    ok work culture and work life balance. you can learn a lot at initial stage of your carrier. Good people to work with.

    no good salary. Bad HR policies. No vision at senior management level. No location specific growth or focus. Was one of the pioneers in IT but currently not even among top 10.

    I have been working at Patni Computer Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    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 think any knowledgeable guy can be replaced by fresher.

    I have been working at Patni Computer Systems

    Pros

    - You must be in a big account which is having high visibility to higher management to grow fast and get fair rewards - The same is true about onsite opportunities - Good transport facility in all over the city - Good and hard work will be recognized

    Cons

    - Very low in salaries compared to market - You are in demand only when there are projects matching your skill else you will be thrown in the dust bin - Pathetic appraisal process. Huge politics while giving ratings and promotions - Promotions are preconditioned by passing internal exams which is the most ridiculous HR policy - Very bad HR policies

    Pros

    The senior management is encouraging and motivating using words. The organization claims to provide a good work-life balance. the transport facility provided to the employees is one of the best in Mumbai.

    Cons

    You may be "hardworking/ intelligent/ sincere/ dedicated" in the eyes of your boss throughout the year..... only during the appraisal time your boss sees that you happen to have none of aforementioned qualities. None of the HR policies seem to be employee friendly.
