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

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies, no concept of a work life balance or flexible working, especially for people working in some corporate functions, very strict management with no-one overseeing them to see how they are managing and motivating their teams, inconistent bonus structure with no explanation about how it's calculated, do not following employment law of the country and often do things which are not only against best practice but illegal, the list goes on! Also core working hours are very long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a serious look at your organisation structure and some of the senior people that you have in post. Some of them are awful role models and not good line managers at all. They are the ones that are driving good employees away. Everyone else that stays there is unfortunately in my view 'stuck there' and biding their time until a better opportunity comes along. Review your benefits package and work life balance opportunities for employees. Provide a 'happy' working environment for your employees, not one that encourages 'presenteeism' in the office for the sake of it. Core basic working hours are incredibly long and no in line with UK norms, these need to be reviewed.
