Fun-place with lots of pasttime activity
Senior Engineer- VnV (Former Employee) – Pune, Maharashtra – February 18, 2016
Excellent workplace for showcasing singing and dancing skills.
People can acquire Table-tennis and badminton skills here as well.
At IGate, there's less room for technical skills to develop, because the kind of work is long time, on a single LoT. Documentation work trump all other technical work that we did at office.
Hard working employees had to bite more than they could chew, due to lackadaisical attitude of less serious team members. As a result, hard workers had to bear the brunt too, instead of any recognition.
It did not matter how early or meticulously an employee completed a job, but if he/she would not spend enough time team-bonding at cafeteria, he/she was doomed.
Managers rely on all levels of employee. Managers are also manipulated easily due to myopic vision of the team's success factors and favoritism. Employees who could can sound their own trumpet, have singing/dancing talent, stand out in the team even if they are lacking competencies.
Senior management has to only entertain customers. Sr. Management at Igate are mostly unaware of challenges that teams face while implementing a fixed price project, or large scale projects.
Overall, IGATE is a great launching pad for fresh graduates. They get to know the industrial practices, get some casual hands-on coding , debugging, documenting to put in their resumes. Anytime over 2 years at IGate should not be considered by a prospective candidate.
Lots of Pasttime activities; Opportunists can make most of increment and promotion
Technically strong candidates can give this company a pass. With the latest merge with Capgemini, there will be even less room for growth.
