Bad experience even after working for 7+ years

Technical Lead (Former Employee)
Mumbai (India)

I worked at iGate full-time for more than 5 years

Pros1. Friendly environment
2. Bus services was free and good at one time (in 2005-2006)
3. Health benefits at Onsite were good.
4. Good learning experience for Freshers.

Cons1. Jobs at onsite does not have any security.
2. No proper planning for employees and resource management is worst.
3. Salary is not up to the industry standards.
4. Some Managers/Associate Directors/Onsite Delivery Head behaves like, they are Boss and their team members are their servants.
5. Bond for everything, for freshers, for Visa stamping, For Onsite, For Education, you name it and they will have bond for it. Even if you have worked for more than 10 years in company, you have to sign bond if you are going to Onsite and they will not give you proper exit if you break the bond. They will harass you and your family.
6. Useless and most arrogant HR.
7. Employee benefits are not up to Industry standards.
8. Overall, you will not be proud to be part of this company. However, if you are fresher and not getting job anywhere, you can join this company and leave the company after 2 years when your Bond is over.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease keep your Associate Directors and higher employee with your company only, they are good in iGate only...Don't let them leave..wherever they go, they will make that company also as bad as iGate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
