    I worked at Patni Computer Systems

    Pros

    CMM level firm, facilities like transport+ cafeteria +gym, state of art infrastructure, sponsored studies + certifications.

    Cons

    Lack of inventional spirit in engineers and leads. Somewhat domestic approach while handling the employees and their concerns. No PL for male employees, and a very minimal days of ML for women employees(as the extensions are not granted in 99.9% cases).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more conventional and un-baised approach in handling employees at all levels could boost employee performance and job satisfacton also lower attrition rates. A Diversity Recruiting Drive for Women and those who wish to rebuild their careers after a break due to family responsibilities.
