    Pros

    Some of the people in Patni are extremely bright and will remain good friends and hopefully colleagues when I have managed to escape.

    Cons

    One of the worst places to work imaginable. Terrible senior management with no vision, lack of respect for employees, below par compensation, so much red tape the place is suffocating. Lack of transparency, scrambling to make numbers due to lack of investment in the operational side of the business and a skeptical market wondering when the company will be bought.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with respect. Put in place a fair measurement system and pay the bonus on time - no organization that pays the due compensations months behind schedule will never win the respect of its staff. Ever.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Job stability ( they wont be firing you unless you fare bad beyond belief)
    Hard to think of anything else

    Cons

    Salary ( Expect to get paid below par)
    promotions are given for the number of years worked not on the work you did or the performace shown
    Project Managers are BAD - Some clients will laugh at their competence

    Advice to Management

    Try to offer reasonable pay packet . Hire qualified PM's . dont make anyone a manager just because he has 10 years experience. hire people with good communication

    Pros

    Company is very good if you are not too amitious. It provides some human touch in business which is best part. They are considerate for personal needs of employees. They give oppurtunities to change to different technolgy and domain. However, when it comes to money, the pay package is very embarassing.

    Cons

    Show me the money..compensation structure is the worst among the competetors. It is something like they have taken worst attributes of each company and consolidated into their compensation system. Employees are of low morale due to this. They have too many self imposed processes which hinder the support team performances.

    Advice to Management

    Show some aggression..not on employees, but with the prcess and management
