    Pros

    Small company has advantage of easily reaching out to management level people.

    Cons

    There is no coordination between the departments of the company. Employee is left stranded in between. Do not adhere even to its own internal policies. Claiming a travel reimbursement is a pain and just to make it sure you have more chances if not getting reimbursed official travel expenses too.

    Advice to Management

    do not take employees for granted.

    I have been working at IGATE full-time

    Pros

    Broad responsibilities, global reach, excellent client list, financially strong, 99 percentile rich medical benefits, and interesting work. The pending acquisition with Capgemini could solve many of the cons I list below.

    Cons

    Far too centralized and rigid with a "one size fits all" approach to policies, pay practices, employment practices, and overall decision making. It is especially frustrating trying to advance the BPO/TPA businesses in North America with the limitations imposed by the "global" policies and practices that are designed for the mainstream business which is IT on a global scale. Examples of extremely bad policies that make doing business in North America difficult include - promotion policy, Internal Job Posting policy, Travel policy, Relocation policy, and many of the pay practices. They promote this great "IGATE University", yet only provide in person training for India based employees.

    Advice to Management

    When making decisions along with Capgemini for post integration work environment, please lean towards a regional approach that will allow decision making by those operating in that region. This highly bureaucratic, centralized approach will continue to inhibit success and growth outside of India.

    I have been working at IGATE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance coverage and if you are an Indian man, you will be compensated and treated well in the US

    Cons

    Women are discriminated against tremendously. A woman can hold the same job as Indian men and will be banded and paid significantly less than them. New employees are coming in making more money than long-term employees because of outdated rules that don't allow current emps to be promoted and have their salaries increased even when they take on new roles.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for the jobs they do and stop treating women as if they can't contribute solely based on their gender.
