    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Patni Computer Systems

    Pros

    This is a good company for beginners...period. Experience professional should stay away. It only a 'Paathshaala' Patni ki Paathshaala. Freshers can come and then run away once they got some experience.

    Cons

    No work ethics...full of already screwed up projects. Unrealistic deadlines.... Experience guys are working round the clock. A few old timers/Managers are enjoying at your cost. And taking promotions too !!! No effort recognition at all. Only a few favorite people will take away the credit. In case of any issues or failures ...YOU take the blame.

    Advice to Management

    Desperately need to to look at you treatment to senior employees. Especially leads/architects/designers/ etc.... Stop favoritism...and acknowledge sincere and hard working people. No wonder you don't find experienced people.

    Many changes have happened since I left the organization. But I feel, they should make the organization bit leaner. I see too many managers around in the company.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Specialist in
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Patni Computer Systems

    Pros

    Health Benefits are top notch and very affordable Growth accounts are good to work in, however, stable/mature accounts tend to stagnate individual growth.

    Cons

    Salary levels are at towards the bottom of comparable players in the market. Growth and opportunities are on the whim of the handful that control the account overall, leads to autocracy and nepotism within the group, Employee personal concerns/considerations are again addressed on the whim of the handful mentioned above. Paid Time Off - always has to be haggled no matter how long you decide to take a vacation after.
