    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify correct people for available positions. Refine your recruitment process to take right people.

    I have been working at IGATE

    Pros

    Had a very good experience of working on latest and hot technologies like SAS, SQL - teradata etc. Training helps to learn and lot and also helps self assess our performance. Overall a very very good experience from technical standpoint.

    Cons

    Management is not friendly as expected and work- life balance was factor I was missing. Lot of pressure at times, which is tolerable but pressure even continues for long time for certain assignments which is the real concern.

    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....
