    Pros

    My 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.

    Cons

    Benefits:
    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 ManagementAdvice

    PTO 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

    Pros

    live a stagnant life, retired life. Patni has a lot of scope to improve in communication area. The communication between the heads in Mumbai office and thebranches in other countries is all broken. also they can learn from mindtree consulting. get some more brilliant guys like they do in Mindtree and compete aggresively. also get some more training from the vendor who will be more professional rather than the inhouse trainings. having said that patni also has some plus points. as they do have a laid back atmosphere at delivery sites. so if you want to live a retired life than its a good place to be. but expect just less 1% increments in a year.

    Cons

    No Training, No investment in employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in people's training in USA
