    Pros

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

    Cons

    Full 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 ManagementAdvice

    Only advice is - because of your stupid management, Patni is not growing up.

    I have been working at Patni Computer Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good training for freshers.
    good salary for laterals (but God knows if they will get any project or play TT all day).

    Cons

    1> not much quality work now (after igate acquisition).
    2> RMG is pathetic. Most of the time employee gets project/location he does not want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1> Allocate project on the basis of merit (for fresher).

    2> Instead of long term onsite, there should be rotation policy. So that everyone in team get a chance.
