    I worked at IGATE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    IGATE mumbai has very good working environment. GE is something that scares everyone there :) Projects are good. Different kind of technologies you will work with.

    Do not expect good salary hikes. IGATE is poor at it.

    Cons

    Everything is good in IGATE. Different cultural activities.. you just have to njoy the work you do. If you take your work as challenging then there will be quick promotions. So it depends on you.

    I worked at IGATE

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none.
