    I have been working at IGATE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits and 401k

    Cons

    No training, horrible people, frowns on and discourages asking questions, totally unprofessional environment.

    Advice to Management

    Do better..much better. Weed out the toxic and poisonous employees instead of encouraging them to continue spewing their venom.

    I worked at IGATE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Medical Insurance - United Health Care. Low monthly payment for family coverage, low co-pay.
    401k contribution is average [ industry standard ]
    Merge with Capgemini, so lots of opportunity available.
    That's all.....

    Cons

    Since the HR, Finance and all the other team are in India, they have no clue how process things here in USA.

    * First Paycheck was delayed [ understandable ] but I had to call people to find out when or how I would receive it. [ they sent it by mail, with no prior notification or communication from PM]
    * Took six months or more to check Background, even though status shows green and submitted all related documents. Different dept. ask for similar docs every so often, instead of sharing info between them.
    * Communication is horrible, they think ..they did a favor by giving you a job. It should be a mutual respect.
    * Indian HR and Finance dept will asked you question via email only, but if you asked them a question, you get NO Response.
    * They still have TONS of glitches on their INTRANET, that means submitting DOCS or accessing data is painful.
    * OWA has only 100MB, seriously!!!! so you have to forward all your important mail to your personal email [security hazard] to manage storage.
    * I can go on, but its worthless... its better for newly college grad [ fresher] but if you have family I would stay away from this Institute.

    Advice to Management

    Have a decent communication with your employee, it will go long way......

    I have been working at IGATE as a contractor

    Pros

    Pay is ok , Nice co- workers most are willing to help you out if needed. Love the brake room nice picnic area if your a smoker that's were we hang out. Big verity of snacks.

    Cons

    Training sucks , Takes 3 or more weeks to get called in to actual work after your told you have the job. When being trained the trainer is off talking to other co- workers , IM other co- workers , or using rest room 2 or 3 before 1st brake. Management don't pay that no mined if she did she would see that there is 2 - 3 of them going at the same time all the time. That's why that department is always so far behind.

    Advice to Management

    Management may know her job, but she don't know what her people are doing when she is in meetings all day long. If she did her department wouldn't be so far behind. And when she gets new hires she should at least introduce herself to them make them feel like they are part of the team even if she didn't want them .

    Pros

    It's a job and that's about it. Take only if you are desperate for a paycheck.

    Cons

    Lie, Lie, Lie. Terrible communications, Pay is SLOW, Poor (near non-existent) Benefits. Will say/promise anything to get you to get you to sign on. Relocation is a complete JOKE. No professionalism. Will undercut any competitor to get business. Nearly 100% off-shore and they treat US citizens like crap.

    Gret opportunity to work with good customer. Employees are satisfied in terms latest technologies used by customer.
    Employees are always missing all Igate good customers.

    Cons

    Management team are not good. Never given appreciation for good worker. Lot of regional politics came out as results of management deletion.

    Pros

    None to speak of at this time

    Cons

    Dis-organized
    Watch out when they say you wil get reimbursed. More than likely you will not get your money back for re-location and per-diem expenses.
    Employees not valued even after years of service. Use them and ignore them when no longer needed on a project.
    Will throw an employee "under the bus" in the name of kissing up to the client even when the client is in the wrong.

    I have been working at IGATE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good companies for fresher as you get ample opportunity to learn new technology.
    Benefit which provide overall better than industry standard

    Cons

    Career progression sucks in this company. Even spending decade and a half you will not be recognized and you will not receive any promotion if you are at on-site. Don't have a proper green card processing for employees. Will process in EB3 even though you have been a manager for a decade. No career progression.

    Advice to Management

    My sincere advice to new management. Please visit onsite folks and find out what are they worth too. You will meet people who have ample experience both in technology and management which you can tap in a better way. Please come up with an open mind just remove this old senior management who have a tunnel vision.
