    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Increase training for the employees(in USA)
    2. Increase position rotation tour (Let people get a raw idea what they colleague are doing and share ideas )
    3. provide on-line like useful courses( e.g. Statistic) to off-sea employees

    Pros

    Fun Place to work. Some BU's have excellent managers while others have mean people full of BS. Depends on where u land.

    Cons

    CEO Ashok Vemuri said in one of the interviews that he wants to build a company that can last for 100 years. That's it.
    But no real efforts were put in place to standardize the appraisal process, pay attention to banding gaps, retention policy not changed ( though IGATE recently got award for innovative retention policies). There are some offices e.g. Chennai IGATE where promotions are given without checking the capability and in Mumbai/Pune offices even capable resources have to struggle for it and ultimately they get frustrated and leave. The same incompetent resources from Chennai then become project managers/program managers/ associate directors and then start screwing up projects/programs and clients relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just taking over Patni is not enough, you have to bridge the gaps - in thinking, appraisal process, remove bias. Try to retain senior people as they are the key link between customers. HR policy needs to be changed as they agree to pay more to laterals instead of tried and tested internal resources.

    Pros

    Has big clients and has good opportunities for Indians. If you are lucky, this company can make your life. Processes are very good

    Highly unstable top management. One location in India has pathetic top management. Not good for girls in that location either. No action taken against managers if complained in that location.
