    Good for freshers worst for laterals ( 3+ years ).better go with other offers you have.

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you are fresher then there is lots of opportunity to learn because you can work 10 to 12 hours daily. Also there are online , class room based training programmes available yo help mostly freshers. Only work and no play.

    ConsHere self declared genius management think that 3 freshers are more intelligent than a 7+ years lead and senior software engineer( 2+ years) can replace the lead.if you are joining as a lead then better start looking for other options. It's totally depends on your luck, if you are lucky then you will get good projects. If you are knowledgeable and ready to be managers puppet then there may be some hope for you. Even on notice period they would try to force you to work on weekends. Don't expect credit for your hard work. As per growth it's very less compared to market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice because they are the main issue.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    An OK company to work at

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsExcellent training programs.
    Gets opportunity to learn new technologies and broaden skills.
    Good onsite opportunities.

    ConsGreat growth when lower in the organization. Flatens out when you reach seniority or mid manager status. Growth driven more by your association or relationship with your superiors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst practitioners in the tech industry

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIn the US they have a very nicely priced healthcare plan

    ConsThey are contractors but they do not look after the best interest of the company that contracted them. What they look after is how to increase their revenue and will sacrifice work efficiency at the expense of the client. The so-called professionals that they field from outside of the US are sub par at best. Quality of work is consistently sub standard. Offshore resources are mostly new graduates and are learning on the job at the expense of the client. As a professional for many years, it was an embarassment to be associated with this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview your projects much more closely. Do not simply rely on the paperwork that you are given. Conduct impromptu on-site audits.

    Experience in iGate

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Milford, MI

    ProsWhat I would say, iGate Panti is a great international company in the US. It offers a very high pertage of H1B amount among US foreign working applicant.
    It gives its employee 10 days vacation/yearly,flexible office hour and 5 sick leavs, which is also great.

    ConsI give it 4 star instead of 5 because it doesn't give option for its employee to get its stock, that's a big downside in my view.
