    Great growth when lower in the organization. Flatens out when you reach seniority or mid manager status. Growth driven more by your association or relationship with your superiors.

    Pros

    The Finance Dept is relatively prompt in clearing your funds like reimbursement.

    Cons

    If you are on H1 Visa and want to join iGate for a permanent position in the US, please DO NOT do it. Once your project (for which you were recruited) is over, you will be dumped.

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

    Pros

    What I would say, iGate Panti is a great international company in the US. It offers a very high pertage of H1B amount among US foreign working applicant.
    It gives its employee 10 days vacation/yearly,flexible office hour and 5 sick leavs, which is also great.

    Cons

    I give it 4 star instead of 5 because it doesn't give option for its employee to get its stock, that's a big downside in my view.
