OK

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bloomington, IL

I have been working at Patni Computer Systems

ProsGood Teams ,Hard Working members.Early Leadership roles. Early on-site opportunities. Friendly work culture. Healthy work environment. Lots of other activities.

ConsHR policies needs to be improved, no talent retention. They think everything can be done by freshers. No control over salaries. L1 -H1 B salaries differ in thousands.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are strength. All those who have left the organization, really wanted to do good for the company. But organization couldn't retain the talent.

Average employer.

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at Patni Computer Systems

ProsMy coworkers are generally friendly and helpful. Patni permits time off for family reasons with no problems. There are bonuses which are paid quarterly for some positions which are based on revenue goals. Supervisors are generally friendly and helpful. Paid Time Off (PTO) policy has improved recently in that employees get additional PTO sooner rather than after 5 yrs of employment. Other benefits are probably average when compared to their competitors.

ConsBenefits:
The PTO policy still does not usually permit accumulated time from one year to be carried over to the next. The sick days and vacation days are lumped together. In this regard, employees need to save some time for the end of the year in case they get sick. It is better to have a separate "sick time" catagory with an incentive to not use it. E.g. 10 days sick time available, the first five of which are paid to the employee as an additional bonus at the end of the year if not used. There are no policies for cost of living adjustments ( all salary increases are performance based, however the bar for performance increases is very high).

Advice to Senior ManagementPTO and sick leave should be separated. The current policy of grouping sick leave with vacation leave forces employees to save some for the end of the year
