    Pros

    - Great compensation if you join in the US as a local employee
    - Streamlined support processes
    - Generally cordial and friendly employees
    - Good infrastructure in India, with a very nice campus in Bangalore. Overall atmosphere on campus is conducive for work.

    Cons

    - bad salary for employees deputed from India
    - the company had a phase of red tape a few years ago, including simple things like office supplies (hopefully it isn't so anymore)

    I have been working at IGATE

    Pros

    Salary comes in Time, Insurance company United healthcare is Good.

    Cons

    All its policies are India Oriented even its Global policies. HR @ is just puppet of Delivery team.
    Project Delivery team is working on ad-hoc manner no proper structure to Project management, KT for New member, no training for Onsite team members. One can work on IGATE project as Contractor but there is no point joining them as Full time employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more structure to each of your process, Employee hiring, Induction to New project, Finding Appropriate project for team members. The way its working now will not take it to higher level.
