    Pros

    open culture, respect to every employee, clear goals & measurement of KPIs at every level, strong quality & people processes, pay (& rewards) for performance, good infrastructure, good transport facility

    Cons

    The performance Appraisal System/ Process was a very good one; but its actual yearly implementation at times used to become 'perception based' which ideally should have always been 'performance measurement' based.

    Advice to Management

    Latest management(igate) should analyse thoroughly attrition of employees who had rating in the range >3.75 - 5 i.e. top 30% employees (who have left in past 2 years) and take corrective-preventive measures to take company ahead with a fast pace. Also, current management should encourage any of those employees to rejoin, if they are willing to do so.

    Cons

    Very very less salary as compared to other similar company.HR policies are not employee friendly.Always the new policies come to benefit the company only.

    Treat engineer in professional way.dont think like they are only order bearer and give you maximum profit. without giving them proper dignity and compensation.

    Pros

    CMM level firm, facilities like transport+ cafeteria +gym, state of art infrastructure, sponsored studies + certifications.

    Cons

    Lack of inventional spirit in engineers and leads. Somewhat domestic approach while handling the employees and their concerns. No PL for male employees, and a very minimal days of ML for women employees(as the extensions are not granted in 99.9% cases).

    Advice to Management

    A more conventional and un-baised approach in handling employees at all levels could boost employee performance and job satisfacton also lower attrition rates. A Diversity Recruiting Drive for Women and those who wish to rebuild their careers after a break due to family responsibilities.
