    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......

    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.
