    Some method in madness

    Engagement Manager (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsVery intelligent, hard working and helpful people. Benefits included salary and bonus. For a few years due to the challenging economic climate and lack of focus, bonus was (very) limited. There is no focus on training / career development since cost cutting is always on the senior management's mind.

    ConsBureaucracy, focus on profits, no training / career development. The mid-senior management just dont want to work with one another.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA long term thinking on the company's focus, strategic thinking and employee benefits is required.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pathetic company if you want to stay long

    Software Specialist (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    ProsThis company has good development processes and they really hard working people. Onsite opportunities are very easy (sometimes there also a lot of politics).

    ConsFull of stupid and no knowledge managers. Managers really do not know any project management processes, they just sit there and check ICICIDirect.com. Specially insurance business unit managers. Seniors have vengeful nature and they tell you this on your appraisal day :D. They bug you for trifle things. Sweet-talkers can survive without doing any work. HR policies are pathetic so HR department. No salary increments. They think any knowledgeable guy can be replaced by fresher.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOnly advice is - because of your stupid management, Patni is not growing up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
