Presales

Senior Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at iGATE Global full-time for more than a year

ProsCompany has been around since 80s and 90s and has strong technical capabilities.

ConsSalaries are on the lower side. Promotions are hard to come by even for the talented. Work-life balance could be a problem in some roles as you cant plan because there is no foresight. Information is power and hence its hoarded. Some units are pretty old and the 80s and 90s legacy continues. Too much of focus on non-core issues like dress code, transportation etc. Sometimes you get the feel that this is not an IT company but a Govt organisation.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has a dated legacy. Please think twice before you take abrupt or knee-jerk measures.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
