Great leadership vision, need to spruce up execution layer

Associate Vice President (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at iGate full-time for less than a year

ProsAmbitious and visionary leadership. Part of the billion dollar club of IT services companies, through the Patni acquisition - gives the firm the critical mass to go for the large deals and strategic client engagements. Strong portfolio in Banking, Financial Services & Insurance; the strongest areas for outsourcing volumes.

ConsDifficult integration with Patni. Leadership vacuum issues related to small company acquiring a large one. Highly leveraged financials; cost if debt high - limits ability to go for large-scale structured deals with customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementCEO should create a 360 degree communication channel and skip level reviews, so he gets to hear the unfiltered bad news with the good, from his team; and act on them. Executive team reshuffle required, to make sure the Leadership that managed a $120mn firm is adjusted to handle a $1bn firm.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

iGate Experience

Consultant (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I worked at iGate

ProsGood experience, exposure on a variety of projects. Was able to get exposure on multiple projects and got great client facing experience. This enabled me to hone my delivery skills, presentation skills and soft skills in general. The intellectual capital of the company is reasonably strong, especially at Senior Management levels.

ConsNeed more competitive benefits package to attract talent. The company has done some good marketing in India. They need to come up with a better strategy for US, like hiring local talent, being reasonable with travel expenses. Most of the current employees in US are visa holders from India.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to hire more local talent.

iGATE is a place where you can make a niche for yourself and get great experience that would help shape your career.

Project Manager - ERP Implementations (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I worked at iGate

ProsThe company has a distintive model for software services industry, dynamic top management and is a good opportunity for someone who wants to move up vertically.

The work culture is great and people are helpful. The managers are approachable and they promote leadership and high performance. During my 4 years at iGATE, i was promoted every single year and was given great opportunities to work at high-profile clients.

This is one place where one can align software/ IT skills with business interests

ConsIt is not the biggest player in the industry and may be disappointing at times - due to low recognition and tough competition from the bigger players.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo pay more attention on organizational alignment. Build strategy that shows short - term results as well as position fo r long term.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
