Senior Executive - Human Resources (HR Business Partner) (Former Employee)
Mumbai (India)

I worked at iGATE Global full-time for more than 3 years

Pros1. Comparatively lesser pressure (in general) on most projects vis a vis other similar organizations in the Industry, hence a better work life balance.
2. Approachable managers specially in the middle management.
3. HR has a good amount of say in the matters of policy and processes.

Cons1. Extremely less compensation as compared to the industry (not only in the support functions but also in the core business areas). Also internally nothing is done to bring about a parity for the existing ones.
2. Will not hesitate to bring in inexperienced, inexpensive and incompetent candidates as compared to a decent one to save a few thousands, hence very much penny wise and pound foolish.
3. Very rigid policies on promotions, increments, project allocations and a uniform non negotiable 3 month notice period. No exceptions what so ever is given, hence not at all an employee favoring environment.
4. Power concentrated in the hands of very few in the top management & corporate and central teams who take unilateral decisions without even understanding the impact on the ground. At times even the SBU Head seems powerless in many scenarios.
5. Almost no attempt made to retain any employee who resigns (at any level, even with a lot of experience and very good performance)

Advice to Senior ManagementKindly remember you too were earlier working for someone and struggled & fought before you rose to this level. Its no use if you want to really build an employer brand and a sustainable business by doubling the compensation of top management and giving your employees a single digit increment, they too need it and deserve this as much as you do. Please sometimes try to be humans, power lies not in holding back but in giving it at the right time to those who need it the most.
