    I have been working at iGATE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Got an opportunity to work for an excellent insurance project with good team .So learning in intial phase was quite good.
    Though my project never changed but in most of projects at Igate like mine worklife balance is good.
    Onsite opportunities are there but on some occassions one has to wait for longer period.
    Lot of technical and behaviour tranings are conducted for employees

    Cons

    Now days replacing seasoned developers quitting organization with freshers.
    Salary is low when compared to IT standards.
    Notice period of 90 days is not at all negotiable.
    Management is approachable but hardly take any decisive action on any individual concern

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of giving in general and unecessary promotions,it is better if organization can provide good hikes to deserving individuals and thus retain them.

    I have been working at iGATE full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary will be credited on time without any delay.

    Cons

    Dummy HR policies, and HR doesn't have any power to take decisions. Because of this development managers act as dictators in the company. First thing comes in their mouth is to threaten you by saying you will not get this that...I will screw your career. Worst management I have seen so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the decisions of managers, that what the HR and management are there and paid for. Do not think managers are the one who are doing great, the people who are working for them are in fact great. Company survives because of supporting pillars but not because of good front doors, windows and shelves. good doors, windows and shelves are like higher management and managers.
    Come out off the box and think, if not managers just to achieve their personal goals they will do what ever it takes. Do your job under the umbrella of so called ethics. No ethics then no need to dream anymore.
