    Former Employee - Data Input in El Paso, TX
    Former Employee - Data Input in El Paso, TX

    I worked at IGATE full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is nothing PRO about iGATE.

    Cons

    The pay is bad (raises you have to fight for), you can take time-off WITHOUT PAY, no benefits, training consisted of 10 minutes by someone who then has NO time to answer/help with questions or anything else. You cannot move up at iGATE unless the person in charge "LIKES YOU". HR doesn't even exist, she is not even qualified (El Paso, TX location). The don't appreciate the good workers, but boy does the incapable or butt kissers move up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why, they don't listen anyway

    ==================================================

    Cons

    1. Bad Paymasters - Salary way too low as per industry standards
    2. Ambiguous HR policies.
    3. Too many redundant processes and overheads. Simple work takes eternity to get done due to bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Reduce bureaucracy
    2. Increase salary of employees and reduce outrageously high salaries of higher management.

    Pros

    Fun Place to work. Some BU's have excellent managers while others have mean people full of BS. Depends on where u land.

    Cons

    CEO Ashok Vemuri said in one of the interviews that he wants to build a company that can last for 100 years. That's it.
    But no real efforts were put in place to standardize the appraisal process, pay attention to banding gaps, retention policy not changed ( though IGATE recently got award for innovative retention policies). There are some offices e.g. Chennai IGATE where promotions are given without checking the capability and in Mumbai/Pune offices even capable resources have to struggle for it and ultimately they get frustrated and leave. The same incompetent resources from Chennai then become project managers/program managers/ associate directors and then start screwing up projects/programs and clients relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just taking over Patni is not enough, you have to bridge the gaps - in thinking, appraisal process, remove bias. Try to retain senior people as they are the key link between customers. HR policy needs to be changed as they agree to pay more to laterals instead of tried and tested internal resources.

    Highly unstable top management. One location in India has pathetic top management. Not good for girls in that location either. No action taken against managers if complained in that location.
