not bad

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at iGATE Patni

ProsThey provide good health benefits as compared to similar IT companies here in U. S. A. and managers are very supportive.

ConsAs happens with most of the IT companies, there is lot of politics involved for promotion. Growth opportunities are limited if you are not a favorite one.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to senior mgmt is to give fair treatment to all employees and to resolve employee's problem on time.

So SO

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at iGATE Patni

ProsNew Leadership are doing some great changes. Company is becoming more employee friendly, aggressive and result oriented.

ConsThough top management has changed, the middle management, and people who run the delivery are same...these are the peope who needs to be observed. There are lots of managers in Patni who doesn't know anything and have become managers becuase of goodwill with their seniors. 30% of them wont be able to perform outside Patni. In Patni, the whole appraisal processes were rigged and HALO effect was rampant.
Thats the reason there are many incapable managers in Patni and some really good people have either left or waiting to leave.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk more with employees than their managers to get to the real problems. Managers will create a "fake" environment for you to fool you. Talk to Project Manager's one on one to get to the real truth.
Understand accunts where sales actually is not contributing. The aqccounts are growing becuase of good will of people...the default business will come anyways. Need to make these sales people more accountable who try to show the default business as their hardwork. Hod htem accountable.
