pathetic transport system yet because this Organisation has much more worse issues, but just to give you some insight on transport. The transport department can any day ask you to come on your own because their cab or bus suffered a breakdown and you don't get any home drop or pickup.
    The Restrooms here is the worst its worse than a Public toilet ... again because of the gaon-wala crowd that we have here as they don't know how to use the Toilets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn some skills.
