    I worked at Patni Computer Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A long term thinking on the company's focus, strategic thinking and employee benefits is required.

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

    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.
