    Pros

    Good Environment at client place to work with,Cafeteria is good.We can utilize the opportunity to learn new things.

    Cons

    May need to work nights and weekends.Health insurance card does not cover many of the major clinics.In order to go to other clinic we might need to get the acknowledgment from the listed clinic and then go to a newer clinic.Health benefits can be improved.No Hike was given.Performance meeting was just a eye wash.Contributions and achievements were not recognized by the immediate Manager and it was not brought to attention to the upper management.work load was high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May increase the allowance provided for Nights and Weekend support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring change in policy. Strict office timings needs to go( have to report minimum 9 hours ). Bring in few policies like allowing needs to work from home like that. Try to keep the talents by providing good salary which they deserved.

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

    Pros

    1. Bus transport
    2. Regular training classes
    3. If you are a fresher, you can learn a lot. If you're a manager, you can spend your remaining career here

    Cons

    1. If you are a middle person (3-8 years experience), you're doomed. Your career will never take off. You will be doing some junk work with no proper onsite opportunities.
    2. Notice period is 90 days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the notice period to 2 months or even lesser
