    Technical Designations in IGATE

    Technical Architect (Former Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsIf you dont have a job & ready to join at very low salary..this would be ideal organizaion

    ConsMost people with technical designations have nothing to do with technical. They either do people management or quality audits. Being a IT Services organization also it is struggling with technology.
    Most Patni managers are not technical as a result cannot deliver projects successfully.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent place to work, though not a perfect one

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    Pros1) Good pay package (if you are a lateral employee)
    2) Easy work environment
    3) Opportunities are plenty
    4) Best place to learn
    5) good crowd
    7) Transparent policies

    Cons1) Huge chain of heirarchy
    2) Pathetic transport
    3) Support units such as IT, admin, not very helpful

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport functions like IT infrastructure and transport need to be employee friendly - transport in particular is highly inconvenient, particularly for people staying far off - no options in case of medical emergency as well

    I worked at iGATE as a contractor

    Complaints Analyst (Former Employee) Bridgewater, NJ

    ProsExposure to Fortune 500 companies. Increases professional experience.

    ConsInability of company to recognize good talent and place it accordingly. Supervisors and managers lack experience and core knowledge of positions they were supervising. Salary does not commensurate with experience. They should allow for those with more experience to earn more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlace the proper talent in the correct positions. Do not place people with out experience in supervisory roles. It leads those being supervised disgruntled. Allow flexibility in salary. You have to have the ability to pay those with more experience a higher salary. That's the only way to retain talented employees.

    It's good as startup in india and average in US

    Test Engineer (Current Employee) Edison, NJ

    Prosit's training system is very good. Culture and work environment is not changed significantly after acquisition of Igate to Patni.

    ConsPromotion policy is good for the people working in the same business unit, and mostly dependent on the reporting officer. But the promotion option is ridiculous for employee who is hired from other Business unit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf one BU is deploying its resources to other BU, the base BU superior should keep eye on those deployed employees,especially at the time of apprisal, otherwise those will be humiliated and leave the company with bad memories.
    Usually these deployed resources observed as stepchild/2nd class behavior in that BU, especially it comes to the choice of the BU reporting officer. RO will promote, motivate, and encourage the people only belong to his BU.
