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

    Pros

    1) Large organisation
    2) MNC or corporate culture is a plus to learn for a fresher
    3) Gruelling training, a fresher will end up with knowing a lot of coding in a variety of languages

    Cons

    1) Many a times, one has to sit on the bench. (So no real work to do) That is not something a fresher looks to do straight out of college
    2) a 2 year bond is really a tight leash on a fresher. The bond is pretty expensive to break is also a downer!

    I worked at iGATE

    Pros

    Great work life balance, opportunities for international trips, nice ambience in work place, amazing options for food, creche facility for kids and thr list goes on

    Cons

    On the technology front still a far way to go..the seniors are lethargic so the juniors are bound to learn from them and be like them..very few people who really care for change..one should not stay for a long time here unless you have the best of everything..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bringing in change would be effective only if the upper management is consistently ready to change and challenge..
