Review on Patni by Parul Jain
Brand Value There is good brand recall in Market for Patni. I am not aware of any Marketing campaigns or corporate sponsorship programs that PCS conducts to promote their brand. In Mumbai atleast the huge transport fleet operating does a good job creating awareness about Brand PCS as a BIG Company.
Career growth and onsite opportunities? There are many Onsite Oppurtunities presented as it is has business spread all over world. It depends on demand within a project and new projects that the company gets.
Career Growth is linked with attrition as one is loaded with responsibility and ownership pretty early.Their are also multiple tracks available like Technical,Techno Functional,Solution Architect etc which one can identify with and follow.
How is work environment and how efficient is the communication b/w teams or department?
Work Environment depends a lot on manager that one gets so it shall vary on case to case basis. I have had good as well as bad experiences so cannot generalize work environment. Communications between teams is better than between departments but some amount of perseverance pushes things along between departments.
Work pressure/Work – life balance. It depends again Managers/Superiors in the Project. Correct Project Estimations also are important. Wrong estimations or frequent client design change request can add to pressure .
Satisfaction with salary and quality of work. Compensation is not upto Industry standards. Work Quality is generally good as one gets to work on challenging projects rather than get stuck onto repetitive work for years.
What type of work they do: Product development, Services etc. Or if mix of these then what at percent? There is a Product Enables Services vertical which has 25% of workforce and contributes 10% of company revenue. But it is a Service Provider company.
Job security. Job Security is very High. However incompetent a person is he/she is absorbed in some role but never asked to leave.
Some positives and negatives of the company.
Positives :-
1) Early exposure to Roles/Responsibilities .
2) Onsite Oppurtunities Option.
1) Salary Component
2) Transparency at managerial level.
Do you recommend your company to others? Yes or No and Why?
Would recommend to freshers as one gets to learn a lot in start of career. They would have to compromise on salary front but money shall flow in later as time spent out here is well rewarded in job market.

    Very balanced review.
    however if the person is incompetent, it is quite clear during the gruelling Patni Training Program for frshers known as PPP. if the person indeed is incompetent, he/she is given fair chance to make progress where they lack, but it is not true that they will be absorbed in some or the other roles despite of results.
    A resource is not absorbed in the company and allocated to project till he/she clear out all the PPP tests/retests. Though if the person in question fails to show any positive improvement, he/she is discontinued from the further process.
    PPP is the keyword or rather key phrase, if you manage to scrap it, you are floating very well. All the other things written are very much what i have been encountering. part about the fleet of transport is amusing but very very true 😉
