    I worked at iGATE

    Pros

    They maintain strong relationships with their clients which allows for a better working environment when you are on a project.

    Cons

    The HR and lower level management are not properly trained in in-boarding processes or out-boarding processes making both steps extremely frustrating and time consuming. There was no formal training or coaching on how to use the systems that were required for pay and benefits.

    My experience in iGATE has been very good. If you are one of the top consultants, they surely make you feel noticed.

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

    Pros

    iGATE is a good place for beginners and less experienced people to groom themselves as the training is more on the job and creates good learning environment for quick learners. The work life balance is good and need to improve compensation.

    Cons

    Compensation offered is below par on the industry standards which is a reason why iGATE attracts few top talents and only when the position requires

    Worst practitioners in the tech industry

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at iGATE

    Pros

    In the US they have a very nicely priced healthcare plan

    Cons

    They are contractors but they do not look after the best interest of the company that contracted them. What they look after is how to increase their revenue and will sacrifice work efficiency at the expense of the client. The so-called professionals that they field from outside of the US are sub par at best. Quality of work is consistently sub standard. Offshore resources are mostly new graduates and are learning on the job at the expense of the client. As a professional for many years, it was an embarassment to be associated with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your projects much more closely. Do not simply rely on the paperwork that you are given. Conduct impromptu on-site audits.

    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.
