What my Managers say about me:
By: Pankaj Gandhi, CFO, Gandhi Brothers
I would highly recommend Bhavin as both a Staff Manager and I.T. Consultant . I hired him as an I.T. Intern in 2002, when we decided to use evolving technologies to improve performance of various operations at Gandhi Brothers. We wanted to create our corporate website, inventory management system and account management software. Bhavin not only developed solutions for our inventory management system but also helped us in enhancing the system by asking for constant feedback. I was really amazed to see the level of professionalism and knowledge in the young student like him. Due to his dedication and hard work, he got promoted to I.T. Consultant within one year. During his time as an I.T. Consultant, he helped us in creating few other software solutions by managing team of 4 other interns.
I consider him to be one of the best young consultant I have ever worked with. He is able to manage a diverse staff with a fabulous blend of firmness, understanding, and teamwork – all with the goal of meeting the needs of the business. He is able to deal with all levels of senior management with diplomacy and a spirit of cooperation. With a comprehensive knowledge of the principles and best practices for all I.T. related solutions, he excels at leading his staff to meet milestones and deliver quality results on time.
Even now, we consult him regularly to get his advise on I.T. infrastructure related decisions. I wish him good luck for his future.

Bhavin has worked for me for more than two years as a lead in the tools and automation development team. Bhavin is very strong technically, able to master new systems and technologies quickly, and has excellent development skills. He has a solid knowledge of software testing and QA. As a lead, Bhavin is very well organized and effective. He plans thoroughly and in detail, and executes reliably. He is well-liked and respected. Bhavin is also very good at training and mentoring his team, as well as training tool users and automated test developers, even those with little development background. Bhavin is serious, but pleasant and a pleasure to work with. He is dedicated and hard working. I particularly appreciate his ability to anticipate requirements and his initiative in going beyond his defined tasks.
By: Keyur Desai, QA Manager, Broadcom Corporation
I highly recommend Bhavin Gandhi as a candidate for employment. Bhavin was employed by Broadcom Corporation as a System Analyst/ Engineering Intern from May 2006 to Dec 2006. Bhavin was responsible for designing, creating and implementing various automation tools such as automation of tests report generation.
Bhavin has excellent communication skills. In addition, he is extremely organized, hardworking, reliable and computer literate. Bhavin can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. He is flexible, quick learner, and willing to work on any project that is assigned to him. Bhavin was quick to volunteer to assist in other areas of company operations, as well.
Bhavin would be a tremendous asset for any company he works for and has my highest recommendation. If you have any further questions with regard to his background or qualifications, please do not hesitate to call me.
By: Chris Jordan, Tools and Automation Manager, International Game Technology (IGT)
Bhavin is an exceptional person and a dedicated employee. He has repeatedly accepted and handled the challenges that he has been presented. He has also effectively managed teams and projects, and has progressively taken opportunities to continue to develop his role as a leader.
Bhavin is a team player, and his positive attitude is infectious. If given the opportunity I would definitely work with Bhavin again.
What my direct reports say about me:
By: Adam Sadler, Software Engineer IV, International Game Technology (IGT)
I had the privilege of working with Bhavin as my manager for approximately 5 years and he is easily the best manager with whom I have ever worked. During our time together at IGT we built a solid foundation of teamwork and mutual professional respect.
Bhavin is an excellent manager for three reasons:
First, he excels at management on an individual level. On our team he was managing about ten people and he modified his communication strategies for each us. I found this to be very valuable, because rather than expecting me to conform to his style he adjusted to his approach to find something that worked for both of us.
Second, he works to ensure the development of the staff on his team. Bhavin was always encouraging us to set ambitious goals that resulted in not only returns on investments for the company, but also in professional growth and promotions for us as individuals.
Third, he set goals for our team that were designed to improve the company and cement our position as an industry leader. The portion of IGT where I worked with Bhavin was called the “tools team.” Our purpose was to create software that enabled other engineers to do their jobs more efficiently and to help them produce the best products possible. He is an absolute wizard with numbers and was able to quantify the benefits of our contributions to the company’s bottom line in a way that upper management found extremely useful.
If your company is looking to hire a manager, you couldn’t do better than Bhavin. He will be thoughtful about the service to your organization and an asset in developing your employees to get the best from your team for your company.
By: Mark Sy, Software Integration Engineer, International Game Technology (IGT)
Bhavin is a manager that you can respect and trust, one of the best manager that I have the pleasure of working with. He has consistently built positive, productive relationships with us, valuing diversity and differences by discussing them openly with respect and appreciation. He provides continuous coaching and encourages us to study and learn new technology, so we can grow and achieve a higher level of performance and value to the company and to ourselves.
Bhavin is also business savvy and analytical, he understands the marketplace and how to maximize our company’s financial performance and delivers superior results. He also understands the agenda, issues, and concerns of customers served and decide the right work to drive change, continuous improvement, and problem solving while using resources effectively and ensuring ownership and accountability. He takes actions that are consistent with desired outcomes whether it comes to product quality, customer satisfaction or saving money for the company.
Another one of Bhavin’s strengths is customer service, he has made customer-focused decisions by ensuring IGT quality standards, removing barriers to satisfaction and ensuring delivery of the best customer service in the industry. He constantly coaches our group to anticipate changes or drive changes to better serve our customers when it comes to testing products.
By: Mohammad Reza, Software PA Engineer, International Game Technology (IGT)
Bhavin was one of the best Managers that I have had an opportunity to work with. He has done an outstanding job in managing 3 of his different teams as a cohesive unit. One of the qualities that I have always appreciated about Bhavin was his transparency and his ability to hold himself accountable to the team and others. You see very few managers taking the blame for team’s lack of output, and put themselves on the frontline. But Bhavin was one of those few mangers. He has always provided us the opportunity to grow and experiment with our work. And even when we have failed, he was right there by our side to motivate us, as a true leader. Bhavin is an excellent speaker as well, and his ability to motivate others and create a positive environment around him is contagious. Working under his leadership was always a positive experience full of positive thinking and new opportunities. Bhavin truly cares about the people work under his supervision and he had always been available to listen and help each individual by giving information or providing opportunities that they need to succeed. He is a wonderful person at work, and I would recommend him as an inspiring speaker and innovative leader.
By: Erik Henie, Software Engineer II, International Game Technology (IGT)
Bhavin is a thoughtful, ROI driven leader, with an attention to detail and a passion about the employees he manages. He consistently pushes his team in a direction to maximize output while maintaining a high amount of quality work. Bhavin is one of the few managers that I have personally had over the years that commands respect from his employees by putting his employee needs and success driven goals above his own. This causes Bhavin’s teams to have significantly reduced turnover and consistent high results. Bhavin has a wide array of skills including but not limited to; Management, Computer Science, Marketing, Six Sigma, Test Automation, and Project Planning. Bhavin would be a fantastic addition to any company and a driver of results in any software quality assurance or development team. I think one of the defining questions any employee needs ask themselves about a manager, is would I work for them again. For me regarding Bhavin, the answer is yes.
What my colleagues say about me:
By: Bruce Lipp, Sr. Automation Engineer, International Game Technology (IGT)
Bhavin is a consummate professional on the Tools and Automation team. His organization, drive, and integrity are unsurpassed. He is relied upon for his knowledge and analytical approach to solving problems, and is regularly consulted by both his peers and managers. Bhavin’s businesslike demeanor and focus on quality does not diminish his approachability and personable nature. He is an excellent trainer whose patience and detail orientation enables him to communicate effectively with audiences of any skill level. I enjoy working with Bhavin and can strongly recommend him to any employer.
By: Tribendu Datta, Sr. Product Assurance Engineer, International Game Technology (IGT)
I have had the pleasure of working with Bhavin Gandhi for approximately 6 months now. In the time that I have worked with Bhavin, he has demonstrated an aptitude for learning new things. It is apparent from his quest for knowledge that he is committed to life-long learning. He is diligent and dedicated worker and is always ready to go the extra mile to complete his projects and achieve goals in a pinch. I believe Bhavin will go far in life because of his openness to new ideas and concepts. I believe that he would strive for excellence in any employment position he holds. I would gladly recommend Bhavin for your organization as an outstanding employee.
By: Premal Tanna, Accountant, Gandhi Brothers
Bhavin and I were the part of the first internship program offered by Gandhi Brothers. Being in accounting department I had an opportunity to work with him in creating Account Management Software for Gandhi Brothers. During that time, I found him as a true leader and an excellent team player. He is very competent in what he does and very good at following through. He is a go to person, who gets things done. Once he takes on a project, I know it will be done right. No question. He works hard without looking like he is working hard. His professional attitude and work ethic is contagious. I’m always motivated to do a little better when we work together. He has a pleasant personality and he is very easy going. He is a valuable asset to any team/organization he is on. Bhavin is a rising star who will succeed and rise to the top of any group.
What my peers say about me:
By: Bret Simmons, Associate Professor of Management, University of Nevada – Reno
Bhavin is one of the more engaged students I’ve had in my time at UNR. He was an MBA student in my Entrepreneurial Psychology class and performed as well as any of his peers. But he is ahead of almost all peers when it comes to experience and professionalism. If that were not enough, he is just a heck of a nice guy. I wish I had more students like him.
By: Tony Thekkekara, Software Engineer, Highly Reliable Systems
Of all the people I studied with at the University of Nevada-Reno; Bhavin was different and by far intelligent. He always brought his business experience and knowledge to the classroom discussions. Bhavin’s greatest talent is to look at the situations from several “real-world” perspectives in order to find a practical solution, as opposed to a scholarly resolution that will only fulfill the classroom requirements. I can honestly say that of all the individuals that I met in graduate school, Bhavin is one of the few that I can trust to stand by my side.
By: Kinjal Mistry, Software Engineer, L-1 Identity
Bhavin was in many of my M.S. classes at Northeastern University. He was a well rounded student in terms of general knowledge and facts concerning the subject matter. He brought current world situations into class discussions and challenged the general consensus provided in the text books. He is also extremely intelligent and hardworking, and is always ready to help his peers. That’s the reason why, he was elected as a Student Representative for College of Computer Science and International Student Leader for the Graduate Students. I highly recommend him to any organization as he will be an invaluable addition to any team.
By: Priyanka Banerjee, Front End Web Developer, TIE Commerce
I got to know Bhavin during my Graduate work at Northeastern University. He is a very well spoken and driven individual. He is truly a gifted leader and an inspirational individual. He goes out of his way to help others achieve and succeed. It didn’t come as a surprise to me when he had won the election as a Student Representative for the College of Computer Science. He is someone I would highly recommend as sharp, helpful, interesting and a very good human-being. I wish him all the very best for his future.
