    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
