    Cons

    - No employee friendly policies (swipe in swipe out, strict leave policies etc)
    - Limited resource

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring change in policy. Strict office timings needs to go( have to report minimum 9 hours ). Bring in few policies like allowing needs to work from home like that. Try to keep the talents by providing good salary which they deserved.

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

    Pros

    Good company for freshers.
    Good learning experience.
    Exposure you will get depends on the technology you get in.
    If you are in CRM then you will get good exposure to the process right from use case till production support. You will be part of each phase and will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Infrastructure needs improvement.
    Even for freeware installation manager approval is required which takes a bit time.
