    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...

    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.
